    Does anyone know of a way to change iPhoto settings so that it is NOT the default program for importing camera photos??

    I use a Canon 20D and I had mistakenly chosen iPhoto to be the program to detect the camera upon plugging it in. Now I cannot use any other programs such as the Canon software to import the photos from my camera because it does not detect the camera; the reason seems to be because iPhoto is "connected" to the camera, barring access to it from any other programs.

    This ruins my workflow because I shoot in RAW and I want to be able to process the RAW files first before importing it to iPhoto.

    Any help, or tips on this would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    There is probably another route - however I've found more success with reinstalling the original software again - I have found it defaults away from iPhoto as a result. Only takes a minute or two.
