8. iPhoto Doesn’t Display File Names Nicely

By default, iPhoto uses file names for the titles of images added to the library. When the contact sheet is open, you can display the file name information below the thumbnails by choosing View > Titles. However, once you double-click a thumbnail to view the image at full size, the title disappears, along with your ability to identify the image by file name.

Sure, the beginning of the title can be seen if you open the Information pane in the bottom-left corner of the window, but long file names are truncated in this pane as well as the Photo Info window (see Figure 8). If I can have the full title transparently overlaid in a slideshow, why not also when viewing and editing images at full size?
