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).

    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
