How to stop iPhoto popping up every time I put in SD card?

Every time I insert my SD card, iPhoto pops up. Is there any way to stop this from happening?

You can designate what application you want to launch when a camera is detected.
MBP 15", Apple 27" LED Cinema Display, iPhone6 and 4S, iPad Air, 4GB iPod Nano, Canon 1Ds3 and a couple L's, a lighting strategy and most important, imagination.

Go into Iphoto, Preferences and put "no application" for what should happen when camera is detected. It works the same for just an SD card.

You can also use Image Capture (in your Application folder) to tell which program to launch (or do nothing in your case) when different devices such as an iPhone, P&S camera, SD card etc connect to your Mac.
