What is the best way to move 16,000+ photos from Mac to external drive? I tried moving Library 1, it seems like it’s still there.

When you move a file to an external drive, it copies it so the original is still on your Mac. Have you checked the external drive to see if it's there?

Yes, it is in my external drive. I tried to make new iPhoto Libraries. Not sure if I did it correctly.
How do I dispose of the moved file? Since I share all photos on all devices, I'm bursting at the seams. What would you suggest?

Once you are happy that your Photos Library is on the external drive and working correctly, you can delete it from your Mac.

I don't share my photos with other devices, so I can't advise how it would work with an external drive. Obviously you would have to have the drive connected to your Mac, but whether shared photos from other devices would go to the Library on that drive, I couldn't say.
