Presentation mode as a full-screen slideshow of observation images

I’d like to create a feature for an “observation slideshow” to showcase the biodiversity of a property, region, or project. I’m imagining a full-screen feature that displays 1 observation at a time in a super simple elegant way - the photo(s) from the observation fill the screen with just taxon info as text, and then passes onto another randomly ordered observation after 5 seconds. Any developers already working on this? If not, I’ll give it a try.

In a couple of related topics linked below, it has been mentioned that there is an old, non-configurable slideshow functionality that can be applied to projects, by adding /stats_slideshow to the end of any project URL.

Otherwise no more general slideshow functionality currently exists, and I think would be much welcomed if you wanted to give it a try. I may be wrong, but I get the sense current staff don’t have much appetite for developing this, with everything else on their plates.

Indeed, I stumbled across the /stats_slideshow feature during my preliminary search. It is quite nice, but I’m looking for something a bit different. I am by no means a web developer, but this project seems simple enough. I’ll see what I can do.
