Do you own an iPhone? Are you annoyed by the fact every time you sync your iPhone with your Mac, iPhoto pops up and tries to download your iPhone photos, even if you downloaded them already? I’ve been suffering with that for a while and finally snapped. After ranting about it, I decided to look high and low for a fix. Sure enough, this is a known, errrrr, problem for the Mac, iPhoto and the iPhone. Strangely enough, there is no preferences fix for the issue. You can even let iPhoto grab your latest photos but the next time you sync, even though you have no new snapshots, iPhoto still launches and annoys.
There is a fix. The fellas over at 37 signals came up with this nifty bit of Applescript that prohibits the iPhone from automatically opening iPhoto; however, your digital camera still works. It takes a little copy, a dash of paste, and a splash of common sense but the problem is fixed. Here are the instructions. Enjoy.
