Hi I tried to search for this as I was sure it must have asked before but got no results.
So if I give up my Adobe subscription, i find myself using Photolabs more and more, can I still use some of the modules of Lightroom Classic, and if so which ones.
Although Photolabs is a great raw converter it totally lacks cataloguing functions so I really need something to manage files.

Photo Mechanic 6 can be an alternative to Lr Library if you are giving up on Adobe. The Photo Mechanic DAM (PM6+) is beta now and should be out later this year.

Before giving up on LR you should update to 8.3 and try out the new Texture feature.

Yes, you can still use all modules apart from the Develop and Map modules.
Can you still import new images? And apply keywords? And print them?

Yes, just not go into Develop or Map. New images should be from cameras supported by the version of LR.

You are still allowed to update your version, amazingly enough.
