To get your Q10 to connect via BlackBerry Link you need to go into Settings on the Q10 > Storage and Access > and change the USB Connection to Connect to Mac. It's set to Windows by default. Once this happens and your Mac can connect to the phone  you can go into your Q10 via BB Link to select pictures. Then its' just a matter of drag/drop onto the Computer tab at the bottom of BB Link.


I have an album on my iMac's iPhoto that is called "BlackBerry Camera 3342C606" that contains all the camera pics I took with my Q10 that I *think* was created when I did a backup of my Q10. I just don't think there is a way yet to have iPhoto connect when you plug in your Q10 like it does with a regular camera.
