DeNoise effectiveness, trial version updates overwriting production versions, upgrade policy

I’ll break this mini-rant down into the three sections above and link them in below. All three are intertwined in this scenario.

  1. DeNoise effectiveness going up/down on version changes. See here

  2. installing a new (trial) version overwrites the non-trial version (without asking). See here

  3. software upgrade renewals on some, but not all pkgs no longer feasible. See here

Conclusions: Topaz Labs software upgrade paths no longer make any sense in my case. EOL.
