Chapter 2. Importing and Managing Photos > Importing from a Card Reader

Importing from a Card Reader

Importing images via a memory card reader works almost exactly like importing from a digital camera.

To import from a card reader:

1.
Connect your card reader to your Mac using the card reader’s USB cable.

2.
Insert your memory card.

iPhoto automatically launches and switches into import mode (Figure 2.6).

Figure 2.6. When you insert a memory card, iPhoto launches and switches into import mode. It also identifies your card reader and tells you how many images it currently contains. To start the import process, click the Import button.


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

4.
Click the Import button.

iPhoto starts importing the photos, showing thumbnails and a progress bar. Click Stop to halt a mistaken import.

5.
To remove the memory card from the card reader, drag the card’s disk icon to the Eject icon in the Dock (it replaces the Trash icon when you have a memory card or disk selected), and then eject the card from the card reader (Figure 2.7).

Figure 2.7. To remove a memory card from your card reader after importing, first drag the memory card’s icon on the desktop to the Eject icon in the Dock, and only then eject the memory card from the card reader.
