Take a look at one of the most advertised features of iPhoto 11, Full Screen mode, and just see what all the hoopla is about. So the first thing that you notice is that when you launch the application you're not in Full Screen mode. You have the regular interface and that's because Apple doesn't want to you get lost right away. So let me take you into the Full Screen mode though and see what you think. There's no need to worry about Exercise Files right now. Jst watch and enjoy. Now the easiest way to get into it is just to go down here over the left corner.
Click on that, there you go. You're in Full Screen mode right now. You click on it again and you're back out. Easy enough. If you're a power user and want to use keyboard shortcut, Option+Command+F to get in and Option+Command+F, out you go. Oh! And one another thing Option+Command+F and you go. Hit the Escape key and you can get out. So now you know how to get in and out, so there's no reason not to play with it, right? Now what if you get lost? Well, let me show you little tip.
See up here in Library you have Events, Photos, Faces, and Places. If we go into Full Screen mode, you have Events, Faces, and Places. Then they've added a couple of new goodies, which we're going to explore in upcoming movies. If you want to do a little image editing, not a problem at all. Double-click right here. Click on Edit. Your image moves over and you have your editing tools and you actually have three tabs. Of course, we're going to dig into the all that stuff too.
Now if you're lost, don't worry, everything's okay. Look up here at the top you can go from photo to photo with these arrow keys. You can get back to the event itself by clicking here. If you want to go all the way back to all of your events, click here, there you go. If you want to get out of Full Screen mode altogether, just click right here. That's all there is to it. It is very pretty. It's a fairly intuitive.
We'll be working in it a lot in upcoming movies and give you a chance to get a little bit more comfortable with it.
