I need to locate the images in a Wordpress siteTo me it looks as if they should be in the footer
I have checked everywhere in wp-admin (Pages, Theme, footer etc) and cannot locate them
The reason is that I need to convert their reference links from HTTP to https
See attached image

Can someone please put me out of my misery and give me some pointers as to their location
The image is of the landing page but all pages have the same images at the bottom

Or you can use Source -> View.

Or you  can use a tester like https://WebPageTest.org or similar.

Or you can use Chrome -> Right Click -> Show Image in TAB for an exact URL of an image.

Many different ways to do this.

If you get stuck, provide the URL for a  more specific answer.
Have you looked in the template itself?  They may be hard coded.  Also, what theme?

David:
Yes - I can use developer mode and inspect the URL - no problem
The problem is where to actually locate the images in wp-admin as pages use a lot of includes
It is not like going to an index.php page and viewing the links / CSS reference (which is what I am used to)

Robert:
The theme is GoExplore

The best way to do this is to replace all occurrences of http://your-domain to https://your-domain in your db using some tools e.g:
Search Replace DB
You can download it from github here:

You can do a dry run first without searching/replacing.

Replace your-domain with domain you have.
Do backups first.

Firstly, I suggest installing the plugin "What The File", then loading the page while logged in. A feature appears on the admin bar at the top of the page detecting which templates are making up the page.

Deactivate it after use, to keep your site tidy.

You could also try installing the plugin Really Simple SSL, as that may fix the issue for you.

If neither of those options help, let me know.

Also, it's worth having a look in Appearance > Widgets (and in modern WordPress versions, Appearance > Customize) to see if the footer is coming from there.

For an exact answer, post the URL of your page.

Note: Currently your site is in maintenance mode, so only you can view your site when logged into wp-admin, so if any assistance is required, you'll have to make the site public before anyone can access URLs.
