    Is there a way to make it so that iphoto wont open up everytime i insert my compact flash card into my computer? sometimes I want to just use bridge instead of iphoto to view pics

    I assume Bridge is an app that came with your camera, right? Okay, open up Image Viewer in your Applications folder, go to its Preferences and there should be a drop down list of what app opens when you plug in a camera. Select Bridge from here. :)

    Launch Image Capture
    Under Preferences, camera, select the option for 'do nothing'

    It should look like this;

    I know it's not very intuitive, but there you have it.
