Use multiple full-screen edit modes in iPhoto Apps
I was playing around with my PowerBook connected to a TV. I had it setup as an extended desktop, and was viewing some photos in iPhoto. I was doing some full screen editing on the TV. Since my TV is a lower resolution than is my PowerBook, I could still see part of the iPhoto window on my PowerBook's screen.

So I dragged that window fully back to my PowerBook screen. This had no effect on the full screen image on the TV. I was then able to go into full screen editing mode on the PowerBook screen as well. I was now looking at two distinct full-screen editors.

Since you can view multiple images at once with iPhoto, there may not be such a big need for this. Yet it may be useful for those that have smaller screen real estate.

Use multiple full-screen edit modes in iPhoto

Ah... I see! It took me a while to work out what this hint actually means, but it sounded interesting and I finally got it to work today.

The way I would phrase it is: iPhoto opens a full-screen editing window on whichever screen the majority of the main iPhoto window is when you click the full-screen icon. So, to get two full-screen editors, move iPhoto mostly (but not totally) onto one screen, click the icon, then move the window onto the other screen and click again. Et voila!
