Is 700,00 jpgs too many for a WordPress site.?

Question

I am helping a customer with a website( uses WordPress ) that is very slow to load and sometimes times out or does not respond.

I notice they have 692,264 jpgs in /home/xxxx/public_html/wp-content/uploads/ .

Is this too many ? Maybe that many jpgs is overloading WordPress.?

[rootvpsnewbie ~]# ls -lh /home/xxxx/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/ |grep jpg |wc
289628 2696652 22644222

[rootvpsnewbie ~]# ls -lh /home/xxxx/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/ |grep jpg |wc
289607 2696463 23109003

[rootvpsnewbie ~]# ls -lh /home/xxxxx/public_html/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/ |grep jpg |wc
113017 1017153 8535518

Total 289628 + 289617 +113019 =` 692,264


Total disk space for website is 17 GB

[rootvpsnewbie ~]# du -d 1 -h /home/xxxx/public_html/ |grep G

17G /home/xxxx/public_html/wp-content

Is the website just too big , with too many files ?
