Error access file on web server

Hi,
I am running IIS 7 on server 2008.
I have a directory under inetpub that has some photos in it.
Some of the photos are not accessible via HTTP.
The error I get is below (see attached screen shot).

However, if I go into the properties of one of these photos and check the security tab, I see that the "Users/Web" group is not in the list (Admins are and so is SYSTEM).
If I add in the "Users/Web" group, then the photo shows up fine using HTTP.
So, my question is this:
What's the fastest way for me to bulk change all of the photos by adding in "Web/users" group to all of them. Doing it using Explorer one at at time isn't an option.
Is there some handy-dandy Powershell command to do this?

Next question. What happens if I add in the "Web/Users" group to a photo that already has the "Web/users" group on it? Will it be added in twice or will the 'second' add just be ignored?

Thanks

Add the "web/users" group to the security for the folder that contains the pictures and let it inherit the permissions.

Duplicate permissions are ignored.

The folder actually already has that group but for some reason it's not inheriting. Is there something special I have to do to make it inherit?

From the security tab, hit the Advanced Button near the bottom. There is a check box for allow inheritance.
