Photos is a horrible program that just seems to keep getting worse in terms of image management. It’s more concerned with montages and peoples faces than meaningful organization, at least that’s my impression. I haven’t used it other than for backing up iPhone images for a long time, so I’m likely not the best person to ask though.

That said, if you are not working with RAW images, not making panoramic or HDR images in post, there is no reason to get Lightroom. If you need that in the future, get it when you need it. It’s far too much money a year just for image organization. If you get LR with your Adobe CC package by all means use it, but if not I’d look for other solutions if image management and viewing are the only aim.
