Photoshop :: Error :: Could Not Save A Copy As C:...
Mar 4, 2007
What im doing is trying to create animations. There is a main psd file that I work on, and then I move the objects slightly and save it as a jpg.
But what happens is after 3-5 saves it starts saying "Could not save a copy as 'C:...
ame.jpg' because the file is already in use or was left open" even though it's not. And then the jpg I was trying to save shows up with the correct name, but its not useable and displays 0 bytes.
I dont get it because it usually works the first few times, and then I get that message. Whats going on? How do I not get this problem?
I am copying objects to a new database and and cloning as an Entity type succesfully for all objects.When I save the database to a new file I get the attached error
'Warning: An error occurred during save....'
I have isolated this to Polylines and have tried to Process as Type PolyLine but still get the error.Here is the code I use for the polyline.(My entity processing code is identical except for object type).
Dim MyPolyLine As DatabaseServices.Polyline MyPolyLine = CType(myObjID.GetObject(DatabaseServices.OpenMode.ForRead), _ Database Services.Polyline)Dim NewEntity As DatabaseServices.Polyline = CType(MyPolyLine.Clone, _ DatabaseServices.Polyline)NewEntity. Set Database Defaults(NewDB) NewBTR.AppendEntity(NewEntity)NewTrans.AddNewlyCreatedDBObject(NewEntity, True)NewEntity.Layer = MyPolyLine.Layer NewEntity.Linetype = "ByLayer"NewEntity.Material = "ByLayer"
so photoshop totally disappointed me yesterday, i spent HRS creating a graphic and i went to save it to PNG, it said i could only save it as a copy; so i clicked ok....my graphic wasn't saved AT ALL!...what am i doing wrong???
I have a number of PSD files I've created and I'm trying to save them as PDFs. I can Save for Web and Devices, I can save as a .gif, .eps., and every other format I've tested, but I cannot save as a PDF. I get the error:
"Could not save a copy as (filename) because the file is already in use or was left open by another application."
I'm running Adobe Master Collection CS5 with Photoshop CS 5.5 (12.0.4 x64) on a Windows 7 64-bit machine. I have a 928 GB HD with 697 GB free.
I have rebooted and tried saving the files immediately after I reboot. I have killed my virus scanner. I have killed a number of other possible culprits including Acrotray.exe and CS5ServiceManager.ext
I have run Process Explorer as recommended by Microsoft and found no applications using the file. I've also tried saving the file to my external hard drive and/or renaming the file with only rare luck.
The boards seem to suggest Adobe isn't taking responsibility for this and pointing it back to the OS or other software. How/where to kill whatever process it is - but at this point, all my indicators point back to Photoshop.
I'm trying to create a digital layout in PSCS version 8.0, and when I go to save the psd file (very early stages of the creation...its not very large yet) I get an error that says "Unable to save (file name) because of a disc error". I've never seen this before and am trying not to panic, but I'm on a deadline! LOL And am running behind as usual!
I am using an older mac, and I'm pretty dang maxed out on Gb...gotta clean up some files, but having a hard time finding a free dup file finder for macs...so I'm procrastinating, basically. Could the fact that I've got very little Gb available left have something to do with this?
I supported Pshop for Adobe when 4 came out (1997) and STILL I have to delete the automatic insertion of 'copy' into the filename when I save a layered .psd as a .jpg. There is NO reason for this piece of code anymore. As I understand it, there was some weird concern that, since layers were new, people wouldn't realize that saving as a .jpg wouldn't preserve them and they would also have to save the .psd as well - which you are warned about anyway on close.
Why this piece of code is still there? Why I have had to delete 'copy' on save as .jpg for FIFTEEN years now?
While working on a complex project with PSCS4 that involved copying and pasting from numerous open documents, I have been receiving an error message shown in the link. PS then shuts down with loss of my data.
I'm running Windows XP Pro with a dual Xeon processor workstation with 2GB of error correcting memory. PS3 and other applications have been working properly.
way to stop Photoshop from adding the 'copy' suffix to files when you save them as additional formats? I'm working accross multiple Photoshop versions on multiple computers and would like to standardize the save functions.
I open a PS file. I chose 'Save As' but uncheck 'Show Layers' in the dialog box. So now it's essentially a 'Save A Copy'. When the new file is saved the original file is written to (although nothing changed) and now has the same modification date as the 'Save A Copy' file. Super strange and causing issues. Because if one flattens or does anything to the original file, those changes are baked into the original file!

-- I can write without problems Action for each special folder, but it take too many time to make 1000 Actions like 1000 folders I have. The problem is in SAVE AS command wich I use in Action. It remembers folder witch was used while recording. Then if I try "Override SAVE AS" option in the Batch window I get edited original files without creatig copies.
I can choose destination NONE, SAVE AND CLOSE, FOLDER. Simply, what I need is SAVE AS COPY AND CLOSE.
My question is simply how do I change the default Save As Copy save type that Photoshop inflicts on you whenever you go to save files as .bmp, .png, etc. files?
I produce allot of images by first saving the original scan or photo as a .psd, manipulating the image, then saving as .jpg or .png for display purposes so having to delete the "copy" from my file names during a long work session gets very annoying.
I have already searched through the Preferences, checked registry file associations, studied the Preferences in Adobe Bridge + the only way I can see to fix this at the moment involves using a disassembler.
Using Elements 6 or 11, (a purchased copy), when I add text and then save the text disappears in the saved copy but remains in the Elements copy. I've spent hours on this being very careful that the save location is where I want it. The photos shown in the bin do contain the text. ??
Upon trying out the trial version of CS6, I keep getting errors when I want to save the file I am currently working on. I can save as a different iteration just fine, but when I hit ctrl + S, I get an error that my filetype or name is invalid, even though Im just... saving... a psd file ... that is in all other aspects functioning correctly. After I dismiss that error mesage, this comes up:
I've had the IT guy at work take a look at the computer and trouble shoot, trying to fix this problem. The persmissions are fine and set correctly. I am not using the file in another program, just photoshop, I'm just trying to save the progress I made on my image. 'm running on a windows 7 PC, trial version of CS6 from the creative cloud.
I'm getting an error message saying "The operation could not be completed." I am able to "save as".I installed CC yesterday and am on a Windows 7 64bit computer. I am using the 64 bit Photoshop CC. I've restarted it several times and still that is happening.
Everytime I try to run 3ds max design I get this error messenge
" An error has occurred and the application will now close. Do you want to attempt to save a copy of the current scene? "
It happens during the lunch screen after loading all the plugins. I searched a lot and tried everything, from updating the video drivers to changing the video card used, to changing the graphics sittings to reinstalling it, still nothing changed the messege shows and the app closes.
So normally when I'm drawing I always save a copy of my work to my external. Sometimes I'm paranoid and want to save one to my dropbox folder as well. So I made an action to save a copy to both places but it always names the file with whatever filename I used to set the action. I didn't rename or anything.
