PS Browser: how do you get rid of the lock on the thumbnails ?

How do you unlock those thumbnails with a lock on them? I have never done anything to purposely lock them.

The problem is while trying to organize pix... when you drag the locked thumbnails to a different folder... new pix are created at the new location but they remain in their current location as well.. creates a problem.

there seems to be no real info on the browse window in "Help"


Later: Ok by right clicking on the photo in "windows explorer" and selecting properties I was able to unlock the the file by unchecking the read only box.

So now my question becomes why are these files read only ? Nearly 1/3 of my pix are this way.

Because they came from a CD, maybe? Files stored on a CD are read-only, and this attribute "travels" with the files when they are copied from the CD to your HD...

I see

well that makes sense.. It's nice that photoshop included a browser from ps7 on... and is handy but I still like irfanview for moving files and a few other things
thanks
