Lightroom (cloud-based service) has deleted photos on the desktop/mobile apps, as well as video support and batch metadata editing on Android. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.

    You'll learn how to use the Lightroom cloud ecosystem to organize, edit and share your photos. You'll also come to understand the thought processes used by professional photographers when they're editing their own photos, so you can transform your photos quickly and easily. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.

Show photos not in albums?

I don't like to have photos just hanging around unfiled.

Is there a way in Lr Cloud to show only photos not in an album, so I can move them to one?

Yes, desktop only, type album: and then select Not in Any Album from the bottom of the resulting pop-up.

Where should I type "album" ? In the search box?
If I do that I don't see any "not in any album" in the drop down.
Might that be because I am pretty sure mine are all in albums, or am I doing something wrong?
Thanks
You have to type album: (i.e. include the colon) and then scroll down down down to the bottom of the list

I'm obviously missing something basic. Where do you type "album:"? Above posts refer to a "search box", but a search of Victoria's book doesn't yield this phrase in the context given above.

Yes, in the search box BUT it must be in the desktop version of Lr Cloud

Wrong book John. This thread is talking about the cloudy version of Lightroom, which is covered in the Edit Like a Pro book (page 71/102 in the May 2019 release), not your Classic Missing FAQ.

OK, thanks, that clarifies why I couldn't find the search box. It sounds like the cloud version is diverging from Classic more and more as time goes on.

Yep, that's intentional. Classic is focusing on its strengths as a desktop focused app and Cloudy is focusing on making photos available everywhere. There will always be strong editing similarities as they're all based on the Camera Raw engine, but the target audiences are becoming more clearly defined.
