If you are using iCloud, you cannot. iCloud offers synchronization services for photos, not archival storage. So any changes you make on any device using that iCloud photo library will be reflected in iCloud and every other device.


You can archive your photos to a computer or online archive like dropbox or google, and then turn off iCloud photo and delete the photos. But iCloud is a sync service only.
