Full details:

A. Install Dynamic Theme
B. Create a folder C:\Users\USER\Pictures\Microsoft (adjust USER to your Windows Username folder...)
C. Go to Windows Settings - Personalize - Background. Set is to Slideshow and choose the folder from B. above. Change it every 30 minutes.
D. Go to Windows Settings - Personalize - Lock Screen. Set it to Windows Spotlight.
E. Start Dynamic Theme. Set background and lock-screen options to System. Set Daily Bing Image options to save all images to the folder in B.  above. Same for Windows Spotlight Images.
F. Get this .VBS script. Save it somewhere safe and use Windows Task Scheduler to run on a schedule that makes sense for you (I've set it to 13 days). This way, the Dynamic Theme app won't  slowly suffocate your hard disk with thousands of gigabytes of images :)
G. This will take a while before you have many images. If you like, you can already copy some images to the Pictures\Microsoft folder mentioned in B. above (if you don't have any backgrounds, you can torrent a few starter packs... Use Bit Che and search for: nature wallpapers). Also see my reply for my Microsoft Backgrounds Project.

Notice: starting with Windows 10, all images should be in 1 single folder for Slideshow to work. You can use John's Background Switcher if you want to recurse into subfolders.
