Instantly Viewing Pictures After Taking Them with Image Capture?


Does anyone know how I can use Image Capture to instantly display images after I shoot them with my DSLR (Nikon D40)? My camera is in PTP mode and is recognized by Image Capture, so that's not a problem. What I can't figure out is if there's a way to trigger the downloading of the image as soon as I take it on the camera--by pressing the trigger and not, for example, by executing an Automator workflow. Thanks!


I fixed the problem. Now it is downloading photos over USB super fast with no problems.
I hope these steps will help other people who have the same problem.
I did the following steps from the previous post's Apple link:
Once you determine that your computer has a USB 2.0 connection, use the following steps to troubleshoot the connection between the device and the computer. Test after each step:
Update to the latest version of iTunes.
Plug the device directly into a high-power USB 2.0 port on the computer. If possible, use a USB port on the back of the computer.Avoid plugging the device into a keyboard, display, or standalone hub. The USB ports on these accessories may be low-power or only offer USB 1.x connections.
If you are using an accessory, remove the device from the dock and connect it to the computer using only the Apple USB to Dock Connector cable.If you have access to additional Apple USB to Dock Connector cables, try testing with another if the first one doesn't work.
Restart your computer and device. To restart your device:Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the Sleep/Wake button to turn it back on.
Disconnect all USB devices from your computer, except for your keyboard and mouse. Then reconnect the iOS device. If the issue is resolved, reconnect other USB devices, testing after each connection.
Additional steps I took:
* Quit every app that was running on the iPad, including some that might try to use the MIDI features over the USB connection.
