When I try to import from my Canon EOS 6D camera to Lightroom, the Canon EOS software intervenes and wants to take over. I have to quit that software, go to Lightroom, and import from there. This happens whether I use the USB cable or a reader. I'm new to Lightroom. When I used Apple Aperture, the import was immediate. Aperture opened and started the process as soon as I connected the camera to my computer. Any idea what's happening here and how I can fix it?
Do you need the Canon software? Uninstalling it would solve the problem. If it's anything like the Nikon software, it's not worth keeping ...
On Windows, you could possibly fix it by changing the file association for canon files, don't know how that's done on a Mac, though.
Thanks. I don't know if I need the Canon software, but I will try to find out. That seems like a good way to go.
On second thoughts, I dont think changing the file association will fix it. But maybe there's a way to disable programs on a Mac?
In any case, proprietary raw converters tend to be not very good, and I'm pretty sure that Lightroom is way better than the Canon software.
