How do you access the thumbnails in your android phone from the phone

Posted on 2013-02-03
Last Modified: 2013-02-25
I just realized after I connected my phone to my computer that there are a lot of photos in the folder dcim\thumbnails.  However I can't find a way to view them from the phone, only from the computer.  
How do I view them on the phone.  It is an HTC Incredible 4G.

I said "From the Home screen tap Gallery, and then tap Thumbnails,

This is a touch screen option  which does not require you to press menue.

Post back for further directions.
