    Hey guys I'm having a small problem with my Mac. Every time I start up Aperture seems to open automatically. I've made sure it's not in the list of start up programs and it only started doing this since yesterday (monday).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Is a camera connected to your Mac? Have you taken a look at Aperture's preferences?

    Hm. Please clarify:

    o Apple menu/System Preferences

    o Click on your user account

    o Click the "Login items" tab's not there at all?

    Maybe you have an iPhone connected or a USB stick inserted?

    If one of those is true then when Aperture starts up it should immediately switch to the import pane.

    Check your image capture settings. It is where you set actions for devices attached to your mac. It sounds like you have an action (i.e. launch aperture) when certain device (i.e. iphone) is attached to your imac.

    Oh wow, how could I be such an idiot. I have this seven port USB hub thing and I had my USB stick inserted and that was obviously the thing causing the problem.

    Haha thanks!
