Great question! This image URI only matter if you have your own smart contract and connect your smart contract onto Opensea. Otherwise, you just have to change the titles of your images to what ever you like (by updating the [ADD_IMAGES_BASE_URI_HERE]). Please note that creating your own smart contract is a bit tricky and costly as well due to the gas fee( lowest would be $700 on a less traffic day)

Got it! Correct me if I am wrong, I already have some NFTs on Opensea and I have initially paid the fees. If I upload it manually I will not be paying gas fees again correct? If I create a smart contract to bulk upload my NFTs then I need to pay those gas fees again?

If you store your nft on IPFS storage, you can change your image data whenever you wish. Yes that's right. If you mint (create) a new token aka (new nft) on your smart contract you will have to to pay the gas fee. Otherwise, you can change the metadata of your nft on the opensea nft website without any fees.
