Video: Reviewing photos in Full Screen view

The Organizer offers several different views of your photos in addition to the Photo Browser view that you see here. One of those is Full Screen view. Full Screen view presents your photos in a temporary slideshow that fills the screen without the distraction of the Organizer interface. It's a great way to review and sort through your latest batch of photos or to just show off your photos at your computer. To start using Full Screen view, you first have to select some photos. I'm here in the 04_01-fullscreenview subfolder in the Chapter 04 Exercise Files folder.

Reviewing photos in Full Screen view

The Organizer offers several different views of your photos in addition to the Photo Browser view that you see here. One of those is Full Screen view. Full Screen view presents your photos in a temporary slideshow that fills the screen without the distraction of the Organizer interface. It's a great way to review and sort through your latest batch of photos or to just show off your photos at your computer. To start using Full Screen view, you first have to select some photos. I'm here in the 04_01-fullscreenview subfolder in the Chapter 04 Exercise Files folder.

I'm going to select all six images in that folder, by clicking the first, holding the Shift key and clicking the last. And then I'm going to involve the Full Screen view by going up to Display and choosing View Photos in Full Screen. The first thing you see is the Full Screen View Options dialog box, where you can customize the temporary slideshow to your liking. If you like, you can add some background music by changing this menu from none to one of these clips of music.

I'm going to choose Light_Jazz, and if you have other music clips on your computer other than the ones that come with Elements, you can click the Browse button and go out and get one of those. Page duration is how long each slide is going to appear on screen. If you are reviewing your photos, you might want to change this to 10 seconds. I'm actually going to put it at two for purposes of this lesson, to make things go faster for you. I'll leave all of the other options here at their defaults, let me point out this one, Start Playing Automatically, would cause the slideshow to play as soon as I clicked OK here. And this one, Repeat Slideshow, would have the slideshow looping. After it finished, it would just start again.

I don't want either of those; I like to control the slideshow myself. I'm going to keep Fade Between Photos activated because I like having soft transitions between the photos in this slideshow. I'm going to uncheck Show Filmstrip, because I want to show you how you can turn that on later, even after you've made your selections here. And I'll click OK. That brings up the first of the selected slides, and this control bar at the top of the screen. The control bar as such, so that when stop moving my mouse like that it disappears and when I move my mouse, it comes back. That's on purpose so that you can get a full view of your photos without anything else on the screen.

In the Control bar, I'm going to click the Play button to start the slideshow running. (Music plays.) So that's a really relaxing and pleasant way to review your photos, but if you are actually trying to work with the photos, I find that easier to view them one by one. So, there are two ways to do that; one is to use these buttons to the next photo and the previous photo button, to go through the photos one by one.

Alternatively, you can go to this menu, it's called the Action menu and you can choose Show Filmstrip from that menu, and that brings up the filmstrip along the right, which you can use to move manually from photo to photo. I'm going to bring back the Control bar to show you some of the things that you can do with your photos as you are reviewing them in Full Screen view. One thing you can do is give them ratings. So if you really like a photo, you might give it a five rating, and if there is a photo that you don't like, you can give it a one. I usually just use one star or five stars to keep my rating system simple.

Another feature that is useful when you are reviewing your photos is here in the Action menu. From here, you can apply a couple of automatic fixes, if any others subjects in your photo have red in their eyes from a Photo Flash, you can choose Auto Red Eye Fix to have Elements attempt to fix that and Element were also attempt to correct the color in tone of any of your photos from this Auto Smart Fix Command. Let see how it does on this photo. It improved it a little bit, so leave it at that, also from the Action menu, you can attach keyword tags. Previously I created a keyword tag in the Places category for Leadville Selects that I want to attach to every photo from this particular Batch that I really like. So all I have to do when a photo is on the screen is choose Leadville Selects, and that would put the keyword tag on that photo. And then later I'll be able to see all of my selects from this batch, by searching for the keyword tag Leadville Selects.

Let me get another photo up, to show you another feature. Here in the Action menu, I also can choose to mark the selected photo for printing, and when I do that over in the film strip you'll see a little icon of a printer on that photo. Now when I exit out of Full Screen mode, by going to the Control bar and clicking this X symbol, I see this message that I've marked one photo for printing and I can choose to either order prints online or I'll click the print button to involved my Printer dialog box.

I'm just going to cancel that for now. So as you can see Full Screen view offers a useful and pleasant way to review your photos. Try using it right after you import a batch of photos. Just take advantage of some of the Organizer's most useful photo management features.
