Photoshop :: CS6 - Getting Locked File - Why

Jul 11, 2012

I am creating an image in Photoshop CS6. I've saved it a few times but now it's telling me the file is locked. I resaved it as something else and now the original file has vanished!
I looked at the properties of the file before it vanished and clicked the security tab and it told me I didn't have permission to view it and I had to be an administrative user, which I am. It gave the option of giving myself permission and said the previous owner may no longer have permission but there was no previous owner listed (obviously because there never was one).
These files are very important, I can't risk them just vanishing or locking me out. Why is this happening and how can I stop it?

Photoshop :: Edits Locked

Jan 20, 2009

I just activated my trial edition with a serial number. Now, when I open an image the cursor becomes a stop sign (circle with slash line through it).

Not sure that activation caused this, but I cannot edit my images.

Photoshop :: 7.0 Locked Error

Jan 12, 2008

I try to open my Photoshop 7.0 I get two error messages. I don't understand why I am getting these messages, or how to fix them. The error messages appear at startup during the initializing of the Photoshop 7.0, these messages state:

Error Message 1: Can not find workspace folder.

Error Message 2: Could not initialize Photoshop because the file is locked. Use the Properties command in Windows Explorer to unlock the file.

There is no Properties command under Windows Explorer, there is one under Photoshop 7.0, but nowhere does it say "unlock file". I have seen a similar problem for the CS2 in the FAQ section, so I tried to use that fix, but it did not work. I have uninstalled & reinstalled, cleared cache, de-fragged, and unhidden the files ...

Photoshop :: [locked] PC - Mac Upgrade

Aug 4, 2009

Adobe production premium? I have this for windows. what if i wanted it for mac? If i wanted it on both windows and mac i'm guessing that would mean buying it again fully as another license? Or could it be used as the "secondary install" of the application? (I would keep this PC too). Either way, is it possible to get the program as another download using the same serial code, but one for PC (which i have), and one for mac?So i'd have one serial code but with two installers, one pc, one mac, basically.

Photoshop :: Partially Locked?

Jun 3, 2008

I have a file that someone created and one of the layers says that it is 'Partially Locked'.

I never had delt with this before and was wondering how I go about unlocking it.

Double Clicking it, like I do with locked layers, only brought up the layer style property box.

Photoshop :: Layers Are Locked

Mar 8, 2009

I am using Photoshop CS2 with Windows XP. Why are all the photos that I import into Photoshop have the layer locked. I tried to save them both as .psd and as .jpeg. But, it makes no difference. In the layer pallette, the layer is marked as locked but the icons at the top are all grayed out.

Photoshop :: File' Locked ...

May 25, 2008

got my new computer---AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ CPU, 4 GB RAM, two 1 TB SATA hard disks (logical drives C:, D:, and E: on first physical hard disk; drives F: and G: and the second). Operating system is Windows XP SP2.

When I installed Photoshop CS3 10.0.1, I did not enter the serial number immediately in order to enjoy the CS3 Extended trial period (my serial number is for CS3 Standard). Eventually the trial period expired, and I entered my serial number. No problems until here.

Today I deactivated the Photoshop copy on the old machine and activated it on the new one, and that's when the problem started. Now Photoshop won't work anymore. It worked fine prior to activation.

Or actually, it
i does
work ... but only when drive C: is selected as the primary scratch disk which under Windows obviously is a bad choice. But Photoshop won't let me choose anything different. Whenever I try to deselect C: from the list of active scratch disks (remove the tick mark) or to change the order of active scratch disks so that C: is not the topmost anymore then Photoshop will refuse to re-launch.

Instead, upon re-launch it will display a message box (with 'Adobe Photoshop CS3' as the title bar and an OK button as the only option) saying, 'Could not initialize Photoshop because the file is locked. Use the "Properties" command in the Windows Explorer to unlock the file.' Of course, it doesn't bother to say what file it is talking about, or what 'locked' is supposed to mean. Explorer's 'Property' command does not provide any means to 'lock' or to 'unlock' a file. To get out of this situation, I have to delete Photoshop's preferences file which leaves me where I started, i. e. with drive C: as the primary scratch disk. I can always add more drives to the list of active scratch disks. But I must not remove C: from the top of that list or Photoshop won't work anymore.

But I want Photoshop to use G: as the scratch disk. It worked fine that way until I carried out the $#!%@ activation procedure!

Photoshop :: Why Is Layer 1 Locked In Every New Document

Oct 22, 2013

What is/are the benefits of having every background layer of a newly opened document locked? I have never come across a need for it and wish it wasn't. It only means I have to create a new layer and import an image to that. Or, double click the layer to unlock it. Is there a way to permanently eliminate that "preference?" It's like entering a room with your shoes tied together.

Photoshop :: Locked Layer - How To Unlock

Mar 13, 2013

one layer in a photoshop document has a padlock on it; no clue how it got there. I can't make it go away; perhaps the method is different in CS6 than in previous versions...
Any clue about this? I can't fill a selection on this particular layer...don't  know why. The layer in question IS selected, and the selection is active, etc.
