How to restrict Amazon s3 bucket access permissions for a user

Amazon simple storage or s3 is one of the commonly used cloud storage technology. In Amazon s3 we can create buckets as storage locations. Inside each bucket we can create directories or folders and store objects(files,videos etc). In a normal amazon aws account we can create at most 100 buckets. Also we can set permissions for each bucket. We can create IAM users and restrict bucket access to each users. Such as some users will have access to all the buckets, some will have access to only a few buckets, some will have only read or write or both permissions on buckets. We will see how to do it.
