A newbie to stamp collecting needing help and advice on stamps I have.

During the summer, my partner's grandmother passed away and we found that she had a few envelopes with an array of stamps in; these were from various countries/places (UK,USA, Australia, New Zealand, Asia etc...). Neither of us or our families know anything about stamps and I've tried to research to see if any are rare or special but I don't believe any are. I basically wanted to share the stamps on here to see if anyone was interested in them or if they could tell me how much bundles of stamps go for and where to sell them (I was going to use Ebay etc...).
I've attached pictures of sections, may be hard to see details but can take a closer shot if need be. The countries vary, there's the UK, USA, New Zealand, Asian (UAE, Malaysia etc...), Australia and perhaps even more.

It is always hard to judge a value on someone's collection but the normal way you seem to have already taken.
I hoards of Stamps just like yours, my daughter will probably ask the same as you, when she inherits my collection? But those which are of value have been photographed and given the reason why with a Word doc.
To value Stamps the person needs to see them as there are so many things which can make a valuable collection but if you have loads of them which have not been identified is a very hard task and as you probably have found very time consuming to sort out and research.
You could try and find a local stamp club or as you have said group them together by Country and try and sell on Ebay or other internet site. At the moment there is a slow bidding due to the Virus so you have everything against you with Auction sites. Try not to rush your decision though.
I wish you well and take care.
