Chapter 2. Importing and Managing Photos > Importing from a Camera

Importing from a Camera

If you use a digital camera, it’s easiest to import photos directly from the camera.

To import from a digital camera:

1.
Connect your camera to your Mac using the USB cable included with the camera.

2.
Turn on the camera. Make sure the camera is set to view pictures.

iPhoto automatically launches and switches into import mode (Figure 2.4).

Figure 2.4. iPhoto launches and switches into import mode automatically when you connect your camera. It also identifies your camera and tells you how many images it contains. To start the import, click the Import button on the right side of the import pane.


3.
To have iPhoto erase the contents of your camera after importing the photos, click “Erase camera contents after transfer.”

4.
Click the Import button.

iPhoto starts importing the photos, showing thumbnails and a progress bar. If you’ve made a mistake, click Stop to stop the import (Figure 2.5). When the import finishes, the photos appear in the display pane.

Figure 2.5. While iPhoto imports photos, it displays a thumbnail of the image being downloaded and displays a progress bar. To stop the process before it completes, click the Stop button.
