If I erase/move original image files will it affect the images in my Photos app on my iMac?

I'm looking to move all of my images files (which take up over 200 gigs of space) from my iMac onto an external drive. I'm just wondering if it will affect my Photos library. Or does Photos copy that image and create a new file once I import it into the library and is therefore unaffected?
Thanks
