Simplest way is to drag selection box over the images and then hit the 'Delete' button.
I would advise to save the workbook before doing this though, just in case.

the vba macro deleted all objects on the sheet, even if they were in cell a1.  I would like to delete
all objects that are in cells A6 to L1000 range.

Have a look here:

http://p2p.wrox.com/pro-vb-6/47491-clearing-drawing-objects-given-excel-range.html
Sub testit()
WipeOffRng Selection
End Sub

Sub WipeOffRng(WipeRange As Range)
Dim isect As Range
Dim wkSheet As Worksheet
Dim Shp As Shape
Dim rngShp As Range

    ' Set the worksheet
    Set wkSheet = WipeRange.Parent

    ' Loop through every shape
    For Each Shp In wkSheet.Shapes

        ' Dtermine the block range
        Set rngShp = Range(Shp.TopLeftCell, Shp.BottomRightCell)

        ' Test for any sort of overlap
        'If Not Intersect(WipeRange, rngShp) Is Nothing Then
        ' Test for fully inside

        Set isect = Intersect(WipeRange, rngShp)
        If isect Is Nothing Then

            Else
            Shp.Delete

        End If

    Next Shp

End Sub

If you don't want to select the range before hand, then modify this:
Sub testit()
WipeOffRng Selection
End Sub

to this:

Sub testit()
WipeOffRng Range("A6:L1000")
End Sub
