I moved thousands of images from iPhoto to another user account, and now I don't have permission to view some of the images.
So, I ask: Is there a way change the permissions for multiple files on OS X 10.6.8 instead of one by one?

Yes you can. You can do that using simple terminal commands. For example if you want to change the permission of all files in photo folder that ends in .jpg, go to applications-->utilities--->Terminal and type
chmod 777 /Users/$home/Photos/*.jpg
or to do all files in the folder, type
chmod 777 /Users/$home/Photos/*
