My lightroom on my MAC is not allowing me to import photos all of a sudden. When I try to import it says 'Unable to create directory. You don't have permission to save the file "2021-01-23" in the folder "2021". (1) *then it names the image I tried to import. I tried to import photos I have edited in lightroom in the past and it simply just won't let me import anything.
I am not tech savvy at all and I am so confused. Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry that you're getting an error "Unable to create directory. You do not have permission to save the file" while saving a file in Lightroom Desktop.
Which exact version of Lightroom Desktop are you using and what is your macOS version?
Does it help if you navigate to Adobe Lightroom Desktop > Preferences > :Local Storage > Reset ?
You likely have a permission issue at the drive or folder level. You will need to use the Mac OS to change the permissions for your User Account for that (and perhaps other) locations. If changing doesn't work you may need to repair your permissions.
