Perhaps people need education about how license agreements work, and how they differ from ownership.
Exactly! Your comment is 100% on point. I don't know that I have ever owned any software. I've always bought a license to use what someone else owns. It has been that way for as long as I remember.

On a side note: I like the subscription model. I find Adobe's photography plan to be very reasonable and I enjoy the updates that come with it. I know others don't like it, but I do.

Concidentally, I was wondering the same thing only last week: I tweaked the clarity and thought 'Whoa! That's garish. What's happened?" I was not sure if the tool had changed because it was always touted as something that tweaks midtones to improve apparent sharpness, then I wondered if it depends on the starting image in that to get a difference on an image that has good lighting, and good small-detail contrast you need to use it more heavily. But I could not escpe the feeling it was not what it used to do.
Then as soon as I used the texture it immediately felt to me that it was what Clarity used to be like. But maybe there is some auto-suggestion coming in. Whatever is happening, I really like the effect of the texture slider.
I like the texture slider too.
