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!

hard times of reinstalling it.

Re: CS3 locking up when I am trying to "save as"
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.

"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).
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.

palette before you open the dialog box to preselect these menus.
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
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.
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.
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
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.

action, then use the Override Action “Save As” Commands option to make

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.
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.
Try maxing out your temp file storage from within the options in the program. Also does the file play jerky when compiled as a finished file. Using an external player. When the file is played or previewed from within the app it was created, with the GUI loaded and possibly the file not being saved, the amount of memory consumed is exponentiallyincreased.
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.
