Script Code:

// How many photos to delete?
// Put a number value, like this
// const maxImageCount = 5896
const maxImageCount = "ALL_PHOTOS";

// Selector for Images and buttons
    checkboxClass: '.ckGgle',
    deleteButton: 'button[title="Delete"]',
    confirmationButton: '#yDmH0d > div.llhEMd.iWO5td > div > div.g3VIld.V639qd.bvQPzd.oEOLpc.Up8vH.J9Nfi.A9Uzve.iWO5td > div.XfpsVe.J9fJmf > button.VfPpkd-LgbsSe.VfPpkd-LgbsSe-OWXEXe-k8QpJ.nCP5yc.kHssdc.HvOprf'

// Time Configuration (in milliseconds)
const TIME_CONFIG = {
    delete_cycle: 7000,
    press_button_delay: 1000

const MAX_RETRIES = 10;

let imageCount = 0;

let checkboxes;
let buttons = {
    deleteButton: null,
    confirmationButton: null

let deleteTask = setInterval(() => {
    let attemptCount = 1;

    do {
        checkboxes = document.querySelectorAll(ELEMENT_SELECTORS['checkboxClass']);

    } while (checkboxes.length <= 0 && attemptCount++ < MAX_RETRIES);

    if (checkboxes.length <= 0) {
        console.log("[INFO] No more images to delete.");
        console.log("[SUCCESS] Tool exited.");

    imageCount += checkboxes.length;

    checkboxes.forEach((checkbox) => { });
    console.log("[INFO] Deleting", checkboxes.length, "images");

    setTimeout(() => {

        buttons.deleteButton = document.querySelector(ELEMENT_SELECTORS['deleteButton']);;

        setTimeout(() => {
            buttons.confirmation_button = document.querySelector(ELEMENT_SELECTORS['confirmationButton']);

            console.log(`[INFO] ${imageCount}/${maxImageCount} Deleted`);
            if (maxImageCount !== "ALL_PHOTOS" && imageCount >= parseInt(maxImageCount)) {
                console.log(`${imageCount} photos deleted as requested`);
                console.log("[SUCCESS] Tool exited.");

        }, TIME_CONFIG['press_button_delay']);
    }, TIME_CONFIG['press_button_delay']);
}, TIME_CONFIG['delete_cycle']);


Now copy and paste the above code and Hit ENTER button. The script will start running upon hitting ENTER key and your images will start to get autodeleted. Do note it takes some time for the process to start and all photos are not deleted at once. It basically automates the process of selecting all images and deleting them. So have patience.
