I just read an article about the new Adobe Photoshop cs and Jasc’s Paint Shop Pro 8. Apparently they both have added this new code which, when opening an image, scans it for certain points which can identify the image as a currency. It’s written by US, UK and Canadian officials on counterfeiting. So now, every time you open or scan a picture it has to take a little extra CPU power to make sure you’re not printing your own bills. There is however a workaround, if you scan with a different program and paste into the program, it won’t analyse the picture. So really, it’s a completely ineffectual protection against counterfeiting.
