View Full Version : iPhoto launches automatically...

Nov 18, 2002, 05:32 PM
Hi there i just wanted to know if anyone knows how to stop iPhoto from launching automatically everytime I connect my SONY digital camera, I don't wanna copy my photos to iPhoto, instead all I wanna do is COPY them to my hardrive for later archiving. On my desktop I can see the drive (SONY camera) mounted and i can get the files that way, but EVERYTIME I'm in the process of openning the drive and extracting the files I want, iPhoto opens and I have no choice but to wait until iPhoto finishes opening so I can quit it and continue with what I was doing.
anyone else having this problem? or know how to fix it?

open up the "image capture" application. go to the preferences. there will be a menu asking what to do when you plug in a camera. set it to "no applicaton". that should do the trick.

I think in Jaguar it can be set somewhere in the System Preferences.

Do this:

Go to Applications, then open Image Capture. In Image Capture's Preferences, you can set this feature.
