You can gather a number of figures into a set of slides. On the web and in apps, you can click through the slides. In print, you’ll see one summary slide, and step-by-step text below the image describing each stage in the slide sequence. In epub, you’ll see the summary slide, then each slide in turn, with its slide caption.

See the docs for how to create a slide sequence like this.
