Yes, I understand WHY it's opening. I just don't want it to. I could follow your instructions, but the problem is I don't really want to create a new event when there is only one or two pictures on the phone.it does this to import your iphone camera photos.
1. import the photos into iphoto and when asked to delete or keep originals, delete. This deletes from the phone and pulls them into iphoto.
2. if you still want them on the iphone and that is why you haven't imported and deleted them, or if you have imported them but not deleted them, just create an album in iphoto called iPhone Pics or Camera photos or something. I wouldn't use Camera Roll. Then sync that album. Then you can keep them on your phone, resynced, and delete them from your camera roll. iPhoto won't launch unless there are photos in your camera roll to import.
Make sure you're in the program Image Capture, rather than iPhoto or iTunes. Set the preferences in Image Capture to not open up iPhoto when you connect a camera.I'll try the others advice and search the preferences when I get home (I thought I had looked hard for it, but I may have skipped over a section)
Great info...iPhoto kept opening every time I would connect my iPhone to my PB...I did a search and found your suggestion...it worked perfectly...thank you...You might need to go into Image Capture, and change the preference to not start iPhoto when it is connected.
easiest option by far! works perfectly - and when you go to open iphoto while your iphone is plugged in it recognises it as a camera and gives you the option to import your photos from there.
First off, it is actually deleting them. They've already been imported to the iPhoto library, but you are deleting off of the phone. That's why it says "Delete Originals".If you import the last photos taken, and option to delete them after import, then iPhoto won't open again during a sync until new photos are taken.
When you option to delete the photos from the iPhone, it isn't actually deleting them, just moving them from the Camera Roll to the Library. Later, on your computer, you can categorize them in a folder, and that categorization will sync with the iPhone during a regular iTunes sync.
I don't see what the big problem is, and I do this all the time.
When I want to import my pictures, I'll do it. If I'm just docking to transfer a song or a contact or calendar event, then I don't want iPhoto to open and try to get me to save 2 arbitrary pictures that someone took while playing with my phone.Yes, I understand WHY it's opening. I just don't want it to. I could follow your instructions, but the problem is I don't really want to create a new event when there is only one or two pictures on the phone.
