I upload images to my iPad when I travel. When I get home I open Lightroom Classic and transfer the images to my external drive. I no longer need them in the cloud. But now I want to clear my measly 100gb of cloud storage and have no way of knowing which files are stored full res on the cloud. It would be great to be able to filter the photos on the web or Lightroom CC by which are stored on the cloud full res via smart previews.

Using Lightroom (Cloudy) on the iPad?

"When I get home I open Lightroom Classic and transfer the images to my external drive"
How?  using Adobe cloud sync?  Copy image to home computer using OS and then Import?

You can do that using the Lightroom Desktop app, using the Filter>Sync Status option. All the full resolution files will be listed under "Synced and Backed Up", whereas smart previews synced from Classic will be listed under "Synced from Lightroom Classic".
