Hello,
I’m Frank and I am new to the forums. My problem is with Vista Ultimate and the printing picture package. When I go to save new picture package templates, Vista gives me a message that I do not have permission to save to that file. If I right click on the Photoshop Icon when I open it and open it as an administrator (which I an listed as an administrator in the users section anyway) it will then allow me to save my picture package templates, but then I lose the ability to drag files into the template or into Photoshop. I am restricted to opening everything from the menu, which is a real time eater. Otherwise everything seems to be smooth with Vista.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks
Frank

It’s caused by UAC (User Account Control). If you turn UAC off, the permission error goes away.

HTH,

Thank you Terri, Got to love Microsoft for giving us our daily dose of aggravation.

Thanks

Yeah, UAC is plain ugly. I tried using it for a while…

Here’s another thing to watch out for:

If Google Desktop is running, I’ve found it will steal any Photoshop commands that match it’s command set. Example…control, alt, G opens the Google Desktop address bar if it is running instead of creating a clipping mask in Photoshop CS3.

Why would anyone want Google Desktop?
