Is there a way to call it up selectively only when you want to download photos? It's such a pain every time to have to wait for it to load then cancel it before you can go on.

Do you have a Mac? You can set that up in the Image Capture utility. In the preferences, choose "No application" when iPhone mounts.
I'm sure there's something similar if you have a PC, but I don't do windowze very well.

i have the same annoyance with iphoto how do i set it not to open when i sync
Do a search for "Image capture" app and launch it.

Go to the Image Capture's preferences. There, choose "no application" for "when a camera is connected" . Yours is presently set to "iPhoto" instead.

Oh goody, I can start helping again!

To stop that annoyance on a Windows PC:

1.) Open My Computer.

2.) Right-click Apple iPhone and choose "Properties."

3.) Click the Events tab.

4.) Check the "Take no action" radio button.

5.) Click OK.

Done! You will no longer be bugged about what to do with photos every time you connect your iPhone.

This in no way prevents you from getting photos off of the iPhone. Just right-click Apple iPhone and choose "Get pictures." Alternately you can double-click Apple iPhone to drag and drop the photos wherever you like.

I've looked under "My computer" Programs and I have iTunes, Apple Software Update and Ipod. No sign of iPhone in Program list or under any of these in a subfolder either.

Fiona, I just manually disable the function before I open iTunes. There is a way to go into your sys config and disable it without unistalling, but you'll have to research it on the Adobe forums. I read how to do it once, but it was over my head. I just disable!

If you are on a Windows PC you should open My Computer, not Programs. My Computer will show you Drive C:. Drive D:, etc.

It is there that you will see "Apple iPhone."

If you can't get to that you can go to Start-->Control Panel-->Scanners and Cameras and you will see Apple iPhone there.


Good luck,
Mike

I fpound theiPhone under My compute4r; followed the steps you gave; chose "take no action" hit "apply". Looks good; should work. BUT, sure enough it STILL loaded when I connected to iTunes! Any more ideas?
