Can't save Photoshop Document

Hello Im using Photoshop CS6 on Mac OSX, and I have stumbled across this problem where I cant save my document.
Every time I try to save a file I get this window:
"Could not save as “Untitled-1.psd” because the file is locked, you do not have necessary access permissions, or another program is using the file. Use the ‘Get Info’ command in the Finder to ensure the file is unlocked and you have permission to access the file. If the problem persists, save the document to a different file or duplicate it in the Finder."
Things i've tried:
Reinstalled Photoshop
Repaired disk Permissions in disk utility
change permissions in get info window to write and read
remade my preferences in photoshop
Please any help would be greatly appreciated I work with photoshop a lot and this is not allowing me to work as I cant save my files.

Are you trying to save directly to your boot drive, or to an external HD?  If the latter, check that you have both Read AND Write permissions to that drive.
A lot more information about your hardware and software is needed.
If you give complete and detailed information about your setup and the issue at hand,
such as your platform (Mac or Win),
exact versions of your OS, of Photoshop (not just "CC", but something like CC2014.v.2.2) and of Bridge,
your settings in Photoshop > Preference > Performance
the type of file you were working on,
machine specs, such as total installed RAM, scratch file HDs, total available HD space, video card specs, including total VRAM installed,
what troubleshooting steps you have taken so far,
what error message(s) you receive,
if having issues opening raw files also the exact camera make and model that generated them,
if you're having printing issues, indicate the exact make and model of your printer, paper size, image dimensions in pixels (so many pixels wide by so many pixels high). if going through a RIP, specify that too.
a screen shot of your settings or of the image could be very helpful too,
someone may be able to help you (not necessarily this poster, who is not a Windows user).

  • Can't save photoshop documents in correct format?

    I can't save in any other formats than these:
    I've tried reinstalling photoshop CS5, and still no luck.
    It gives me the options when I change the settings to either 8-bit, or 16-bit. But I can't get it to work for 32-Bit.

    This is what the manual says anyway. l tml

  • I can't save *new* documents back to SharePoint

    I can’t save *new* documents back to SharePoint. We have a SharePoint 2013 development environment, running on Windows Server 2012 and a Windows 7 Client Computer with Office 2010.
    Every time I click „new document“, SharePoint opens the corresponding template file in the client application (Word, Excel,…) So far, so good. When i select „Save“, the client application brings up a local save path on the client computer, not the SharePoint
    document library.
    I did some research and tried many approaches, but none of them worked.
    I installed the Desktop Experience Feature on the Windows Server 2012, added the server address to trusted sites, gave the user farm-administrator rights (to make sure it is no security problem) and switched the authentication mode for the web application.
    Does anyone know this problem and found a solution?

    For troubleshooting your issue, you can try to add a registry value to your local registry (on a machine with Office Applications installed through which you are accessing SharePoint sites):
    Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
    Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click Multi-String Value.
    Type AuthForwardServerList, and then press ENTER.
    On the Edit menu, click Modify.
    In the Value data box, type the URL of the server that hosts the Web share, and then click OK.
    Note You can also type a list of URLs in the Value data box. For more information, see the "Sample URL list" section in this article.
    Exit Registry Editor.

    Hi, After installing Adobe Reader 10.1.10 can't to do several actions. I saw that since version 9. I can't save PDF  documents provided by internet companies. The options that appears below, like  to save, print, + or -, are flashing all the time and can't do anything. If I click right button in the name of the document, the option save destiny deshabilited too. What can I do? pls urgent. My operative system is Windows 7.

    Best to keep the replies in the other post, but I wanted to comment on something you said "I was told that Adobe X is a 32 bit program and that could be why it's running slow." Yes, it's a 32 bit program. No, it's complete nonsense to say that 32 bit programs run slow. There seems to be a general belief that 64 bit is better because, well, because, um, because it's a bigger number so it must be, right? Sorry, I'm not mocking you, but there is such nonsense about this, that I think software makers are having to put a lot of effort into making 64 bit software for no good reason at all.

    I made a dumb decision to 'Erase Free Space' on my drive. I now have no free space, I realize because it wrote 0's over all my free space. Is there a way to undo this??? Help please I can't save any documents now! Thanks in advance all, it is truly appreciated. how can find the hidden temporary files using the terminal what do i type in?

    It's more likely a failed Erase Free Space, which creates a huge temporary file; that's why it looks like you have no more available drive space. You can recover from this. See these links e_space 
    Post back if you need any help with this.

  • I just had my old operating system reinstalled, and i can't save pages documents, don't know how to install word

    i just had my old operating system reinstalled after a breakdown, and now i can't save pages documents. i don't know how to install word.

    What was your old system?
    What is your new System?
    What version of Pages?
    How did you install it?
    I don't know if you can see what's on my screen, but I definitely can't see what's on yours.
    To Install Word, buy it and follow the instructions.

  • How to close a frozen warning: I am unable to close the "charicter boarders aren't supported and were removed" warning on my pages. Untill warning is closed I can not save my document. How can I get my document saved?

    I have an unsaved document open in pages but can not save it because the, "charicter boarders aren't supported and were removed" warning is open and I can not close the warning. How can i get the warning to close so I can save my document? Can I save the document without closing the warning?

    Probably not, but as you will have been unable to make any changes to the document with that warning window open, you're not going to lose anything by quitting (or force quitting) without saving. You'll still have the original document you were trying to import.
    I would suggest attempting to open the document in one of the open source Office applications, LibreOffice, Apache OpenOffice, or NeoOffice, each available for download from the linked sites. Once open there, remove the attributes that are causing the warning, save the file (as an MS Word document), then try opening that version in Pages.

  • Can't Save Word documents

    Suddenly I can't save Word documents or even exit Word without using force quit. How can I correct this

    Then you have an iMac Intel, not a PPC.    Now, since you haven't installed a security update, and you are sure you haven't the only reason the documents may not save is that the installation was not good.   Be sure first your data is backed up.  Try to run the installer for Office inside the Installer folder, and to be doubly certain, download the latest Office v.X patch.  If it still doesn't work, you may want to try an Office alternative such as NeoOffice, OpenOffice, Google Docs, or Zoho Writer.

  • I can not save my documents in Pages...

    I can not save my documents in Pages 09 4.0.5. "Save as" gives me the message "Can not save ´xxx´ Invalid agrument"
    The problem just occurred and does not seem to go away. What to do?

    It's very unlikely that the Pages program is corrupt. Corruption of the Pages preferences would be much more common & does not require reinstalling the program to fix. Go to HD > Users > (your account) > Library > Preferences, delete the, empty the Trash & then restart Pages.

  • How can I save my document from pages to a flash drive?

    How can I save my document from pages to a flash drive?

    Locate the file on your Mac, plug in the USB stick (the mac should prompt you to open it, or do this automatically), click and drag the file from the computer (wherever it's saved to) to the USB folder. That's just putting an already saved file there.
    To save it TO your USB stick, find it in the Save To diolog on the sidebar. Click it, then save it there.

  • What do I do if I can't save my document in Microsoft Office Word 2011?

    I can't save my document, and I don't know what to do. I have tried to save the file in different folders, I have tried to copy all the text and save in a new document, I have tried to save it to an external harddrive and a USB but with no luck. The document is full of equations, and I therefore can't simply send it over to aanother computer via mail etc. Whenever I try to save it doesn't show anything, but the document is still named: 'Document 5'. The little dot in the red circle is still there obv.
    No window with the problem is poppin' up and I have no idea what is wrong. I have checked for updates, but none is available. I have 427,82 GB out of 499,25 GB available on my harddrive disc w/e it's called.
    Please help, thanks
    btw. the assignment deadline is the 19th of May

    I can't directly help you with the Save issue you're having with MS Word. However, since your deadline is 19th May for your assignment, the priority is to get it sent before the deadline. Have you tried saving the document as a .pdf? If not, do the following:
    With the document open, from the menubar select File->Print
    In the Print dialogue box click PDF drop down menu (bottom left of the Print dialogue window)
    Select Save as PDF
    Has the document been saved as a PDF?

  • How can I save PDF document after Digital signature ?

  • I can't save my documents in a specific folder.

    Pages says that my file does not exist and I'm not trying to open it, I'm trying to save it. I run Pages 5.5.2 in OS X 10.10.2. Pleas help, I've made a mess with my documents due to that problem.
    Pages won't save my documents where I want, I need to save them in the Documents folder and the move them into the new folder I created.

    The iOS versions of the iWork apps uses the same format as iWork '09 so it is not surprising that the files open there. This sure sounds like an older version of Pages is tryiing to open the files. I rarely create documents on my iOS devices, but I just did a test. I created a very simple Pages document on my iPad then downloaded it from on my Mac mini running Snow Leopard & Pages 4.0.4. It opened without problems.
    Pages 4.2 is not the latest version for Mountain Lion, 4.3 is. Although I doubt that update would make a difference in your problem, it's definitely worth updating. You can download the standalone updater from this page if Software Update doesn't find it. If updating doesn't work, I suggest doing a Spotlight search for "" (without the quotes).
