For some time, Preview’s File menu has offered an “Import from…” option that should recognize most devices that Mac OS X natively supports. Plug in your iPhone or iPod touch, and that menu will read “Import from [name of your device.” Unsurprisingly, it also supports the iPad now as well. Select one or more images from the dialog, and they are imported by default to ~/Pictures, then automatically opened in Preview for editing.
