Maximise screen real estate in iPhoto Apps
When going through images with the ribbon at the top in iPhoto, simply press the w key -- it will get rid of the menu bar and the dock, and you can maximise iPhoto fully. This can also be done in fullscreen mode.

[robg adds: Interestingly, if you fully maximize the window, then press w again, you'll have an iPhoto window that's stuck under your menu bar, at least until you press w again and move it.]

Maximise screen real estate in iPhoto

Tested and confirmed in iPhoto 6.0.4 ... only works in Edit view, but, if you click "Done", iPhoto's main window remains in this menu-less mode. You can maximize it to fill all available screen area.

BTW, when you've hit w again to re-enable the menu bar, you can go to the Window menu and choose Zoom to resize the window again so that it's not partially hidden under the menu bar.

Rob... you can also hide the dock, at least on a temporary basis. Go to Apple->Dock, the first option either turns on hiding or turns it off.

I think it is a function that is used in the full screen mode (the button down left), that is unintentional active in edit mode.

If you really want to maixmize realestate, why not just use full screen mode for all your editing needs?

Just go to Preferences and select "Edit Using Full Screen Mode".

Tip: you can double click a picture to enter edit/full screen mode, and double click it to exit.

This works in all edit modes (Integrate, Separate Window and Full Screen Mode). Clearly it was supposed to work for FSM but the software only checks for editmode=true.
