    Is there something better than iphoto? What I really am asking is, is there a better way to upload your photos from your camera to the computer without using iphoto? I'm not a huge fan of iphoto, I think it makes my pictures less organized than I would like.

    If you're just looking to upload photos, Image Capture (it's in your Applications folder) is great. Look in its preferences (IIRC) to make it the default app when you connect your camera.

    You can check out the Adobe Lightroom Beta . I have messed around with it a bit and really like it. Its like aperture, but free (for now because its beta) and supposedly runs a whole lot smoother.

    So you're recommending a professional RAW workflow management tool for getting images off your digi?

    Just use image capture.

    GraphicConverter is ideal for fetching your pix from your camera and then letting you browse what you just downloaded. Less BigBrotherly intrusive than iPhoto (i.e., it doesn't act like it knows better than you do what to do with your images).

    I have tried Lightroom and it seems very complicated, especially for someone who is just looking to import photos easily. Image Capture is probably the best for this.
