Being able to view your images against an uncluttered background or covering the full screen is a real advantage. This tutorial shows you how to use Lights Out, Lights Dim and how to expand your images full screen. There are three screen views and I’ll show you how to toggle through them so you can get you image to span the screen with nothing in the way. You’ll also learn some handy shortcuts for Grid View and Loupe View.

hi Valerie, your videos on LR are the best !! quick question about this video. when you are in full screen mode , is there a way to scroll through all the thumbnails in the filmstrip (or the thumbnails that were in the main work area ). thanks, Bob
Hi Bob, you can hit the right or left arrow when in full screen mode and it will proceed to the next/previous image. If you want to see the film strip, use Ctrl + Shift + F to get “full screen hide panels.” This hides the side panels but the image won’t be quite as big as the regular full screen view.
