I keep getting this error when I try to save a file in presets. Error messge: C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop, CS5\Presents\Card Templetes: You don't have permission to save in this location: Contact the administrator to obtain permission: Would you like to save in the My Pictures folder instead?
I am the only person that uses my computer and I am the administrator, need help with this please.
The message does mean what it says.
Most likely you are not running with Administrator privledges, and really don't have permission to save to that location.
That, or the permissions are messed up on your system.
Can you save other places in the ProgramFiles directory (where the application and presets folder are located)?
Normally the Program Files directory is protected and does require administrator privledges.
No I can't save anywhere in program files from Photoshop CS%, I can save in my pictures then copy and paste it to a folder in the presets.
The message I get from photoshop reads as I typed in my first message.
I have up until recently been able to work on a image in photoshop cs5 and then save that psd document in, say Card templates so that I can see go back later and reuse that psd file, but it will not let me save in cs5 (x86) program files/card templates. I have always been able to do that until 2 months ago, my photoshop would never up date and I got a new computer and it updated now I can't save in (x86) program files.
Not a computer whiz but believe it is bad practice to save User files to Program Files. If you put a file in the wrong place you can foul up the program. That is why the OS has labeled them "read only" to prevent such errors.
Make another file in My Pictures, or somewhere else.
I am having the exact same problem. I just updated CS5 because Photoshop kept crashing in the middle of my work. The crashing problem seems to be solved, but now I am getting the same message you are. I could save files with no problem before the update. I have not touched permissions or anything on my OS and I am logged in as the administrator. It's frustrating!
