This game has glitches if played on Win XP. The photographs are not active once taken.
The game is non linear. Any pages can be done, saved and move to another without finishing that location.
To save the game, click on the window at bottom right and answer the save and exit feature. There is only one save and no load feature. Press ESC skips the cutscenes. The trumpet adjusts the volume.
Use the switch and the crumpled paper(s) in each page to for hints.
Several of the puzzles have several ways to solve them. The puzzles are solved by moving from one location to another and bringing back the solution.
I recommend looking at all the locations and learning what items are found there.
If you want to lessen your pictures - let the wood lice eat them.

The plane parts will be immovable by the cursor when properly placed but can still be blown away by the pelican. First, place the 2 long woods on either side of the 2 top tapes. Then place the large leaves just below them. Place the light colored leaf at the center between the wings until it is set. Place the fat stick below the light colored leaf. The 2 small leaves are inserted on the 2 bottom tapes. The oval wood is in between the small leaves. Place the cap like thing on the front end of the plane. When completed, a plane appears and flies away to Cursed isle.

Go pass the waterfalls, come back and go north directly through the waterfalls.
