Hey all. I'm new to Mac and am trying to import pictures from a digital camera onto the computer. When I plug it in, it recognizes the Camera but only gives me the option to import all 996 items on the camera. Obviously I do not want all of these items. My question is: how do I adjust iPhoto so that I can select which items I want to import from the camera?
Thanks in advance.

Instead open Image Capture from your Utilities folder. It has a feature where you can pick and choose the pix to download. While you are in there, open Preferences and set it so that Image Capture is the application that opens when you connect the camera, instead of iPhoto.
iPhoto is not very smart in this aspect, unfortunately.

Alternatively, you can use a memory card reader to mount the card as a volume right on the desktop. You can then just drag and drop the files you want. Unless your camera is genuinely a USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device, a separate Hi-Speed card reader will be much faster. You may have to use Image Capture to keep the Mac from Microsoftianly take control of the memory card.
