    My storage is full, my photo library is around 4.5GB plus backups etc.

    I want to prevent my photo library from being backed up, as this is taking up the vast majority of storage.

    I am happy to have photo library local on my macbook and manually sync my phone.

    To do this do I just need to switch off photo's in icloud for both devices?

    I switched them off on the macbook and it didn't change the size used in my icloud.

    Yes, you have to turn it off on both devices.

    Ahh found it, there is a disable and delete option inside manage iCloud photos, simply switching it off would of course leave them in the cloud, just not sync or download.
