How to upload photos from my Laptop to ICloud photo library

Dell Inspiron 15 series 3000. OS, Windows 8.1

I have photos on my laptop which I want to upload to Icloud photo library (so I can delete them from my laptop and still access them through www.icloud.com)
I think I must enable Icloud Photo Library? How do I do this on my laptop? What else must I do to upload the photogs?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Note you do need an Apple device as well, such as iPad or iPhone to use the service.  With the Apple device and the iTunes application you create the login and password you need for the iCloud service.
