Mac Tip #27 - All about Image Capture

Image Capture? Huh? Never heard of it. That's what most people tell me.
Go look in you Applications Folder... then open 'Image Capture'.

If you have a Scanner or Digital Camera, you should definitely try this out.

This is an awesome program... you can do so much with it.

I recommend the first thing you do is look at the Help Menu, so you can see
what exactly Image Capture can do for you.

You need to have a camera or scanner hooked up to really see any of the features. I have my Image Mate 8 in 1 card reader connected below.

I clicked on 'Download Some' and it presents me with this nice browser.

Pull down the 'Automate Task' menu, and you can automate all of these features. Basic.. but VERY HANDY!

You can also click on the View options , and view them as a list for all of this detailed info.

Under the Image Capture->Preferences->Sharing menu, you can setup access for sharing the camera and scanner.
