I picked up a 27" iMac a few months back after being a Windows guy for ages, and I'm really liking the switch. One of the things I can't get past however is how over-intuitive OSX tries to be when importing pictures from my digital camera.
In Windows, I could plug it in and it would simply import all the pics into a folder and give me the option to erase them when finished. That's all I need, and I have ~10 years of digital pics organized that way. My Mac, however, creates albums, opens preview, and gives me all sorts of iPhoto options, and I really don't want to use it.
Is there a utility out there that will simply import pictures from a connected camera without going all out the way iPhoto does? Any insight would be very much appreciated.

I use image capture most of the time for importing photos. Search for it in spotlight and it should be there.How do you like them Apples?

In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

With your camera plugged in, open up Image Capture. Select your camera from the left hand side and in the bottom of the window, you should see a drop down labeled "Connecting this camera opens:". Change that to your program of choice and voila.
If you do not see that option in the bottom left hand corner, click the little box with the arrow in the bottom left hand corner.
