Transferring images from Win 10 PC to external hard drive. Confused about actual file locations vis a vis PICTURES LIBRARY



I'm a photographer. I want to transfer my image files and video files from my IdeaPad to a new external 1TB hard drive.

I understand, i think, how to copy the Pictures folder to the new ext drive.

But what about images that I have in folders that are not nested under Pictures folder. They might be on Desktop, or under Documents or Downloads. Does moving the Pictures Library automatically move all the image files and keep them within their original folders?

Also, will Pictures Library recognize image files with extensions of .raw, .png , ACDSee, GIMP ?

thanks in advance
