Image Capture does not display thumbnail preview when iPhone is connected to Mac.


  • I upgraded to OSX Lion.
  • When I plug my iPhone 4 into the USB cable, Image Capture starts (my preferred import method).
  • The window does not display thumbnail previews, just generic .jpeg icons.
  • Restarting the Mac fixes the condition... until you remove/eject the iPhone.
  • When you plug it back in, the generic icons reappear.


I did not have this problem with Snow Leopard.

What is there about the startup sequence that allows the preview once, then drops it?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
