I'm sure this has been asked many times before but I'm obviously not using the correct search words.

I have downloaded all my media files from my website to a folder in 'pictures' to use in 'Gramps' (family history software) but I can't move them to the intended destination as I don't have 'permission'.

I've opened nautilus as root and tried changing the group permission to 'read and write' but it immediately reverts back to 'read' only.

I'm using 18.04 LTS - what do I need to do to change the group permissions?
