Photos not visible in iMessage (Big Sur)

Normally, if someone sends me a photo or video via iMessage, The file show sup and can be played, saved, etc. from iMessage. Since I upgraded my laptop to Big Sur, I have lost that ability, but only on the laptop. Any attempt to view the photos results on one of two error messages: 'iMessage doesn't have permission to access ###.jpeg'. OR 'File not found'. I can't even save the file to edit in Photos or Lightroom.

Accessing the photos still work perfectly on my desktop (Catalina) and iPhone (14.1). I upgraded to the latest version of Big Sur with no effect.

Anyone have any suggestions or insights?

Thanks.
