you can simply do that from GUI--> catalogs

in catalogs .. just use the Filters.. like client Name date range, copy Number and click on search..

it will show you the list of imags that are fit for that search ciritria..

you just right click on those images and select expire.

Note:- once you expire those , you can not get them back so make sure you dont need the images permently before you click on expire.
