I am having an issue trying to save any file in photoshop on a new iMac.  When I click save I get a message 'Could not save because write access was not granted' Any suggestions would be much appreciated, I am stuck! Thanks

Thank you for this - I have tried the above steps and find that PS has full access but I cannot choose it on the option of files and folder even though it appears on the list. Anyone with more insights?

I had the same problem. File would save at first, then after edit, it would not save. This fixed the problem in Big Sur and probably works for Catalina as well:

System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy tab > Full Disk Access > check box for Adobe Photoshop

Why am I dealing with CPU, screen stutter, and permissions issues with Photoshop in 2021?? This is the crap that I dealt with in the 90's.

Sorry about the issues, not good

 

I don't have a solution but you may try the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/kb/cc-cleaner-tool-installation-problems.html to remove the existing app installation & reinstall once done.

 

And FYI there are a few issues with Photoshop that you can check here

This has nothing to do with license type. It related OSes increasing security measures.
