Lightroom is moving towards a subscription based model so you may not want to build your workflow around it. I, for one, is looking for an alternative as I don't like subscription models.Thanks! Does Lightroom have a software version now or its purely via monthly subscription?

You did not mention what camera you are using. Most cameras models comes packaged with some processing s/w.
If you do have some spare cash, maybe consider buying a low cost processing software. I do have Affinity Photo. It is pretty powerful and is a Photoshop (not Photoshop Element) competitor. It cost less than S$70. The only disadvantage is that it does not have a cataloguing function.
