Stop Apple Photos from auto launching

Stop Apple Photos from auto launching

Like many other people that use OS X, I have been annoyed by the auto launching of Apple Photos since the recent update.  I use Lightroom to manage my photos, and hate having to close down Apple Photos each time I insert a SD card into my computer.  I found a great workaround here.

Simply open a terminal and enter:

defaults -currentHost write com.apple.ImageCapture disableHotPlug -bool YES

Problem solved.
