    every time i put my iphone on it's stand iphoto decides that I don't want to be looking at the image I'm viewing but staring at a blank window for 5 minutes (6 year old mac) as it searches for photos on the iphone.

    there doesn't seem to be a way that I can see of telling iphoto to stop assuming I want to do this 20 times a day!!!!

    If you are reading this steve will you poke yourself in the eye for me.

    I believe that if you go into Image Capture when your iphone is connected you can select it to not open iPhoto.

    I am unaware if this changes the default for every camera however personally I find it quite annoying when something pops up when I insert something so I'm not fussed if it does in fact stop iPhoto from opening all the time!

    ah! but no. My problem is that when I'm already in iphoto which I use a lot, it goes into it's own private activity with the iphone every time I inadvertently put the iphone on it's charging stand after a call.

    I may have to go back to Iview (or expression as it's now known)

    I winder what other alternatives there are?

    Ah sorry,

    I completely get you now! Sorry for the confusion and sadly no, I don't think there is a solution!

    Not meant to be argumentative, but perhaps it's time to upgrade the mac? Even a used 4 year old imac would perform better than this.
