How to change default action when inserting SD card in iMac

Hi

How do I change the default action when inserting an SD card on an iMac? I currently insert the SD card and it brings up iPhoto but would like it to bring up Picasa automatically. (at the minimum have it not launch iPhoto - this is for parents)

Various searches have pointed me in the CD/DVD system prefs but this is only for CD/DVD not SD cards - can't seem to find it... any suggestions is appreciated!

iPhoto -> Preferences -> Connecting Camera Opens:

I believe that should work.

Thanks, that worked! (had to create an iphoto library as i don't use iphoto) Is there any way to be able to get a dialogue box to prompt for Picasa to open when an SD card is inserted?

thanks figured it out there is a similar setting within Picasa itself. odd how it's not from within the system preferences menu, rather in the individual application preferences.
