    Friends,

    Within the last couple of weeks, my Mac has developed a new quirk. When I restart or log in, iPhoto launches. I have already checked the System Preferences; when I click on Account, then Login Items, iPhoto is not listed. When I click on the iPhoto icon in my Dock, "Open at Login" is not selected. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this issue?


    Warm regards,

    Dave

    you probably have your memory card plugged in, and your preferences are set to automatically open iPhoto when its detected.

    Double check Preferences > User Accounts > Login Items

    just make sure it's not in there

    Friends,

    Thank you very much for your advice so far. After reading your suggestions, I watched more closely. It looks like iPhoto wants to import some items from my external hard drive. How can I tell iPhoto to disregard that drive?

    Again, thank you very much for your help.

    Warm regards,

    Dave

    I would try to move those items into another (new) folder.

    try opening preferences, click on cds/dvds then the 4th down, for pictures, set the drop box to "Ignore"
