Adobe is one of those companies that has user-hostile business practices but for which there isn't really any alternative if you're a creative professional (and please don't lecture me about Gimp, which from the name on down exhibits a different sort of user hostility). I use Lightroom Classic to edit photos, and that's it.Adobe was always expensive, but now with subscription bundles (that never end) they've devised new means of extracting money from unwilling buyers. They've also streamed people toward their cloud offerings in an attempt to trap them there as well (and to collect their data, natch). I don't know of a good way out of this.
