Sorry. Not sure what you mean.
What do you mean Source List. Cant see.
I want my entire Library transferring to Icloud so I can see it on other devises like my iPad and my Wifes Macbook etc.
Sorry, after you have done the first eight steps, then open the iPhoto application, then on the left side in the iPhoto application, you will see the word called iCloud, then click on it, then click on Use iCloud.Thank you.
I have clicked on Icloud but where does it say "Use Icloud" ?
I see my shared streams . That is all.
I want to move my entire Library to Icloud and make it the default place for my Library. Not on my Macbook hard drive .
Sorry, it has to sync to your computer. Can you drag all your photos to photo streams?iCloud is still limited with iPhoto right now. For now, you can upload all your photos from the computer at the iCloud beta website:https://beta.icloud.com/Reference for iCloud Photo Library beta:http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT6378
Right now it is a bit complicated. For official photos syncing with iCloud, Apple will get rid of iPhoto and will release the new Photos app next year:

Are you saying it is not yet possible to move my iPhoto Library to Icloud?
If so I have 12,000 photos and 280 Events. Will Stream be able to hold this amount of storage.
Yes, you can, however, right now, it's only in beta until the new Photos app is designed in 2015.
Make sure on your iPad / iPhone, go to Settings app, then tap on iCloud, then tap on Photos, then turn on "iCloud Photo Library (Beta)."
For now, you have to upload your photos from the computer manually at the iCloud beta website below:https://beta.icloud.com/
