I want to remove Adobe Creative Cloud from my iMac - it is annoying and i don't use it.

I want to keep LR6 and not interfere with its operation in in any way.

If I use the adobe program to remove Adobe Creative Cloud will that affect LR6 in any way?

If you do not have an active subscription. The LR6 should be safe to run without any of the subscription products installed. Adobe Creative cloud is the Application manager, It is only required for subscription products.
