How to View Check iCloud Photos Online

How can I view my iCloud contents online? I have synced my pictures library on my PC to the iCloud Photo Stream. Is there a way to see all my iCloud content in a web interface, like it's allowed by all other cloud services (such as Skydrive, Google Drive, SugarSync, Dropbox)? It's surprising to find that iCloud doesn't provide this simple feature that every other cloud service does.

View iCloud photos online on iCloud.com

The question asked by an Apple user in 2012 has been answered by Apple's later products.

The iOS 8 and its later version allow you to view iCloud photos online. iCloud Photo Library keeps all your photos in one place, and you can freely access them from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Mac, on icloud.com.

You can sign into iCloud.com from any computer to view all your photos and videos in iCloud Photo Library. You can also use icloud.com to view documents you saved in iCloud Drive.

The only thing you need to do is to turn iCloud Photo Library on or back up your photos in iCloud.

However, if you want to see the photos from iCloud Photo Stream or Camera Roll online, you need to jump to the second method.
