Importing Photos in iPhoto    
iPhoto is a wonderful application for managing your digital photos. If you have a digital camera you should be using iPhoto. First off after you have taken your photos, you’ll need to connect either your camera or the media card that is inside of your camera to your computer. Your camera should have come with a USB cable. If you don’t know what a USB cable looks like please refer to the glossary section of the freemaclessons.com website. If you have a media card reader, either an external one or a built in one on your printer or monitor, go ahead and insert the media card to get started. One side note, if you are connecting your camera directly to the computer via USB, you’ll most likely need to turn on your camera after it is connected for the computer to see it. After you have inserted the media card, iPhoto is going to automatically open. The first time you do this, you will be asked if you want to always use iPhoto when you insert your media card. I do, so I will say yes. Now that iPhoto is open and seeing your card it will scan your photos and ask if you want to import them. Go ahead and say import. When it’s finished importing your photos will be in the Library.
