Is there a way to filter photos that are not in any collection.

In all synced photos, There should be a way to filter the ones that are not in any collection. it is important, as over the years of using lightroom, many photos were "forgotten" in the cloud and should be deleted, they feature in "all photos" with thousands of other photos, but are not stored in any collection... there should be a way to delete / filter photos that are in the cloud but are not in any collection

Which app are you using? Lightroom Desktop (Cloud-based), the one you've tagged, does have a way of showing photos not in an album, but you're talking about All Synced Photographs, which only appears in Lightroom Classic.

Hi Victoria 
Thank you for your reply.
I am using both the cloud-based version and the classic one (on different devices) 
In a chat with Adobe support team they mentioned this function is not possible... can you please explain how it can be done?
Thanks

In Cloudy's desktop app, type album: in the search bar and scroll to the bottom of the list where it says "Not in any album". That's the easiest way.

Or in Classic, select all of the collections in one go, then select all of the photos inside. And then without deselecting photos, select All Synced Photos and go to Edit menu > Invert Selection. Now the only photos selected will be ones not in collections.

WOW! That's great! I was looking for it for a long time (including several chats with Adobe support) 
Thank you very much Victoria, that's very helpful!
