Tutor for Image Capture on the Mac

In this tutorial, I look at how Image Capture on the Mac imports photos and videos from our camera and how to scan documents with Image Capture. I start out by looking at how you can see all the data about a photo like the focal length, ISO, shutter speed and more. I also look at how to select and import images to different folders and apps. I also see howto set what happens by default when we connect a camera to our Mac. I then switch gears and look at scanning documents using Image Capture, including doing a simplified scan and detailed scans where you can set DPI, do image correction, set file types, among other options. If you are looking for a different way to import your photos or you want to scan documents with your Mac, Tutor for Image Capture can help!
