    Whats going on? I just copied over everything via migration assisstant on this new install of osx. But my pictures folder was empty - i must have somehow not copied it initially, and now I can't even save to it.

    Also, I can't even seem to set an internet picture to my desktop...I click the set to desktop when the mini computer screen and image comes up, but nothing changes.

    This is an admin account, i changed read and write permissions to everyone on the my pictures folder.

    What gives?

    I would run permissions repair through Disk Utility, restart your machine, and then check to see if the problem still exists.

    Did that, didn't seem to change anything.

    Then I checked permissions via get info again, and this time I specifically set my user account to have read and write...fixed the issue. thanks.

    Log In as admin and go on to town on your file-system!..

    I'm being serious see if Admin can access.
