I am getting the same error.
Only when i try to launch the Filter->Sharpen->Shake Reduction, i get the message, "The operation could not be completed. A write permissions error has occured"
I am able to do everything else, including save the file.
What operating system version are you running?
I am on Mac OS X, 10.9.1 (Mavericks)
And i am using Photoshop CC version 14.2 x64. I get this error for Adaptive Wide Angle and Lens Correction too. Camera Raw Filter, Liquify, Oil Paint and Vanishing Point seem to work fine.
Hi, I am also trialing Photoshop CC (VERSION 14.2) for thirty days and it also comes up with "permissions error has occured" when i try to use 'shake reduction'. I have a Macbook Pro, OS X 10.7.5. i have done a complete reinstall without any change.
This seems to be caused by a folder in the plugin preferences path with bad write permissions. First try running the Disk Utility in the Utilities folder to verify or fix hard disk permissions. That usually does not work. Next I would try creating a admin user for your computer. Switch to the admin user and then run Photoshop. This usually will allow the plugins to work. It confirms a bad folder permission setting. To really fix the root problem you need to find the bad folder(s) and change their permissions using the Get Info dialog. I can help with that.
Thanks John. I will give this a try as soon as I get back to my mac (which will be in another 6 hours or so)
So I did some more research and you may be able to get it all working again by creaing and using another normal non-admin user on you computer. The new user account will create a new preferences path in the hidden library folder which hopefully will have all the correct folder permissions.
I appear to have the same problem with shake reduction. Is there anyway to determine which folder has the wrong permissions and then fix it? Could you maybe also tell me what the permissions should be?

To fix the permission:
- Hold down the Alt (Option) key when using the Go menu. The user library folder is now listed below the current user's home directory. Click and open the library folder.
- Select the Preferences folder. Press command-I to get Info. Expand sharing and permssions at the bottom of the Get Info dialog. Select your user name, the one with (me) after it and make sure Read & Write privileges are set, not Read Only.
- If that folder is ok move down to the Adobe folder in Preferences and do the same check.
- If that folder is ok move down to the Plugins folder in the Adobe folder and do the same check. I suspect this is the bad one.
One of these should have Read Only privileges set.
Please let me know how it goes.
Thanks John, setting the permissions worked perfectly.
Thank you John.
It was the permissions on the Adobe folder that were set to read only.
The filters are working fine now.
I am having the same issue, I have checked the permissions folder and also the adobe folder and they seem fine. But I don't appear to have a Plugins folder in the adobe folder.. can you help?
There should be no folders in the Adobe folder and subfolders with Read Only privileges. Fix the other folders and retest. Let me know how it goes.
Apple also has a webpage for fixing home directory permissions problems on Mavericks.
i seem to be missing a trick here. i have created a non admin user account on my macbook pro, gone into:
Library - Preferences - Adobe Photoshop CC Settings - chose the "write & read" permission. I have also done this for "Internet Plug - ins" too.
There is also an "Adobe" folder in Preferences as well which i added "Write & Read" to "Everyone" as my account was not listed.
i then ran the trial version on Photoshop CC and tried to use the "Sharpen, Shake Reduction" and still the error message came up again.
Any further advice would be welcome.
Have you tried Apples fix for all user home folder permissions?

There seems to be a problem with Bridge CC and mac 10.9. It is a permission problem. Not sure if this is spill over to your problelm or not. Here is Bridge solution.
Open Finder > (go) Computer > Macintosh HD (for me) > Users > Click once on the Home icon (main admin) > Get Info >
click on lock and authorise bottom right > click on cog wheel drop down > click on 'Apply to enclosed items' > OK
Thanks for all your help guys, Curt, your solution worked. Cheers mate.
Thanks. If you mark my thread (16) Correct then others reading this thread will be able to find answer quickly.
This problem has been plaguing me for a year. Yours is the only solution that worked. You rock!!!
"- Select the Preferences folder. Press command-I to get Info. Expand sharing and permssions at the bottom of the Get Info dialog. Select your user name, the one with (me) after it and make sure Read & Write privileges are set, not Read Only."
Okay, I got this far and there is no (me) folder. There is only system and everyone, which are both set to Read & Write.
Other files on my computer do have all three (the two above plus the Me folder).
I am having the problem with the liquify filter. I can use the filter but when I go to save the image after using the filter, I get the permissions warning.
FWIW, I'm on a MacPro using OS 10.11.13 and the latest update on PS CC (updated yesterday).
CurtY, Thank You!! This fix worked for me!!!!
