How to change your lightroom CC user?

Hi, I am starting a new foray into Lightroom, but I have one adobe ID is through my work.

I am always very hesitant to mix work and personal files (god knows what is in some of these photos!). However if I do decide to proceed, is there a way to transition an existing catalog to a new user ID should I cease working for my current employer?

Some day I might want to create a personal Adobe ID and use that moving forward, and I don't want my lightroom account held hostage in that situation. Super new user, so sorry if this is a dumb question...Thanks!

As long as you sync everything back to the desktop catalog, you'll be perfectly safe. Worst case scenario, you'd wipe the cloud contents on the old Adobe ID and then sign in with your new Adobe ID and let photos sync back to the cloud from the desktop.
