When I switch on iCloud photos, will it keep all my images on my iMac or does the process involve the files uploading, being deleted on the iMac, and then them being downloaded to the iMac. It seems a crazy way to work that way, but crazier things do happen.

Absolutely not. When you upload to iCloud the originals stay on your Mac. It's other devices they then get downloaded to - but only if the devices are set up normally and not prevented from doing so.

Thanks for that.  I won't be ticking the optimise button on my iMac. I was curious if the originals from my iMac Photos library would be uploaded to iCloud and then downloaded again to my iMac - which you have confirmed won't happen. I suppose it would only have been an issue if my massive upload gets interrupted/messed up.
