When you have the thumbnails on the side tap on the small box of little quares to view the photo in full screen mode. The photo will fill the screen but keep the format of the original photo.

Thanks, but when I do this, the toolbars at the top and bottom of the screen are still showing and there are black areas to the left and right of the photo, so it doesn't fill the full screen, even though the photo is in 4:3 format.
When I open the same photo in the stock Photo app that comes with the iPad, it does display in full screen mode. Therefore, I am trying to get iPhoto to display the photos in the same full-screen mode.
