A fine suburban #sunrise and a vexing #CS6 issue

Sacramento SunriseMade a dawn run to the nearby Peets for some dry cappuccinos, and was bathed in glow on my return by one of the most spectacular sunrises I have ever seen. It was post-peak when I got back (to the place where I’m staying in Gold River, California), but with some underexposure and white balance tweaking, I was able to get the shots in this set here.

Alas, the shot above is not in that set. It’s a screen shot I took of an adjusted raw file that Adobe Photoshop CS6 simply refused to save. “The file could not be created,” it said. No explanation. I checked permissions. No problem there. It just refused. I just checke, and the same thing happens with all files from all directories on all drives. Photoshop is suddenly useless to for editing RAW files. Any suggestions?

[Later…] An Adobe forum provided the answer here. All better now.

    What a spectacular sunrise. Beautifully photographed too. How was the weather that day?

    Shortly after this, it rained.

    Did you try to “Open in Camera RAW” format via the Bridge interface?

    I have Bridge but never used it. Never knew what it did, in fact.

    FWIW, what I’m dealing with is saving an edited RAW file in .jpg or .png — something I’ve been done with countless thousands of files, using every Photoshop going back many versions.
