Photoshop 22.2.0 release
I figured out the problem with online chat. It was an external harddrive permissoions issue.
I was wondering how you fixed the harddrive permissions issue. I've granted full disk access and am still having the problem. Can you assist?
I want to follow up with the same problem on vrs 22.3.0 in MacOS 11.2.3
I've made sure Full Disk Access is allowed on both Lightroom Classic 10.2 and PS, It will allow me to save once(in .tif) but any more saves I get the response of "Could not save "file name" because of a program error".
It will allow me to "save as" under a different file name.
I'm guessing , based on the fact that there is no response to this message from April 15th , that I won't get a response either.
I have this exact same issue and it's driving me crazy. The Adobe help suggested rolling back to a previous version of Photoshop, which I did, and the problem was still there. Someone above (Starwhale) suggested it was an external hard drive permissions issue. I'm not sure what that means but I figured I'd let you know. Good luck!
Hi, If I save a file and then decide to change something and then save again to replace the previos file I get the "can't save because of a program error" I am using PS 22.4.2
MacOS Big Sur 11.4
Has anyone figured something out regarding this error?
Anyone?? I just upgraded to PS 2022 and the problem is even worse! Used to just happen when adjusting a jpg then resaving, but now it is also happening with layered .psd files!! Where are the external harddrive permissions instructions? Please help!
I know this isn't a solution, but I've just been having to save a copy to the Desktop, then drag/drop that file into the harddrive to replace the file that won't save there. Crazy that this is still an issue in the current version.
Pretty annoying, but I hope this helps someone!
