Error message when trying to save a scanned photo on a MAC with Maveric

I am trying to save a scanned photo (Photosmart C7280) and I am getting this message:

An error has occurred saving the file because it could not be written to.  Check the properties for the file to make sure it is not read-only.

I'm not sure what to do as this has never happened before.  Instructions would be helpful.
