Prevent iPhoto opening when iPad/iPodTouch/iPhone connected

When I connect my iPad or other iOS device to my MacBook, the reason is almost exclusively to to charge it.
But iPhoto persists in opening -- quite unnecessarily other than to annoy me.
Luckily this is easy to stop.
Just plug in your iOS device, open Image Capture from your Apps folder.
At the bottom left of the Image Capture window, you will see "Connecting this iPad opens" followed by a drop-down of choices. It's probably set to iPhoto.
Just change this to No Application, close Image Capture and you won't have to worry about iPhoto taking over your Mac screen when you connect your iOS device.
More details here.
