After you identify your camera to Album by setting your camera and card reader preferences, you can bypass the Get Photos from Camera or Card Reader dialog box when you execute the Get Photos command (unless you click the Restore Default settings button). Your photos are imported directly into the Photo Well.

If you are experiencing difficulty importing photos, try clicking the Restore Default Settings button in the Preferences dialog box to return to the original defaults, which may alleviate the problem.

Here's how to set the preferences for your camera or card reader:

1. Choose EditOPreferences.

The Preferences dialog box appears.

2. Choose Camera or Card Reader from the list on the left side of the dialog box, as shown in Figure 4-10.

3. Choose the name of your camera from the Camera pop-up menu.

If you've used more than one camera, or a camera and card reader, all devices will appear in the list. If you connect a different camera, you need to select it from the list.

4. Specify the location you want to save imported files. Also check any of the options you want.

For more on these options, see "Importing Photos from Cameras and Card Readers," earlier in the chapter.

5. Check the Always Ask to Become Default Application option.

This action ensures that Album automatically launches when WIA-enabled cameras are attached to your computer, and your computer is running Windows XP or ME. Select this option even if you don't have a WIA-enabled camera.

Click OK to close the Preferences dialog box.
