I recently made a new Adobe account (college account) and I would like to put the photos on my old Lightroom Classic to my new one. How can I do this?

In LR Classic just logout from your old account (in Prefs, all the way to the right), then log in to your new account. All Collections should now start to sync to your new account.

I don't have two accounts so I can't try it myself, but as Lightroom Classic can only sync one catalog to the cloud, I assume that a catalog can also only be synced to one account at a time. So while this may work, it might break the sync of the first account.

I don't see a "logout" option or a "login" option in preferences?

I think you need to check out from creative cloud and sine in again from the Creative Cloud and clean all cash files
If you still have problems
Uninstall and clean all cash files

Nathaniel,

Please go to www.adobe.com and log in with the same Adobe ID with which you are signed in when you received the message. Click on the Manage Account link. Verify your subscription is showing as active and has not expired.

That looks ok.  That account should not be giving you an error like the image you posted above. 

If you are still getting the error, sign out of the Adobe Creative Cloud app. Restart your computer and then sign in again.  Does Develop now work?
