Lr 6.13 will be out in a week. LR7 and Classic CC are subscription based. Been using Lr since 2007. What alternatives are there?

I am really getting tired of all this.

So we now have:

Lightroom CC + 1TB Cloud - $10/month

Lightroom CC + LIghtroom Classic CC + Photoshop CC + 20GB Cloud - $10/month

LR CC + LR Classic CC + PS CC + 1TB Cloud - $20/month

Pretty obvious: #1 if you use the cloud, #2 if you have TB of images and use PS, #3 if you want both.

And no option at all if you don't use the cloud and don't use Photoshop.

So what will you do?

Continue to use Lightroom 6 until there's either a compelling reason to switch to the Photography bundle or until I buy equipment that 6.x doesn't support.

Since I'm happy with my current equipment, it's highly likely that Adobe will get zero of my money for a long time, whereas if LR 7 were available in a perpetual license, I'd probably upgrade within weeks of launch.
