I have 2 photos that never sync.  See below.

  1. I have the latest version of lightroom installed.
  2. I've also tried uninstalling and reinstalling.
  3. I've tried installing a previous verion.
  4. I've tried following the recommended steps below to identify and filter syncying photos but there are no photos syncing when I apply the filter.  See below.

I'm at a loss how to stop or end the sync process or see what it's attempting to sync.





The below did not work or show any syncing photos.


  1. In the My Photos area in the left pane, select the All Photos album.
  2. Switch to the Square Grid view 


    , which displays photos as equal-sized thumbnails along with their flag status, sync status, and rating.
  3. Click the filter 


     icon next to the Search bar to bring up the filter options.
  4. From the filter bar options, choose Sync Status > Syncing. Lightroom now displays only those photos that it is trying to sync.
  5. Press Ctrl+A (Win) or Command+A (Mac) to select all the photos displaying in the grid and then do any of the following:
    • Apply a flag or a star rating to selected photos.

The syncing issue should now be resolved. To check the sync status, click the cloud icon at the upper-right corner.
