I use MacOS photos for my primary DAM for my photos, and when I’m on my iMac, I’m probably in the middle of culling, rating and/or editing photos from my latest photo shoot.
So when I plug in my iPhone or iPad to charge or backup & sync via the finder, the photos app will automatically switch to the import photos from iPhone or iPad pane, losing my place in the album I am currently working on.
It it possible to turn off this behavior? I know about the “not open photos for this device” checkbox, it is unchecked and it does not help. I do not see anything relevant in preferences.
I’m not afraid of the terminal, so if there is any “defaults write …” commands I could do, please let me know,
If it matters, I’m on Monterey.
