How can I conveniently see my pictures full-sized? The picture previewer has a button labeled "Front" that lets you keep the picture window on top of all other windows.  Instead of closing and re-opening the previewer for each picture in your collection, you can keep this window open while changing the selected item in the specimen list.  In this way you can poke through your picture collection seeing them full-sized.
Press the picture previewer button to open a separate window with full-sized photos. ...............................................
Toggle the Front / Back buttons to keep this picture previewer on top of all other windows.
By changing the selected item in the specimen list, the already opened picture previewer will automatically stay synchronized with your current selection.

Most of today's high-resolution monitors are suited for this type of operation; however older monitors that only operate at 800 x 600 resolution will probably not find this operation very satisfying.
