I installed today Photoshop Elements 12 on my new iMac, which replace a PC, on which I had previously installed this software (there was two discs in the box bought in January 2014, one disc for Windows and a second one for Mac).
Now when I try to save a photo modified with the software, I have a message telling me that the system cannot save the photo, because I don't have an authorization in writing.
What's the solution? Can you help me?
Thank's in advance.

You are trying to save to a directory where you do not have permission to write files. You need to change the permissions on that directory (in the Finder) so that you have permission to write files there.
