Adobe is watching you?

Either this is, ironically, a photoshopping of Photoshop, or Adobe Photoshop has some very clever and cool recognition technology built in.

banknote detection is a pretty common feature. many colour photocopiers have it too.

I don't think it is a photoshop of a photoshop. I have seen the same thing somewhere else before......

Dizzy I'm surprised at you! That's a well known thing, been in there for several versions.

How the stupid US govt thinks this will help stop counterfeiting I do not know, there are plenty of non US based image editors!!

Don't use Photoshop, never have. I use Gimp. Also never scanned a note.*shrug*

Huh, when I tried it with a BoE promisary note it asked me how many, but pointed out it wasn't worth the paper it would be printed on!

It uses a Counterfeit Deterrence System (CDS) - more info here.

Similarly, colour photocopiers look for the EURion constellation on banknotes.

I'm sure it is simply a public service action on the part of Adobe.

Just protecting the punters from using fake rolled up bank notes for their night time nasal activities.

The whole experience is enhanced by using the genuine product. So I'm told.

So Adobe do not want the business of firms that print banknotes? Oh. OK.

Would it baulk at Monopoly money, too?
