Photoshop always fail to save a file on MAC

Asked By 40 points N/A Posted on -


When I try to save a file made in Photoshop always I get this message. No matter if I change the name, location and extension this message does not disappear. I made some researches on the internet and nothing useful found. Someone please help me to fix this and tell me what is happening? I couldn’t get rid of the problem even after I have reinstalled the Photoshop CS5. Thanks!

DSC_2292-Edit.tif” already exists. Do you want to replace it?

A file or folder with the same name already exists in the folder WiP on MA. Replacing it will overwrite its current contents.

Photoshop always fail to save a file on MAC


I’m not sure if this is really a problem or an error in Adobe Photoshop. I’ve already encountered a program before where when you open a file the program imports it as a new project and on a different format. In your case, it seems that even if you haven’t saved the file yet Adobe Photoshop already saved the file in a folder and I think it’s a kind of backup or temporary file for the file you are working on.

Though I’m also using Adobe Photoshop, I’m not sure if they work differently on Macintosh since I’m not using a Mac OS X because normally in Microsoft Windows, saving a file in Adobe Photoshop doesn’t popup that dialog box. Actually, that is not an error message. It is only a dialog box asking you if you want to overwrite the existing file or not.

I don’t see any harm if you select Replace in the dialog box because it will only update the existing file with your present work. If that dialog box always appears in any file you open in Adobe Photoshop then absolutely the application creates a backup or temporary file on the file you open. Just click Replace whenever you are prompted.
