Editing software cost

Hello All,

I was looking at photo editing softwares. I am interested in changes to all photos at once. And not interested in changing each photo. Basic editing to fit a Color profile or set a preset etc.

The cost of the editing software is turning out too high for me. 
1) light room is monthly subscription

2) photoshop - not interested.

3) capture one - comes with a one time fee but still is considerably higher.

4) luminar ai (not luminar neo or luminar 4) - considering it. Downloaded a trial and seems the cheapest of the bunch. I am not looking forward to adding skies etc. just some preset to set the mood for photo and then probably a bit fine tuning for few selected shots.

why are editing software so costly ? Esp Lightroom.

Thanks in advance.
