I have never used Lightroom but I have acces to it with my Adobe license. So I figure I would give it a try.
However when I start Lightroom (I have never used it with my account so I have no precedent storage or configuration) the "Import photo" is not available (it is in grey). When I search on File, "Add pictures" is also in grey.
I have checked, Lightroom is included in my license pack, so I should have access. I have deinstalled then reinstalled it, and also log out/log in but it still doesn't work.
Does anyone have encouter the same problem?

Cloud storage of synced documents and image storage are two subtley different types of storage. I would check with your Adobe License Admin to see if they can flip the switch for you. Your understanding is correct. Lightroom uploads and works from the cloud but can be configured to work from disk as well - but the cloud component is essentioal. Classic works from your local disk.
If your license is corporate or education based, known as a Federated license, it may not have access to 'Services' which means access to the Lightroom Cloud storage. Without access to services, the [Add Photos] button will not be active on the Lightroom Desktop version (currently 4.4) You can contact your license administrator at your organization and ask to have services enabled on your instance.
If this is not possible for you then I would check your Creative Cloud Desktop App for the possibility of installing Lightroom Classic (currently 10.4) which does not requre any cloud storage to function fully.
Yes my license is corporate. However I do have some files stored on the Adobe Cloud so it looks like I have access to the cloud included in my license ?
If I understand correctly, with Lightroom I cannot work on pictures on my computer, only on those that I put on Adobe Cloud. And with Lightroom Classic I can work directly from pictures stored in my computer ?
