The image cannot be saved as it is read-only. You can save it to another filename name on a writable device as needed. This message can occur if you're working directly from read-only media such as a DVD/CD.

Remove Read-Only Attribute

Check to see if the file is read-only.

To do this, open Explorer, locate the file, and right-click on the filename. Select properties. You will see the file attributes at the bottom of the properties dialog.

If the Read-only attribute is set, toggle the check-box off.

In rare cases, the entire folder (or drive) may be set to read-only. In these situations you may need to clear the read-only state from the drive or folder, following the steps above, but going into the properties of the folder or drive.

Before changing the read-only state on a folder or drive, consider if there were good reasons why read-only was set before clearing the flag. Also consider if another writable location would be better.
