Default Help with cleaning up storage

So when I go into the storage on my phone it says 4.5gb of pictures on the internal storage but I have a 64gb memory card and save them to the card. I know some programs like IG and fb will default to internal and I see those folders when I go to ES file explorer.

My problem is that there are only a handful of such photos and I can't figure out where these so called 4.5gb of photos are? Are they in a hidden directory or something? I'd like to clear up some of the storage on the phone as it tells me there's only 500mb available

Connect your phone to the pc and go into your internal storage and move content to a folder on your pc or the ext SD card.
It's faster and neater.
