I suggest you switch the file sharing over to SMB, the Windows, file sharing protocol. Apple has never really figured out proper network file sharing.
How is your NAS formatted and what is the main file sharing protocol of the NAS?
Thanks for the info. I will try SMB - my NAS does support both so this shouldn't be a problem. I will report later if this is solution...
Is the NAS formatted for Windows, NTFS, or some type of Linux file system.
Unfortunately, switching to SMB does not resolve the issue. The filename still has the directory structure as prefix, separated with colons. In addition, using SMB Photoshop always shows the "save file" popup asking for filename etc. This did not happen with AFP.
The filesystem on the NAS is ext4 - I am using a Synology DS214+ NAS.
Any other ideas?
Sorry I am at a loss. I've never used a NAS and when I did use a Mac file sharing was always hit and miss with my other systems.
Best of luck to you getting this figured out.
Thanks for your help anyway! Maybe somebody else here has been facing the same problem before.
Okay, I found the source of the problem: Photoshop/Lightroom seems to have a problem with a network drive that is labeled "home". My photos are all stored in my home directory on the NAS, therefore I mapped the home network share ("//server/home"). This does simply not work and leads to the problems as described above. As soon as I use another network share (i.e. "//server/pictures" or "//server/lightroom") the problem is gone.
Would be nice if this limitation will be fixed in an upcoming version. This has cost me several hours of investigation... :-(
I don't think it is a problem with Lightroom. I think it is a problem with OS X. The word "Home" in OS X refers to the Users Home Folder, IE Users/YourUserName, as denoted by the House icon that is displayed next to your username folder.
Glad you got it figured out.
