Uploaded "orphains" cannot be identified. They are visible in "All pictures", but not flagged as such (nor or those belonging to an album flagged as such).

+1 for request to find orphaned photos, matching metadata but not in a selected folder.

This feature was released in Lightroom CC 2.2 (Desktop) launched yesterday. 

In the search bar type: "Album: Not in any album"

Enjoy

Hi Bill,
It will only work on the desktop app at this time. Have you upgraded LR CC to the latest version? If you have you should be able to type "Album: Not in any album" in the search bar.

Hello Richard. I did check my macbook and have LR CC 2.2 loaded. My steps taken ... went into “All Photos” and entered what you told me to enter and still do not see photos that are not in an album. What am i doing wrong?

What happens if you just type "Not"? Does the autocomplete offer Not in Album as an option?

Success ...... many thanks. Just keyed in “not” and I saw the “Not in any Album” show up. Moved a couple of photos and re-checked and the total changed. A stretch here but is there a way to show all photos labeled “Not in any Album” for each such photo when we pull up “info”. Thanks again .... at least a start. Love the product and features. Hopefully print facility will be there soon.

Not yet, but I'll pass that on as a feature request. Glad we got you back to getting results.
