It would be great to be able to filter for sync'ed images.

Two reasons:

- I often want to make sure I have sync'ed the best image(s) and I would like to compare them to non-sync'ed similar iamges

- I want to go through my folders and delete images that I no longer need, or should not have kept in the first place, and I want to make sure I do not delete sync'ed images.

 

There is a cumbersom way to do it but to be somewhat efficient it needs an available unused label. See https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic-discussions/filter-for-non-synced-images/m-p/124867...

I agree, it would be useful to have a simple, direct way of filtering them.

I agree it would be useful to have the contents of All Synced Photographs accessible via filters and smart collections and to plugins.

 

Unfortunately, the contents of All Synced Photographs aren't directly available to plugins, so the Any Filter plugin can't provide the functionality either. (There's a very roundabout, hacky way for a plugin to get the contents that isn't suitable for applications like this.)

I concur - it would be a very useful improvement to the sorting ability

I also would like this feature.

I am often editing in 3rd party apps creating copies of images - and depending where i choose the 'edit in' menu - it can add to a collection that may be synced or not (or if in a folder view)

Therefore end up having several photos not synced because i didnt add them to a synced collection.

The only way to find unsynced photos is by filtering All-synced-photos in the catalog list and then using a combination of either smart collections/quick collections and/or keywords.

A filter to show with synced/unsynced would be much quicker.

I just released a new version of the Any Filter plugin that lets you search for photos that are synced or not synced with the LR Cloud, e.g.

A more complicated example, finding all synced photos that aren't in a synced collection:
