Do unused pictures slow down my site?

I just replaced all my images with smaller ones, to improve my site's speed.

My question is, will having a bunch of unused pictures in my Asset Library affect my load speed or anything else in any way? I'm loath to delete my old pics in case there's something I've missed, and with inventory pics, there's no way to tell.

Thanks.

No, they won't affect site performance. They'll only affect the speed at which you can view the Asset Library when logged on.

Performance will be affected by things like the number of blocks in a section, the number of on a page, the number of pages on a site (smaller numbers = better performance).
