Is there an easy way to turn a photo 'ible into a step by step 'ible? Answered

Hi folks.
I have made some alterations & additions to my workshop I want to add either to my "My Little Workshop/Utility Room/Cathouse." 'ible or my "Using recycled or salvaged timber" 'ible, possibly both. 
Is there an easy way to change it from a photo 'ible to a step by step? I did want to add it in last night but life got in the way as usual & by the time I got started it was quite late & to tell the truth I was too tired to really search around the options, I thought I would try to save a bit of time & ask here before I try again this evening.

I had a funny feeling that would be the case, I guess I'll have to do a rethink or forget it altogether.
I don't want to add more pictures to one that already has too many with the current picture format, it takes far too long to scroll down to the text as it is & I really don't want to create a duplicate of an existing 'ible.
What I want to add had to be done in quite a short time period so I didn't have time to take pictures otherwise I would have done a standalone 'ible, it would have made an interesting addition to either of the existing ones however.
Thanks for your help folks.

Maybe your next ible should be "How to use a fisheye lens to capture the glory and grandeur of a TARDIS sized workshop."

The only way this workshop could look large would be through a fisheye lens :-)
With the new bench in place & a new layout I have a total of 14" to move between it & the chest freezer, tumble dryer & larder fridge it shares the room with.
I do however have almost four times the bench space I used to have & almost all the tools are now on the wall meaning I can get to them far easier & have less tool boxes taking up floor, cupboard & shelf space.
I will find a way to add something in even if it means deleting one of the old 'ibles & redoing it as a step by step, I just don't want to have duplicate 'ibles in different formats or long strings of images before the text.

Probably the easiest way is just open up a new ible and cut and paste all the text. If you did not have the original photos tagged in some way, it will be tedious to sort through your image library to add them again.

AFAIK, there is no way to convert any Instructable from one form to another. All you can do is the cut and paste method.
