I'm currently using a school account to access Adobe programs. In the creative cloud Apps section, there is Lightroom under the Available in your plan. So I downloaded it and tried to use it. But whenever I open Lightroom, it's asking for me to start my free trial. It's in the plan but it's asking me to pay for it. How do I fix this?
Hey @Jihoon31988187obgr. Welcome to the Lightroom Community. I'll help you figure this out. I've checked the account you're signed in to the community with & I couldn't find an active subscription to Creative Cloud apps or Lightroom.
As you've stated, you possibly have an entitlement via your school/institute; an IT team or Administrative body must've been handling your subscription. Please check with your institution's IT/administration to understand the entitlements available through their licensing agreement.

Let me know if this helps.
Your school account won't include Lightroom unless your school allows you to create an individual account with your school email. Lightroom stores your images in a cloud and therefore requires an individual login. However, you can use Lightroom Classic because it stores images on a local hard drive.
