Full-screen view overview
Full-screen view shows your photos against a black background for detailed viewing using every inch of the display. Using a dual-display system in full-screen view gives you an enlarged space in which to compare and adjust images.
You can view, compare, and stack your photos in full-screen view. You can also apply adjustments and keywords. When you’ve finished working with your photos, you can use this view to preview and proof your photos.
You can use any of the Aperture HUDs in full-screen view. You can open the Inspector HUD or Keywords HUD by pressing its keyboard shortcut. In fact, you’ll find it convenient to use keyboard shortcuts for most features you use in full-screen view. For more information about keyboard shortcuts you can use, see the Aperture 3 Keyboard Shortcuts PDF available in the Help menu.
Full-screen view has three modes that you can access by pressing the V key:
Viewer mode is similar to the Split View layout in the Aperture main window. Use the filmstrip to navigate through, organize, and rate your photos. Photos selected in the filmstrip appear above the filmstrip in high resolution, filling the screen.
You can dock the filmstrip on the left, right, or bottom of the screen—wherever it best suits your work habits. You can also hide or show the filmstrip.
Use the toolbar buttons and tools to modify your photos. The toolbar includes buttons for creating versions and working with stacks, as well as a full set of image adjustment tools.
For more information, see Work in Viewer mode in full-screen view.
Browser mode is similar to the working layout you see when the Browser is set to grid view in the Aperture main window. The search field and Filter HUD are accessible for filtering photos, and the Library Path Navigator pop-up menus provide access to all the items in the Library inspector.
For more information, see Work in Browser mode in full-screen view.
Projects mode is similar to the Projects view in the Aperture main window. Each project is displayed as a thumbnail image. You can group projects by the year the photos were created or by the folders in which they reside in the Library inspector.
