"You don't have permission to save changes to this file"

When I try to save an edited photo (literally all I did was just crop it a bit) I get this error message. It exactly says: "Try saving a copy instead. It looks as though you don't have permission to save changes to this file."

I tried saving the photo as a copy but I got the exact same message. I'm an administrator. What can I do to fix this?
