Are the C: and D: drives partitions or are they separate physical drives?
Did you defrag the C: drive after the massive move of files from it to the other drive?
Theoretically, the only time a lot of pictures files would slow down your computer would be when you were attempting to access the files or folders containing them, or when these cause another application (say your AV or some picture utility) to read and process a larger than needed number of files. If moving the files to a separate storage drive (D:) did not make a noticeable difference, the problem may well be caused by something else, so review the "slow computer checklist" to see if there may be a step there that would make sense.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
