Since I always re-size my images (or would like to) prior to importing them into iPhoto, I'd like the connected camera to simply appear as a drive. I'd copy the photos off, re-size them, and then import them into iPhoto. Is there a preference to "do nothing" when the camera is connected, except as I mentioned, to have it appear as a drive? FWIW, it's an HP PhotoSmart M305. Thanks.

Thank you very much. I had forgotten (or rather, never known) that Image Capture was a standalone app. That took care of it.

just my .02
have a good day

You make a very good point, as I have also regretted re-sizing some images after the fact. I don't think I'd be as concerned if it weren't for the fact that I may not yet fully understand iPhoto and how it works once photos are imported. Re-sizing, and even re-naming already imported images seems to be much more of a challenge than it should be. So, that's really the reason for my order of operations.

Thats something I've been wanting to know for a while as iPhoto keeps loading and then stalls when I connect my camera.

I've always found that importing images manually easier and doesn't take any longer to do
