Working in Browser Mode in Full Screen View

You can set Full Screen view to switch between Viewer mode and Browser mode. Browser mode displays thumbnail images in a grid over a black background with minimal color interference. As in the Browser in the main Aperture workspace, the search field and Filter HUD are accessible for filtering images. When Full Screen view is set to Browser mode, the toolbar remains accessible at the top of the screen but the filmstrip disappears.
