It will still stay available for streaming via iTunes in the Cloud. This alone can free up tons of hard drive space. For example, I have lots of old photos and videos from college and high school. When I want to access them, I can simply log in to Dropbox from anywhere, or use the app on my iPhone or iPad.
On the Mac, you can dictate what folders sync from Dropbox and are stored locally on your Mac. By default, anything you put in Dropbox will be stored locally. You can access selective sync settings by choosing Preferences and then hitting the Accounts button. As you can see in the photo above, I have my photo backup disabled from Dropbox on my Mac. My only advice would be to make sure you have a complete backup of your photo library before enabling iCloud Photo Library.
I ended up with a lot of duplicates and some folks have reported albums going missing. That being said, there are millions of happy iCloud Photo Library users out there.
Just be sure to prepare, in the event that something does go awry. To enable it, just launch the Photos app on your Mac, choose Photos in the top navigation and then Preferences. Under the iCloud section, simply check the box for iCloud Photo Library. Then just make sure the sub-option for Optimize Mac Storage is also selected. Hat tip to Eric in the comments who pointed out that remembering to empty your trash periodically is important.
