Click on picture to enlarge - then click again on it to maximize. On the right top is also a slideshow option. But set that to "slow" or operate it manually (all bottom left). In faster mode it skips pics. I think because they are in PNG not JPEG.

Try hanging off a tree for a day, then you know what you have done. And you might get some muscle.
