Unlock files
« on: February 10, 2011, 06:58:02 AM »
How do I unlock a whole file of images??? I know how to do individual images but when I go to Finder>Get Info and unlock the whole file it doesn't work.

Kiska I found this, not sure if it will help?
View the files through Adobe Bridge. Select all and right click. If just one of the selected files is locked you'll get an option to "unlock all", if no files are locked that option will not be available.

Kiska,

I hate to say I don't have a clue and I have never locked my files. Is this done so so don't delete them? I know this sounds simplistic, but have you tried rebooting to see if that will get PhotoShop to work like it should? If you don't get an answer; I could post on the NAPP forum.

Kiska, I also don't know anything about locking files, it must be a Mac thingy?

I found this: "In Get Info, at the very bottom, there is a button, "Apply to enclosed items..."

These files came off a burned cd. Evidently, some cd's can get locked as they're made. It's the only file of countless ones that's locked.

Thanks guys.

What if you transfer the whole content of the CD to your hard drive and then try to open it?
