    Most Photographers use Apple Aperture which is a Powerful photo editing and management. I also use this especially when I have mini Photo Shoots where I can "tether" my cam on to Aperture and have the photos I take go directly to my computer.

    But im sure there is other software that allows you to Tether your camera to your computer i remember that Canon has an app that comes with its P&S cameras even though you cant with them which i thought was pretty pointless.

    Canon has applications for tethered shooting that comes with the DSLRs too, those models that has LiveView can even be maneuvered from the computer itself, which I find rather cool, even if it's not that useful in most situations.

    The above might be true but there are at least a half dozen software packages the allow tethered shooting on a Mac. With Leopard, even "Image capture" has a button labled "Take a Picture" and when you click on it it will trip the shutter on a tethered camera, download and display the photo.

    So, All you need is Mac OS X, a supported camera, and a USB cable. That said, other software has more features.
