    Hi everyone,

    Getting a message within photoshop that files cannot be saved as they are locked. I check the same files with 'Get Info' and the locked file box is unchecked. I have changed file permissions on the entire disc so that everyone can read/write but still the same message. Tried terminal command to uncheck flags also to no avail. I can do save as but a little frustrating.
    Is there a workaround to get all my files back onside?

    ps This is a new disc that I may have installed without due care to permissions/ownership when I formatted it.

    details: g5 dual 1.8 10.5.6

    If you edit the files with other programs, do they have the same problem? Gimp can edit Photoshop files.

    Thanks for your reply, but I have too much invested in a photoshop workflow to experiment with gimp (in the short term anyway, but maybe down the line).

    It's not much of an investment or experiment. It's a free download. All you need to do is make a copy of one of your Photoshop files, open it in Gimp make a mod then try to save. This is just to troubleshoot to see if it's an issue with Photoshop or with OSX.
