I have 9 collections totaling 188 photos synced to the cloud. However, if I select "All synced photographs" in the catalog, I have 599 photos. Some of those were synced from Lightroom Mobile and some are photos from collections that were previously synced but are no longer synced. I have searched and searched for an answer to this to no avail--How do I remove these 411 unwanted files from the cloud without deleting them from Lightroom?

Thanks.

So, select All Synced Photographs and then remove them one at a time? No way exclude actual synced collections?

You could select the collections you want to keep, select the photos inside them, then select the All Synced Photographs collection. Go to Edit menu > Invert Selection and then hit delete. That should delete anything not in one of the collections.

Thanks, Victoria. I'll give that a try.

Instead of Delete I selected Remove from All Synced Photographs. That did the trick. Thanks.
