I am a real newby and have only had my D7000 for 3 days so be gentle with me.
My question is when viewing a photo that you have taken how do I get rid of all the info at the bottom, all I want to view is the Photo. I have been through the user manual dozens of times and I cant find it anywhere.
although I am not absolutely sure what you are trying to do, if you click the up or down on the clickwheel while viewing your pictures, it will give you different modes. I believe one is with nothing at the bottom. thanks rob
Welcome to the Nikonians and congratulations on buying the D7000.
The information you want begins on page 163 of the manual. That describes the display options and their menus.
You may want to purchase a second information source. My personal favorite is Thom Hogan's D7000 Field Guide. That has a ton of information about the D7000 and some general camera information, if you're new to DSLRs. I have the CD version and refer to it all the time.

I'm all for reading the manual, but unless you know Nikon's label/name for it, you have no idea what and where to look for it.
Myself, I have tried to find something in the manuals for my D7k (as well as D60), and spent hours trying to find it, only to surrender to the power of internet forums.
Downloading the .pdf versions of the manuals sometimes helps as I can search for certain words, but sometimes what one needs is called such an archaic name that you would never find it save for blind luck.
I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!
I'm certainly guilty of not reading the manual carefully - I do a quick scan and start working through menus. The D7000 and any onther "next generation" camera seem to make significant changes in earlier functions, so reading the manual is important. For example, the need for long exposure noise reduction is significantly different on the D7000 compared to earlier models. And new systems - like AF - demand an investment.
And Rob - you're not alone. Learning to speak Nikonese can be a challenge - especially with manuals. Terminology and layouts are not always intuitive. words with multiple uses or meaning can be difficult - like Auto Focus or Display. The recommended settings worksheet here at Nikonians and the guides from Thom Hogan and others can help.
I do keep a PDF copy of the manual on my iPad, iPhone, and laptop so I can reference it in the field.
I'm not sure if this will help, but there are always 2 lines of info below the photo on the LCD screen (monitor). What you see is the full photo with the 2 lines showing basic info about the photo. I don't believe you can remove that info. This info is described at the bottom of page 165 in the user manual, items numbered 6 through 12. Additional info about the photo can be displayed by using the multi-selector dial. You can select what info you want to view using the Display Mode option on the Playback Menu. Paul
