Making camera mount on desktop

Hello,

When I attach my digital camera, it automatically opens up iPhoto. Is there any way I can mount it on the desktop to selectively move pictures to different places rather than have to do it through iPhoto?

Thanks

Yes, if you go to your applications folder and go to Image Capture and then go to Preferences, You can choose another application to open rather than iPhoto - I use Adobe Bridge and have configured it to import my RAW photos and convert the to DNG automatically. Very neat.

Open up Applications/Image Capture, and set the preference there. But
realize that not all cameras mount to the desktop. It has to do with
whether or not it appears as a USB or FireWire Mass Storage device to
your computer or not.

I think this is true for the Canon DSLRs. It’s certainly the case for
my EOS400D, but it will magically appear in iPhoto and Aperture at the
right time, yet not in the Finder at all.

Thanks all, and agreed Heather, mines a Canon G5 and no way will it mount.

Walter, Nathan, Image Capture has done the job.
