    Try this:

    • To choose the application that opens:
    • Make sure no cameras are connected to your computer.
    • Open Image Capture (in your Applications folder).
    • Choose Image Capture > Preferences.
    • Click General at the top of the Preferences window and choose an application from the pop-up menu.

    Great Help

    Thanks for the info. I was actually a Product Specialist or Tier 2 agent for Apple and was unaware of how to resolve this issue. Awesome and thanks again.
    iPhoto loading every time that I pulled in my iPhone was driving me insane.

    I hated plugging in my iPhone for just that reason. Will start charging on my MacBook more often now that iPhone will not interfere with other work.

    Great solution!

    Thanks!
