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)
