Customize the iPhoto import camera icon
Authored by: wsdr on Jan 12, '04 09:31:22PM

Ok, I went nuts for about 30 minutes trying to get this to work with my Nikon 5700-- I just stick the camera card into an adapter in the PC Card slot on the side of my PowerBook. Then I realized that iPhoto was using the icon on the card-- duh.

So I created a camera icon, pasted it onto the card and bingo!

Customize the iPhoto import camera icon

A great many camers photos are already in OS X.

I got my Canon EOS D60 from System/Library/Image Capture/Devices. For any Type of Camera, Show Package Contents then go to Contents/Resources you will see a list of camera .icns. I opened the .icns in Graphic converter anf saved it as a .tif.

The .tif can be placed in iPhoto as per the hint from Anonymous.

I used the new .tif in iPhoto twice; renamed as camera.tif and camera_small.tif. It works a treat!
