How to stop Photos in EL Capitan popping up during ingest
Ting Shen, Student/Intern, Photographer

->> Figured out how to stop the stupid Photos app in El Capitan from popping up every time you plug in your memory cards.

Okay this is what you do.

You need to disable the System Integrity Protection with Terminal from recovery mode to be able to change this file "MassStorageCamera".

1.Restart computer, hold down Command-R before the chime.

2.Once you're in recovery mode, go to the Utilities bar on the menu bar and open up "Terminal".

3.In Terminal, type in the command "csrutil disable"
(with no quotations)

4.Restart computer

5.Once you're restarted normally, go to your Macintosh HD>System>Library>Image Capture.
(note: theres a lot of different Library folders, make sure you went to the right one)

6.Find that "MassStorageCamera" file in the Image Capture folder. You can either rename it or delete it. I suggest renaming it, one day you may want it to be functional again.

The system is going to ask you to type in your admin password.
Now you're set. Your Photos /Image Capture will no longer be able to recognize your CF cards or SD cards. Means it won't pop up anymore. But you can still use it to import and manage your iPhone photos.


Just for safety, repeat 1. 2. and in Terminal, type in "csrutil enable". Now you've re-enabled SIP.
You can all thank me later.


Let me know if you have any questions.

Having Photos open on insertion is really a pain. Thanks for the info. I haven't tried it yet, but intend to give it a shot.

->> You can also disable the photo app opening per device by following the instructions on the page linked below. This method does not require a reboot nor does it require you to turn off System Integrity Protection but you must do it for each device you want to disable the photo app opening when the device is plugged in, i.e.memory card, phone, iPad, etc.

->> Frank - the problem with doing it the way you suggest, is that every time you format a card, which most of us do almost every time we use a card, your Mac reads that card as a new device.

->> I'm praying for a Apple enlightened moment.... they need to fix this.

In the mean time, I finally figured out if I have PM open when I place the card in that I do get the ingest box. If I have PM closed, Photos seems to preempt it opening up. When PM is already open, Photos does open but you can just ignore it or close it and go on about your business in PM.

This free preference pane lets you pick which app auto-starts when you mount a card. I picked PhotoMechanic.

->> Guys this is super simple. When Photos pops open stop closing it right away. Next to the import images is a check box. Uncheck the box and photos will stop opening when you insert your card into your card reader. Sometimes we just get ahead and think closing it is the best option. Hope i've helped out a ton of people with this info.

->> Sorry Louis, Your idea doesn't work for me. OSX seems to think that every newly formatted card is something new and opens Photos.
Sucks.

->> I had this problem a few months ago. This is what worked for me.

Open the Terminal application on your Mac (Applications > Utilities > Terminal.app), copy and paste each line into the terminal, and then hit return on the keyboard:

defaults -currentHost write com.apple.ImageCapture2 HotPlugActionPath ""

defaults -currentHost write com.apple.ImageCapture2 LastHotPlugActionPath ""

That’s it! Restart your computer and the new preference file will keep Photos or any other camera application from auto-launching when a camera is plugged in.

Ting, I would have tried yours but the Mac I have running El Capitan is a work laptop, which is locked down.
