THESE amazing pictures of Mars have revealed how climate change shaped the Red Planet.
More than 1000 photos have been taken by the high resolution camera on NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Here you go, my friend

High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HIRISE) official website

In order to see the images at their best resolution and to use some useful tools, i suggest you to install the Image Access Solutions (IAS) Viewer:

Image Access Solutions (IAS) Viewer: The IAS Viewer is a free application that allows users to view JPEG2000 source files from a local disk or remotely from a JPIP server. Panning, zooming, magnifications, chipping from display and band selection are just a few of the features offered by this viewer. One can animate navigation between user defined way points as well. The IAS viewer supports Linux, Mac OSX, and Windows. No license is required.

You can download it HERE

Once downloaded and installed the software, when you open an image page (in this case i've chosen this one
you have to click on "JPE2 quicklook" (IAS viewer)

and choose you favourite option.
Usually they are

Full image (grayscale, map projected)

Full image (grayscale, non-map projected)

IRB color (map projected)

IRB color (non-map projected)

RGB color (non-map projected)

The image will be opened straight with IAS viewer.

That shows how the media knows about what they write.

Yes, there are more than 1000 photos, I have downloaded around 1400 (I haven't updated my statistics
) from the more than 7100 photos available.

Edited to add that apparently they mixed the newly released 1000 photos (the 5th release to the Planetary Data System) with the total amount of images available.
