    Using "Preview" to import pictures question
    I use preview to import pictures from my devices, however when selected images are importing to a folder preview also opens the images for viewing.

    I actually don't want it to do this but cannot see a way to stop it, if I close the window it simply re-opens continuing from where it is at that moment with the rest of the import.

    Can I disable this?

    Tool for the job - try using Image Capture instead of Preview.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Image Capture works for all those and more.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
