Hi, I just bought and installed CS5.5 for Mac. I went to use Photoshop to save my image for the web and got an error box "A written permissions error occurred". I have never had this happen before and this is brand new software. It looked like your answer to a similar question was to throw out the preferences, but I could not find it on my Mac (looks like you were instructing a PC person). Please help and thanks, Sheri

Hi Sheri, it sounds like your computer may have permissions issues. Have you tried repairing permissions or creating a new admin user account and running Photoshop from the new user?
