I also saw your post where you are still using LR vers 6.

This is a great image to test out the capabilities of the latest LR Classic.

I‘d love to - however I believe Adobe stopped offering versions for upfront purchase after V6. And a subscription service, while understandable from Adobe‘s standpoint, is really a deal breaker for me. I feel my image catalogue and selections, ratings etc all would be held hostage by Adobe if I start paying regularly for the right to keep on maintaining it. ....

This is not quite right.

See, eg, https://lightroomkillertips.com/happens-cancel-lightroom-classic-subscription/

Basically, if you stop paying, the Develop and Map modules quit working. I am sure that Photoshop will also stop. You would also not be able to import from a new, unsupported camera.

However the Library with its key words, ratings, etc. keeps working.

If I ever leave Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop, I would also probably leave the Library. I would then save all my keywords, ratings, etc to sidecar files which a good DAM like iMatch will pick up - so I wouldn't use them.

I see. Yeah still would deem it rather cumbersome aswell to wing the LR catalogue with another editing suite!
