    Using iCloud photos with Windows


    I downloaded iCloud on my PC. I have photos synced to my PC. When I'm in iCloud I can see the photos. But what I don't see is how to add the photos to individual albums. I can do this on my iPhone, and I want to do the same on my PC. Also, on my PC I want to assign faces to individuals. How can I access these features on my PC?

    :)
