Changing the Display Pane's Layout

One of iPhoto's slickest features is the slider that enables you to change the size of the thumbnails, but you can do other things to change the way the display pane looks.

To change the display pane layout:

  • Move the size slider (or click in the desired location) to adjust the size of the thumbnails from a single image (which automatically hides titles and keywords) at the largest (Figure 3.3) all the way down to as many photos as fit in the window at postage stamp size (Figure 3.4).

    Figure 3.4 To view as many thumbnails as possible, move the size slider all the way to the left or press the 0 (zero) key.

  • To show or hide titles, ratings, keywords, and film rolls (Figure 3.5) (film rolls only when in the Library album), choose the desired item from the View menu.

  • To add or remove a sharing tool from the toolbar, choose the item from the Show in Toolbar menu in the View menu (Figure 3.6).
