CS3 locking up when I am trying to "save as"

All of a sudden my CS3 started to lock up when I try to use "save as" option to save my files. I am able to use "save" function but the moment I click on "save as" the entire program locks up. I am not sure what to do at this point and of course it is happening as I have a project due in 2 days! Any help is greatly appreciated!

You also can try to restore preferences files.
click shift+ctrl+alt when open any cs suites and click yes when you are prompted to restore all preferences.better try this before you taking hard times of reinstalling it.

Sounds like you have a broken link.

There are possibly better ways to fix this, but as you have said that you have 2 days to complete a project then I suggest that you simply uninstall and reinstall Photoshop. This will take long enough without running around trying out other alternatives only to perhaps come back to the uninstall reinstall option.

Good luck.

My lock screen on galaxy 5 won't come on. It goes straight to home screen. Why is it doing that? It was fine 2 days ago. How can I get it back?

Three Reasons Why Screen Lock is Gone
1. Screen Lock has been deactivated (Instructions how to activate are at bottom.)
2. Android Screen Security File may have been deleted, and screen lock option is no longer on your devise.(A Factory Reset will restore original Android files)
3. Malfunction Somewhere in Samsung Phone. (A Factory Reset might work, but not guaranteed)
(How to Factory Reset phone at bottom.)

How to ativate Screen Lock and Security settings

1. Press the apps icon, it usually at the bottom of screen.
2. Find Settings and press that button to open settings menu.
4. Scroll down the menu to Lock Screen and Security, press that to open options menu.
5. The first option at top is Screen Lock Type.Press and Open.
6. You will have 3 lock types to choose from. Swipe Lock, Passcode Lock, Password Lock
(advise, do not forget password, only a hard phone reset, or an apk lockout file will get you back in)

If activating screen lock through settings did not work, or if option is not available, you can try to reset phone to the way it was when you bought it.

There is a couple things you should know.
1. contacts, photos, videos, downloaded apps, games, and everything not on the phone when it was first bought, or when you first got the phone will be erased.
2. You can back up contacts, photos, videos, in settings menu, scroll down to Backup and Reset. Or save to an sd card, and remove sd card before applying reset option
3. If you have an account (google or android email) associated with your phone, you will need email address, ( and password to get back in phone after phone resets and turns on.) Dont remember password, Please create a new password now before continuing to reset to manufacture settings.

Reset Phone to Manufacture Settings
1. Remove SD Card, or its saved files will be erased.
2. Open apps, Open Settings Menu, Scroll Down to Backup and Reset.
3. Scroll down to bottom of page to Factory Data Reset.
4. Follow instructions to reset phone.

When your phone comes back on, Swipe Screen Unlock should be active at phone turn on, if screen lock is not showing try again to turn on in security settings.
If still does not work,
I am sorry, Your phone has permanantly malfunctioned. You can try your phone store, or a phone repair shop.

Cannot save to JPEG or as TIFF in PS3 file error pops up

"File Locks" are caused in windows by a program having the files open with write access.

- Verify that you do not have the images open in any other program.
- Verify that you are not attempting to write to read-only media, such as a CD-ROM or a flash-card that has the lock-tab enabled.
- If the above two options do not corect the problem, close all programs and navigate to the directory with Explorer and right click on the directory and click on the Security tab. Verify that the account you are logged in to has Write permissions checked, if not, check the box and click OK. If you run into problems or receive errors, note that you must be logged on using an account that has administrative rights (this is usually the case).

Hope this helps.

Changing serial number after reinstalling CS3 Premium

On Microsoft Windows:

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Add/Remove Programs
Scroll-down to Adobe CS3 Design Premium
Click it
Choose "uninstall" (or "remove") to properly delete the software.

Then, install the software.

Presumably, your Mac has a similar "uninstall software" option. Correct?

Cannot "save" quark 6.5 files, have to "save as" and rename

Have you tried the following

it could be that the file is locked go the file and single click on it go to the file menu and select get info. see if the file is locked, if it is unlock it

or do a "save as" in Quark and rename the file

it may be that when you have transferred your files that the permissions are not set properly. do the same as the file is locked above but look to see whether you are the owner and whether you have read write permissions. If you don't change or add yourself as the owner.

Hope this helps.

PhotoShop CS3 Droplet automation

Try the following steps
  1. Choose File => Automate => Create Droplet.
  2. Specify where to save the droplet. Click Choose in the Save Droplet In section of the dialog box and navigate to the location.
  3. Select the Action Set, and then designate which action you intend to use within the Set and Action menus. (Select the action in the Actions palette before you open the dialog box to preselect these menus.
  4. Set Play options for the droplet:
    a. Override Action “Open” Commands Open commands in the action refer to the batched files, rather than to the file names specified in the action. Deselect Override Action “Open” Commands if the action was recorded to operate on open files or if the action contains Open commands for specific files that are required by the action.
    b. Include All Subfolders Processes files in subdirectories.
    c. Suppress Color Profile Warnings Turns off display of color profile messages.
    d. Suppress File Open Options Dialogs Hides File Open Options dialog boxes. This is useful when batching actions on camera raw image files. The default or previously specified settings will be used.
  5. Choose a destination for the processed files from the Destination menu:
    a. None Leaves the files open without saving changes (unless the action includes a Save command).
    b. Save And Close Saves the files in their current location, overwriting the original files.
    c. Folder Saves the processed files to another location. Click Choose to specify the destination folder.

    Note: You can record an action that saves using a specified file name and folder. If you do this and deselect Override Action “Save As” Commands, the same file is overwritten each time. If you record your Save As step in the action without specifying a file name, the droplet saves it to the same folder each time but uses the file name of the document being saved.

  6. If the action includes a Save As command, choose Override Action “Save As” Commands to make sure files are saved to the folder you specified (or to their original folder if you chose Save And Close.) To use this option, the action must contain a Save As command, whether or not it specifies a save location or file name; otherwise, no files are saved.

    Some save options are not available in the Batch command (such as JPEG compression or TIFF options). To use these options, record them in the action, then use the Override Action “Save As” Commands option to make sure that your files are saved where you specify in the Batch command.

  7. If you chose Folder as the destination, specify a file-naming convention and select file compatibility options for the processed files:
    a. For File Naming, select elements from the pop‑up menus or enter text into the fields to be combined into the default names for all files. Elements include document name, serial number or letter, file creation date, and file extension. Starting Serial Number specifies the starting number for any serial number fields. Serial letter fields always start with the letter “A” for the first file.
    b. For Compatibility, choose Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX to make file names compatible with Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX operating systems.
  8. Select an option for error processing from the Errors pop‑up menu:
    a. Stop For Errors Suspends the process until you confirm the error message.
    b. Log Errors To File Records each error in a file without stopping the process. If errors are logged to a file, a message appears after processing. To review the error file, open it in a text editor after the Batch command runs.
Give it a try.........

You probably need to flatten the image to get it into a background layer only. Choose in menu: Layer/Flatten image then try to save your image.

If it didn't work, then most likely your image is in 16 bits/channel mode, change it to 8 bits/channel. Choose in menu: Image/Mode/8 bits/channel.

Photoshop CS3 Error

I've never heard of this, unless the user is saving to a PDF format. Have you tried saving a Photoshop document in a different format? Photoshop files are: PSD's or PDD's. I have only ever seen 'presets' in PDF format. In CS3, these are set by selecting: Edit> Adobe PDF Presets.
