This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: You should be able to filter which photos are NOT in a folder or album in Lightroom CC

Looking to see if there's a way to sort photos by those that are NOT in a collection.  That way I can easily see which photos haven't been organized.

Great idea.  I have often wished for this also.

Hi Joel,

Just to be clear, you mention collections but posted with the Lightroom CC category. Are you, perhaps talking about Lightroom Classic?

I am using LR CC and would love to be able to locate photos not in galleries. (collections)

So just to clarify, not so much "sort by" as in capture time/filename type sort order, but a way of finding them (like a filter or smart collection)

Actually finding it hard to understand why this much-requested feature didn't make it into the recent version release.

Is there anybody from Adobe who monitors these threads and can respond this (and other) points, or is this forum just a way for us to share our pain with fellow users?

Deep breath...Let it all out ...feeling better already

They read everything, but can't reply to all threads. The number of votes on features help to determine their prioritization, because obviously there's a lot of features we'd like to see added and only a limited number of hours in the day. I will merge this "question" thread into the feature request thread so the votes are combined, although that'll still only make 8 votes...
