    I use Image Capture with my digital cameras. After I import photos onto my computer (I get it to save them to the Desktop), Image Capture automatically opens a new Finder window showing the files. I don't like this, it's especially useless and annoying as I like my new photos to go straight to the Desktop, I don't need a Finder window popping up to show me them again. Anybody know how to stop Image Capture from doing this?

    Unfortunately the standard fix doesn't work with some devices like older iPodTouches and digital cameras like the Casio I have. Image Capture launches but then shows Zero (0) devices listed and no button to click. Works fine with newer iPodTouches but not with older ones. So I'm still looking for a solution to stop Image Capture from launching.
