iPhoto

[ #16633 ]

OK, I know iPhoto sucks, especially in that it is the most non-scalable image cataloging application ever. But oh, it sucks in other ways too. And my problem today is this: is there a way to tell iPhoto to NOT automatically import images? I pop in a card, and iPhoto is running, and it just starts stupidly importing everything. There's only one image I want, and I know what it is, and I want iPhoto to stop being ridiculously dumb.

    iPhoto
    Image Capture
    No application
    Other
