It works for me on Chrome/ChromeOS when i am not logged in (clear cache or wait for a while if you just have logged out to see the pics), But with rigth click on the picture icon it is possible to open the picture in another window/tab (but not that usefull if you do not have the text with it).
I was able to open in new tab, until I got about half way through the images, and there were errors on page load.
Then I just opened in safari and it worked fine. Who woulda thunk it? hahah
