How to sort images by file size in Lightroom CC?

In Lightroom CC, I keep being prompted that I'm almost out of storage space.  To fix this, I want to sort my library by file size so I can delete the largest files.  Can anyone help me figure out how to sort my library by file size?

 

Thanks.

There is Lightroom Classic, and there is Lightroom. There is no Lightroom "CC" anymore, so I assume you are referring to Lightroom. There isn't an option to sort images by file size in Lightroom OR Lightroom Classic.

I was talking about the online version, so i guess that is just Lightroom
now. Why no option to sort by file size? Will this ever be added? Seems
like pretty basic functionality. Thanks for any info.

You cannot sort by file size from within the app.

 

The best place to add a feature request is on the following forum, which is monitored by the engineering team:

it has been 3 years and still this extremely basic funciton is not available.  can we please get this added? 

 

when space is running low for cloud storage, the obvious move is to sort by size and remove the largest files that are taking up the most storage, but that is not possible currently, and it's hard not to cynically assume that you're doing this on purpose to make it as hard as possible to work with, to force people to buy more storage space instead of cleaning it out.
