    I no longer use iPhoto for photo cataloging, and I cannot figure out how to get iPhoto to stop trying to import photos as soon as I plug in my card reader. I use Lightroom instead, and would like iPhoto to not try to import when it detects a device. I've searched through the Preferences menu and other places but could not figure it out. ???

    image capture-->preferences-->when a camera is connected-->do nothing

    pretty simple.

    Thank you for the help. I was trying to change it from within iPhoto, not from Image Capture. A-ha.

    iPhoto > Preferences > General, at the bottom, connecting camera opens.
    Select from iPhoto, image capture or no application.
