My iMac shut down at the beginning of a save and when I relaunched my iMac photoshop came up with my edited image but now won't let me re-save. It says I can save again once the background save is complete. Yet the background save has not moved past 0% for over an hour now. Please help I don't want to lose my edited work by relaunching photoshop.

A system hang or freeze requiring a computer restart usually means a low level failure such as a driver (video card driver, etc), failing/damage hard disk, damaged OS installation, or failing hardware (hard disk, video card, etc). Might be worth a trip to an Apple Store to get the machine checked out.
