What is the best way to delete pages without causing 404 errors?

Just wondering. About 1/5 of my images are unattached and not currently in use to to retired and dated posts, updated photos, and indexes that have been updated. Does this affect SEO in any way? I realize they take up space. What is the best way to delete them without causing 404 errors?

Thanks.

    The cuetimes listed on this page are functional while the live broadcast continues and also once Youtube has finished processing the public broadcast. Processing time varies between 6-24 hours. During this period the clip is viewable in full but the cuetimes cannot be relied on.
