    Snow Leopard doesn't have full screen functions, but I guess iPhoto '11 might have that capability programmed into the program itself...

     

    But does this article help?

    Don't need to upgrade. Try resetting your PRAM:

     

    PRAM RESET

    Zap the PRAM

     

    • Shut down the computer.
    • Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    • Turn on the computer.
    • Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    • Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    • Release the keys.

    What happens when you click the green button on the upper left corner of the iTunes tool bar?

    Sorry I meant to say, "What happens when you click the green button on the upper left corner of the iPhoto tool bar" and not iTunes.

     

    When it is minimized, you should be able to resize the window by clicking and holding on the hash marks at the bottom right hand corner and then dragging it to the desired size.

    To exit Full screen mode in iPhoto,  move the cursor to the bottom of the screen and a "toolbar" will appear.

    Click the "x" icon on the far right.

    I found this post while looking for a way to toggle full screen on and off as well, as I don't have that option in the lower left corner of my iPhoto 11 screen as shown in a really great iPhoto 11 tutorial I downloaded last night from the Mac Apps store ("Tutor for iPhoto 11" - $4.99)   I just found where the switch is in my iPhoto 11, and wanted to share with others.  On my screen it is two diagonal arrows in the upper right corner of the screen.  Click it once and iPhoto goes to full screen.  You then have to push your cursor up into the top of the screen for the white menu bar to re-appear, and when it does, you can click the two diagonal arrows again to turn full-screen off.  I don't know why this on/off option appears in the upper right corner on my program, when it appears in the bottom left corner of most everyone else's...but there you are.

    I have tried everything you have suggested with no luck.  No x in the bottom.  No menu bar in the upper right.  Esc doesn't work.  Any ideas?  I have now invested about 2 hours trying to get out of full screen.
