You can but it is tedious.. I did the same thing but, luckily, I only had 1GB of space to claim back from G+ photos. I had them set to standard (<2048x) size on auto-upload but when they introduced full-size auto-uploads, it became the default setting and so a couple of my albums backed up at full size without me knowing. To change the size of the ...

Pictures smaller than 2048 x 2048 pixels are ignored and they don't count as used space, only bigger pictures. So you might worry to clear only those pictures that are bigger than that. Source: Free storage - Picasa and Picasa web albums help

You don't need to switch to Google+ (although you should probably start considering doing so - it is clear that most new work is going into Google+ Photos and PicasaWeb is on the way out).
