I can't seem to the get the Canon utilities camera window to acknowledge a target folder on my desktop for pictures. It wants to open Aperture and I don't want the pics to go there. I did go into preferences and made a decktop target folder. thanks!!

Have you tried to just open the memory card of your camera as a drive and then copy and past the pictures where you want them?

I havnt done this in a while on a mac, but usually when you plug in you camera, it drops a folder on your desktop, where the memory of your camera is mounted as a drive. From there you should just be able to access the pictures directly.

+agreed... I wouldn't mess with the Canon software, just use finder or the built in add to library stuff in Aperture. – Robert S Ciaccio Nov 29 '10 at 22:41

I would use Image Capture instead of the Canon utilities.
