I have photos in the Image Library that I no longer need. How can I delete some of these photos? Do these unwanted/outdated photos take up disk space?

HOW DO I DELETE OLD IMAGES:
Open your file manager, located under your URL on the page editor in the upper right corner of your page editor. You can elect to view your files using thumbnails using "Browse" at the top of the page. Select image or file not needed and delete using the delete command at the top of the page. Deleting an image that is publish will result in a blank spot on your website page.

I"m sorry, I have no computer knowledge..  I need to delete images from the image library.   The only way I know how to access them is to "pretend" i am going to upload an image from the image library,  but once i highlight them as to "pretend" to upload I can not access the delete button.

Using the webpage editor, select the URL in the upper right corner of your screen > Select File Manager > Select the item you're wanting to delete from the list > press the delete key or use the garbage can icon to delete the item.

Hello Peg, 

I do apologize, I do not see a photo gallery on the site. If you are looking to delete an image off your website, access the editor and the page the image is on, select the image and hit backspace on your keyboard or the trash can icon from the top menu. If you want to delete it from the file manager you can access your file manager and locate and click on the image the select delete from the options in the top left.
