If I am storing photos on my Dropbox or Google Photos, can I delete them from my iCloud and still access them through these other apps?

Yes, those services are not connected.

However, once you delete items from iCloud, they'll be deleted from every device you have that uses that same Apple ID. iCloud is a sync services whereas Dropbox and Google Drive are cloud storage that can also be used for backup.

  • Just wanted to note that iCloud is also a cloud storage platform - especially with iCloud Drive – Jackson1442 Jul 19 '17 at 22:41
  • Yes, sort of. I didn't want to muddy the water with that because the 1) OP appears to be a new/inexperienced Apple user and 2) he didn't ask about Drive and I didn't want to cause confusion by adding that part. – fsb Jul 19 '17 at 23:05
