LightRoom will become the Photographer's tool. It already does most of what Photoshop will do. I see LightRoom and maybe a beefier version of Elements becoming the photographer's tools. Adobe has said that Lightroom will remain a packaged downloadable product.....for the foreseeable future, at least.
Another program that will do a lot of what PS does for a photographer is the Onone suite. It has a lot of PS's features and works with layers. I expect to see them add to the feature set. They are in a good position to grow with photographers. They are photographers.
