How can I filter the grid view to exclude photos in collections?

I need to filter the "all Photos" Grid view to exclude photos in Collections, or alternatively stated, to show ONLY photos NOT in a collection.  I can't find any way to do that ... and here's why I need to:  I have recently scaned almost 3,000 family print photos (pre-digital prints, some almost 100 years old), and my primary task is to get them into a set of Collections.  I can drag a single shot or a group into a collection, but then I need for it not to be in the "All Photos" view ... as I work my way through the process.  There doesn't seem to be a filter to do that -- or can I create one?  If I can't create one, any suggestions about a "work-around?"  ... maybe assign a color and then filter the color out?  Something like that?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Gary

Hi Gary,

 

Interesting plan, I also have bunches and bunches of family images. Maybe 700 from the 10s through the 60s. 

OK here's what I'd do: give every image a label, say Red. Now, every image that goes in a collection that label is removed. Now, when you search for red images, the ones without red will not be there. 

Would that work for you?

Create a smart collection as shown below. (If your primary language is not English, then you may want a different collection of letters)

A complication is that if your photos is in a Publish Service, this may not work. So, modify the smart collection as follows:
