6.2. Edit in Full Screen

When you edit in full screen the image is magnified to fit the entire screen and you have the advantage of a bigger image and a black background for less color distraction. You still have access to the thumbnail browser as well as the toolbar in full screen mode, but they stay hidden until you roll the mouse pointer () over the areas so they do not occupy precious screen real estate. Editing in full screen is beneficial when you need as much clarity and detail as possible.
