This article explains how to import photos from a GoPro camera to a Mac computer.

Connecting Your GoPro

The first thing to do is plug one end of the USB-C cable into the GoPro and the other into the Mac USB-C port, turn your GoPro on, and you’re ready to go. (You might need an adapter if your Mac doesn't have a USB-C port.

How to Use the Image Capture Tool on a Mac

The tool you’ll be using to import images is called Image Capture. To open that application, follow these steps:

  1. Click the Launchpad icon in the Dock.

  2. Type Image in the search bar.

  3. Click the Image Capture icon.

  4. Wait for the app to open.

  5. Once Image Capture opens, your GoPro camera should be on the list in the left sidebar.

    You shouldn’t have to click the GoPro entry to reveal the contents of the camera’s memory card, but if you find the preview pane empty, click on the GoPro entry, and your images and videos should appear.

  6. Select the images you want to import. To select more than one, click on the first, hold down the Command key (on your keyboard), and select the remaining images.

  7. Select the folder destination for the import from the Import to drop-down.

  8. Click Import.

  9. Allow the import to complete.

When the images import, you’ll find them in the destination folder you chose from the Import to drop-down. You can then close Image Capture and unplug your GoPro from your Mac.
