Here is my Activity code

public class MainActivity extends Activity {
private static int RESULT_LOAD_IMG = 1;
String imgDecodableString;

@Override
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
}

public void loadImagefromGallery(View view) {
// Create intent to Open Image applications like Gallery, Google Photos
Intent galleryIntent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_PICK,
android.provider.MediaStore.Images.Media.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI);
// Start the Intent
startActivityForResult(galleryIntent, RESULT_LOAD_IMG);
}

@Override
protected void onActivityResult(int requestCode, int resultCode, Intent data) {
super.onActivityResult(requestCode, resultCode, data);
try {
// When an Image is picked
if (requestCode == RESULT_LOAD_IMG && resultCode == RESULT_OK
&& null != data) {
// Get the Image from data

Uri selectedImage = data.getData();
String[] filePathColumn = { MediaStore.Images.Media.DATA };

// Get the cursor
Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query(selectedImage,
filePathColumn, null, null, null);
// Move to first row
cursor.moveToFirst();

int columnIndex = cursor.getColumnIndex(filePathColumn[0]);
imgDecodableString = cursor.getString(columnIndex);
cursor.close();
ImageView imgView = (ImageView) findViewById(R.id.imgView);
// Set the Image in ImageView after decoding the String
imgView.setImageBitmap(BitmapFactory
.decodeFile(imgDecodableString));

} else {
Toast.makeText(this, "You haven't picked Image",
Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();
}
} catch (Exception e) {
Toast.makeText(this, "Something went wrong", Toast.LENGTH_LONG)
.show();
}
}
}

For checking manual permissions for API level 23 and above i use this code.

public static final int MY_PERMISSIONS_REQUEST_READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE = 123;

public boolean checkPermissionREAD_EXTERNAL_STORAGE(
            final Context context) {
        int currentAPIVersion = Build.VERSION.SDK_INT;
        if (currentAPIVersion >= android.os.Build.VERSION_CODES.M) {
            if (ContextCompat.checkSelfPermission(context,
                    Manifest.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE) != PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                if (ActivityCompat.shouldShowRequestPermissionRationale(
                        (Activity) context,
                        Manifest.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE)) {
                    showDialog("External storage", context,
                            Manifest.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE);

                } else {
                    ActivityCompat
                            .requestPermissions(
                                    (Activity) context,
                                    new String[] { Manifest.permission.READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE },
                                    MY_PERMISSIONS_REQUEST_READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE);
                }
                return false;
            } else {
                return true;
            }

        } else {
            return true;
        }
    }

showDialog()

public void showDialog(final String msg, final Context context,
            final String permission) {
        AlertDialog.Builder alertBuilder = new AlertDialog.Builder(context);
        alertBuilder.setCancelable(true);
        alertBuilder.setTitle("Permission necessary");
        alertBuilder.setMessage(msg + " permission is necessary");
        alertBuilder.setPositiveButton(android.R.string.yes,
                new DialogInterface.OnClickListener() {
                    public void onClick(DialogInterface dialog, int which) {
                        ActivityCompat.requestPermissions((Activity) context,
                                new String[] { permission },
                                MY_PERMISSIONS_REQUEST_READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE);
                    }
                });
        AlertDialog alert = alertBuilder.create();
        alert.show();
    }

in your activity check like this.

if (checkPermissionREAD_EXTERNAL_STORAGE(this)) {
            // do your stuff..
        }

And don't forget to add onRequestPermissionsResult.

@Override
    public void onRequestPermissionsResult(int requestCode,
            String[] permissions, int[] grantResults) {
        switch (requestCode) {
        case MY_PERMISSIONS_REQUEST_READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE:
            if (grantResults[0] == PackageManager.PERMISSION_GRANTED) {
                // do your stuff
            } else {
                Toast.makeText(Login.this, "GET_ACCOUNTS Denied",
                        Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
            }
            break;
        default:
            super.onRequestPermissionsResult(requestCode, permissions,
                    grantResults);
        }
    }

Happy Coding..
