Viewing albums in Full Screen mode

From: iPhoto '11 Essential Training

Video: Viewing albums in Full Screen mode

Well we have a new view in with iPhoto '11. It's called the Albums view but you can only get to it when you are in Full Screen mode. So let's go there right now so I can show you how this works. I'll click down here on Full Screen and we are inside our new Autumn Color album, but look what happens when I go up to the navigation and I click on the All Albums like. It brings me to this new view that we've never seen before, not until iPhoto '11, and it's called the Albums View.

Viewing albums in Full Screen mode

Well we have a new view in with iPhoto '11. It's called the Albums view but you can only get to it when you are in Full Screen mode. So let's go there right now so I can show you how this works. I'll click down here on Full Screen and we are inside our new Autumn Color album, but look what happens when I go up to the navigation and I click on the All Albums like. It brings me to this new view that we've never seen before, not until iPhoto '11, and it's called the Albums View.

Now this is interesting. Up here we have basically all of our photos right here are in this album and it's very iPad like and if you open that up you'll see that all the photos are basically broken down into events, very nice. So everything that's in your iPhoto library will show up here and you can set a key photo for that album. Same way that we do any other events or album in iPhoto is that you hit the Spacebar when you scrub through the images and find one that you like.

Now we also have an album for Last Import, so the last thing that you brought into iPhoto will show up here, and then you have your albums that you've created. And you have created Favorite Vacation earlier and I am going to make this the key photo, so I am going to scrub to it and them I am going to hit the Spacebar and then we have Autumn Color and that's the album that we just made in the previous movie. Now you notice that I have two albums here that don't have any images in them and that's because I had created those albums and then I deleted the photos from the library.

And so they are just empty shells of an album, as we say. And we can clean that up simply by right -clicking or Ctrl+Clicking on them and choose Delete Album and you get this little message. And basically what it's saying is that if there were photos in there, those photos would still be in our iPhoto library but we're going to get rid of the album. But you know what we already got rid of the photos too and we'll clean up this one also. There we go, all nice and tidy.

Now a couple things that you can do when you're in this Albums View is that I'm going to right-click again or Ctrl+ Click and you notice that you have that Play Slideshow option and when I was talking about pulling together this Favorite Vacation album, that was one of the things that I had in the back of my mind is I found the shots that I wanted to be kind of a roll up of all my vacations. And I was thinking that this would make a nice slideshow.

Well just actually do that right now and you make your choice and we have these new slideshow templates, which I'm going to cover in an upcoming movie and once you choose your template and have your settings in place, it just plays and it's really a lot of fun. I think that's one of the key uses of albums is to pull together images for projects such as slideshows and books and things like that. So again, this Albums view that we see right here is only available in Full Screen mode.

If you go out of Full Screen mode - I am going to hit the Escape key - and come here then we just go back to a regular Events view. Our albums are listed over here in the Library pane, but to get to that Albums view remember you have to go Full Screen mode.
