    iPhoto has been pissing me off for weeks and I've had enough.

    Everytime I plug in my camera, or card reader, or damn near anything that possibly could contain an image file, iPhoto pops up and loads for a few seconds and won't close until it is finished loading. I'm sick of it. I use iPhoto for almost nothing, except maybe to occasionally view images in a slideshow or whatever.

    Keeping in mind that I am very new to Mac OS X (Tiger installed if it matters), can someone please tell me how I can stop iPhoto from loading each time I perform one of the said actions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Use Image Capture (in your Applications Folder) to alter the default action when you plug in a device.

    It's in the General Image Capture preferences.

    Edit to add: You can also use the CD&DVD preferences pane in System Preferences.

    Edit: ignore the above edit. That's for photo CDs.

    Thanks both of you, I haven't tried this yet, but obviously it will work so thanks!

    P.S. When replying to a noobie like myself when a noobie question like this has been asked, it'd be great if things like "Easy." and "Duh." (for example) were not used. It's not like I was quizzing you. lol, I knew it would be easy, I just could not find it for the life of me.

    Anyways, thanks again guys!

    lol, robbie. I wasn't trying to "lay down rules", just a suggestion on how to make someone who already feels dumb for having to ask something so obvious not feel any dumber, lol, that's all.

    I can understand not wanting 'duh' to be used but I can't see a problem with 'Easy' since it's more likely to be there to reassure you that what you want to do isn't difficult than being derogatory.

    Easy = good
    Hard = bad
    Spine-chillingly-difficult = more bad

    Wow, you have really soft skin. I will say no more than that. You might just burst into a puddle of tears. ;)

    lol, I really don't. I'm just tired from work and otherwise can obviously see that no one shares my opinion.

    I only cry at funerals, except this guy's. :D
