Image Capture can be set up to download images from the user's digital camera or mobile device to the hard drive automatically, as soon as the device is plugged in. Alternatively, the application can be launched directly and the downloading be done by the user's own individual selections. Image Capture also supports scanners.
Image Capture also provides a significant number of options and automated tasks. For example, the user can set a size at which the imported pictures are to be saved, or a web page can be created automatically.
