Picking Photos Off a Camera with iPhoto


Helpless Mac Newbie
When I plug my digital camera in, it opens iPhoto and asks me if I want to import all my photos. I dont want to do that. I want to pick and choose. Is this possible?

a small tool that lets you view all the images and videos on your camera as thumbnails, select any amount, and import them to a folder of your choice. it also has a nice 3D cube effect for every image it imports :D
And in image capture; under Prefrences, you can tell it what you want the computer to do when you plug the camera in.


Image capture will set the default, but even if iPhoto is the default you can still go to finder and open the camera as an external drive. Then you can copy them to (say) the desktop and drag them onto the iPhoto window to import.
