Default Moving posted pictures to album, gallery(?)

I've reached my limit and it's been suggested that I move my pictures into an album I created to clear up space.
OK, album created but what's next? Do I go to every post and gather the pictures up or is there a pile/file of them lurking somewhere and a simple send to button I can push?
I've been using photobucket but now have an imgBB account.

If you kept a local copy of each image that you previously uploaded, then you can simply upload those images to the new imgBB album.

If you have not kept a local copy, you have to find the place you used an image and copy that image from the original location & place it in the new imgBB location. This will mean that each image you place in the album has a new address.

Once you have your image in the new location, you have to FIND & EDIT each post that uses that particular image & change the link address (in the post) so it points to the location where the image is now stored.

If your pics are in ImgBB, you can move them to an album (or several albums, whatever suits you for your organization of your pics) within ImgBB. This is merely a matter of their organization within ImgBB. It doesn't change the URLs of the pics; there is no need to edit individual posts; the links will still be the same.

If this is all within ImgBB, it won't free up any space.

If you're talking about moving pics from Photobucket to ImgBB, then yes, you will indeed have to edit each post to change the existing Photobucket link to the new ImgBB link.

This can be a little tedious, but how many pics are you talking about? When I moved my pics from Photobucket to ImgBB, I had over 2,000 pics to move, and around 10,000 posts that needed to be edited.

I now have them in 93 albums in ImgBB.

Kinda more convoluted advice. .jpg vs .png ,< photbucket saved photos >, takes up more space when the .png shows on the end of the picture fie. I convert mine before saving them on my external home drives.

I don't run windows operating system so no good suggestions by me for a. free converter.

I know imgbb also converts uploaded images to .jpg files also. When you use their site.

png pics are much better than jpg ones; they retain fine detail better. I notice this most on pics which are maps; eg: route maps of rides. With jpg pics, writing (place names, etc), marked routes, other roads, general geographical features, etc all become fuzzy and colours bleed into each other.

This doesn't happen with png pics. Yes, they take up more space, but is this really a problem? ImgBB (and no doubt other photo hosting sites) offers plenty of storage space. I currently have 3,857 pics in ImgBB, many of them as png files (which ImgBB hasn't converted to jpg, BTW). How many pics do you need to store?
