Hopefully VERY easy one. My gf has an iphone 5 and a windows laptop. She NEVER backs up anything manually and her phone is probably close to full of pictures of her dinner etc. What we know IS full is her icloud account and her phone keeps telling her.

She (we) logged onto the icloud website and actually also downloaded the windows control panel and it shows that all of her 5gig storage is used and I see a backup of 4.95gig from her phone and a small back up from her ipad.

What we are both failing to work out is how on earth do we access the photos on the back up and erase the ones she no longer wants in the cloud?

I cannot seem to do this relatively basic step??
