    I often seem to unplug and plug in my iPhone several times a day, and it's a bit annoying that iTunes keeps opening each time.

    Is there any way to stop this permanently? So that I have to open iTunes myself if I want to sync it.

    Yeah, disable automatic sync. What I want to know is how to disable iPhoto from opening... it opens and wants to import the same photos from my iPhone everytime I plug it in... drives me crazy

    Thank you! :)

    Looks like I can help you back.

    Start up iPhoto, Preferences, General, "Connecting camera opens" and set that to "No application".

    Yeah, that will work. What I was going for is iPhoto wouldnt open when I plug in my iPhone, but would open when I plug in my Sony digicam. Sorry, i didnt clarify that.

    I know this is an old post but the solution is now under the Preferences of Image Capture in Applications.

    Hmmm? I couldn't find the option to do so in iPhoto - maybe in an earlier version? Yes, got it now... my MBP is using iPhoto '06... my MP is using iPhoto '08. Option is not available in version '06
