Can I DELETE files on my computer but KEEP them on my Time Capsule?

I have a mac that is getting a little old and running too slow because I have thousands of pictures on it. I want to put the pictures and other files on time capsule and delete them from my computer, but I would die if the pictures got deleted when my time capsule got full. Can I ensure files won't be deleted?

Also if my pictures are just on the time capsule, will it be easy for me to view them, or will i have to transfer them back onto my computer to see them?

    No, impossible to "ensure." You should have more than one backup of anything that would be so important to you.
