iPhoto Can Change Your Aperture Preference
by Derrick Story
I had the weirdest thing start happening recently: every time I connected a camera or card reader, Canon's CameraWindow would lanuch. It was driving me crazy. I thought Aperture controlled this function.
Well, the culprit was iPhoto '08. It had somehow picked up Canon's CameraWindow as the application to launch when my card reader was attached. And the darndest part of it was that iPhoto changed my Aperture preference too. Whoa, dude!
So I changed the setting in iPhoto '08, double-checked the preference in Aperture, and moved on. So, if you've just installed iPhoto '08, keep an eye out for this one.
|I ran into this same issue. Turns out its a system-wide preference that you can set from a couple different places. Check out Image Capture, and go to Preferences. It's controllable from there.|
|Yes, exactly. My point was that when I installed iPhoto '08, it somehow picked up CameraWindow and made the change for me :)|

Yeah, I guess a new person could become confused over it, but it's a logical thing (sort of). It's a question of how the computer handles a file type, not a program. You can set it in different programs that handle those files (Aperture, iPhoto, Image Capture, et al) but in reality you're not specifying with the program how a file type is handled, you're specifying with the computer how it's resolved.
|Strange, iPhoto '08 doesn't give me "Aperture" as a choice in the iPhoto 08 preference drop-down. It only offers Image Capture, iPhoto and Nothing. Aperture (latest version) is definately installed and active.|
