Whenever I connect my iPhone to my Mac (Lion), the Image capture app starts.

How do I stop this?

Image capture doesn't have any preferences.

Found it!

In Image Capture there's a section on the bottom-left. Make sure the iPhone is selected, otherwise the bottom settings will not appear.

Use iPhoto's preferences (General tab, the "Connecting camera opens" setting).

I don't have iPhoto, this is the exact answer I've found tens of times on google, but I don't have iPhoto :( – user13727 Jan 26 '12 at 13:04
Users don't necessarily have iPhoto installed – Ovesh Nov 22 '12 at 2:37
Every new Mac comes with iPhoto installed, and has done for several years, so by now there are very few users without iPhoto. – Mike Scott Nov 22 '12 at 6:52
Not true anymore. – Legoless Oct 21 '14 at 7:13
