Lightroom has a feature called publish services. There you can setup collections (published folders) of photos, which will be published to a folder with preset export settings. Changing a photo which is part of such a collection will update the exported photo at the next time that collection gets published. Especially those collections can be set to include photos automatically (published smart folder). E.g. my collection Family includes all photos tagged Family and rated with three or more stars.

As there won't be any perpetual licenses for future Lightroom software nor longterm support of the recent Lightroom, I am looking for an alternative preferably with perpetual license and without the tendency of trying to cloud all the users work.

Are there any other photo managers with a feature similar to the described publish services?
