Image cannot be opened - no permission to open

I have recently come up against a problem opening images in Preview on a Macbook Pro I have had for around 12 months. I'm not sure what's wrong and when I view 'get info' cannot see a reason why I cannot open the images.
Every image show me as having read and write permissions. I am therefore confused.
Here's the error message:
"The file xxxxxxxxx could not be opened because you do not have permission to view it.
To view or change permission select item in Finder and choose File > Get Info."
When I do this I cannot see any reason for the problem. The info says I have read and write access and that the image will be opened in Preview'.
Any ideas what could have cuased this to start happening on seemingly every image I now try to open?

Have you tried Disk Utility to repair permissions recently? Sometimes permissions get messed up and need to be repaired.- Jake
