moving JPEGS to external HD

Recently new to mac and liking most things so far but, today I was downloading a RAW file into aperture and everything else (iphoto, preview) then wanted to move it (master) to my external HD. I got this message while trying to--
Picture could not be saved because write access was not granted.
The folders and files in the external HD were created with my old PC (XP).
When I import the files from the external HD they open up in iphoto & aperture no problem but going the other way it doesn't work for some reason.

The hard drive is formatted in NTFS (the default format for Windows XP/Vista) and OS X only has read access to NTFS volumes. Either reformat in MS-DOS (FAT32) or use a program like Paragon NTFS for Mac to give the Mac full read/write support.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
