    Use ImageCapture instead of iPhoto.
    It is in your Applications folder.

    iPhoto probably launches automatically when you plug in your camera, so you will have to open Image Capture now and, even if it tells you there is no camera to be found in its window, go into Image Capture's Preferences, and under the General tab, you'll see where you can set the application of your choice for the download of your photos.

    I really like Canon's freebie that came with my XT so you might want to install it if you haven't already. The way I have set up my iMac when I plug in my CF card in the media card reader is that Canon's CameraWindow will launch and do the download for me and then Canon's ImageBrowser then launches to let me see in a slideshow my images so I can eliminate right from the start the bad ones.

    Hope this helps.

    I've read that Canon's don't show up as a mounted drive when you plug it in, is everyone here experiencing that? I have a Canon SD 600 (or something like that), and it doesn't do this. I wish it would so I could selectively download and delete pics off the camera.

    Also, when I use ImageCapture, in the drop down to pick where you would like to download your photos, the list is empty. When I run it, they end up in the Pictures folder. Anyone know what's going on, or how to fix this so I can choose?

    Specs:
    2 iMacs 17+20" 2.16GHz 2GB RAM 500MB HDD 256MB Graphic card. 60Gig 5th gen iPod with Video
    If you start up Image capture you then see this box


    If you click on the Download to you should get an option called Other

    You can then tell IC where you want your shots

    If you click on options you get this pane



    You can select the option with the arrow

    IC then deletes the downloaded Shots from the camera.

    Other than that I can't be of much help .

    Yes, I am experiencing the non-mounting of the camera. Is there a way around this? I like plugging in my camera and just taking the photos off the camera as if the camera was just another USB key or hard drive.

    I have a Canon camera as well. I can't seem to find this option in any of the programs or system preferences.

    Hopefully someone has a way around this.
