Entering Import Mode

It’s easy to bring your photos into iPhoto no matter where they may originate because iPhoto offers four different importing approaches, all of which switch you into import mode automatically. The only time you need to switch into import mode manually is if you switch modes after connecting a camera but before clicking the Import button to start the actual import.

Ways to enter import mode:

  • Connect your digital camera to your Mac’s USB port and turn the camera on. iPhoto need not be running; it launches automatically if necessary.

  • Insert your camera’s memory card into the card reader. iPhoto need not be running; it launches if necessary.

  • From iPhoto’s File menu, choose Import. iPhoto displays an open file dialog from which you can select a file, a folder, or multiple items before clicking Open.

  • From the Finder, drag and drop one or more files or an entire folder of images into the iPhoto window or onto the iPhoto icon in the Dock.

  • Click the Import button that’s always present under the display pane (Figure 2.1).
