It seems you use OSX 10.8.3 and you try to edit the raw files with preview app.

If you click on the word "locked" in the header line beside the file name you can unlock it. If you do that, you have to convert the file to a tiff file, as the automatic "versioning" does not work with raw files from a camera.

You could use iPhoto to edit your raw files.

I agree.  I had never don this before, but after reading Johannes post I tried it and locked up the file.

One day long ago, a sorcerer and a warrior did battle, as such things were commonplace in that age. Sometimes the sorcerer won, and the sum value of human abilities was improved some trifling amount. Sometimes the warrior won, and again the human race improved by some insignificant amount, for a sorcerer who can't defeat one miserable warrior is a poor sorcerer indeed.
