I downloaded this image from Adobe Stock ( File #: 329573176 ), now Adobe Photoshop will not let me open it. It gives me an error message:
"This application does not support the editing of banknote images. For more information, select the information button below for internet-based information on restrictions for copying and distibuting banknote images or go to www.rulesforuse.org."
This is an odd message considering this image was already manipulated and it's being distributed by Adobe. Another question that arises from this... does Adobe Photoshop secretly scan every image you open?
Adobe Photoshop includes a counterfeit deterrence system (CDS) that prevents the use of the product to illegally duplicate banknotes. Details here:
Jane is correct, but it does seem odd that you download this from Adobe Stock, but can't use it. You would think that they would have screened for that when accepting the image. There are some work arounds, but you will have to Google them.
I agree, Chuck, and have posted on the Adobe Stock forum.
Keep us posted on this, as seems unfair to purchase an image with a pink background, and to not be able to edit. Atleast if was posted as a .png with transparent the image might have some usefullness.
I ran into a similar issue. A few engineers sent me an image of an electrical unit they made and held up half of a dollar bill for scale. I couldn't open the image. Some printers, I've heard also has the ability to detect currency and won't print.
I bought a stock image of money in a bucket and psd wouldn't open it due to counterfeit rules? Can this be turned off? As long as the image is turned, curved, folded, otherwise obstructed, why can't we use it?
I worked around it but it was annoying.
There is no getting around this. You will need to find another inaccurate image to allow Photoshop or other items to utilize this. Scanners, digital printers, etc. will all shut down and not allow any current monetary note with certain elements to be used.
So if Im making a chart of money falling, I can no longer do that? Thats nuts. That means I can't update any of my Finacial graphs.
Hi All, It's very concerning that Adobe now decide what work you can open and what work they wont let you open- This is a photograph for a client, when i try to open it Photoshop will not allow it and gives me a message "this application does not support the printing of banknotes" How dare Adobe interfere with work that is solely the business of myself and my client. What will they next be deeming inappropriate to open
Adobe now decide
As others have said, central banks decided in 2004, not Adobe.
"The CDS technology was commissioned by the Central Bank Counterfeit Deterrence Group (CBCDG), a consortium of central banks from around the world. Adobe has included CDS in Photoshop at the request of the CBCDG."
Is there a way not to display this warning?
Please post the image.
What is the image format?
Can you try saving it as psd in another application?
Does the image contain a bunch of circular shapes?
Sorry. The image contains money.
What is the file format?
Can you open it with Preview (if you work on a Mac), save as a psd and try to open that with Photoshop?
The file format is jpg.
We are currently developing and using automation plug-ins. I have a problem when I get an image that contains money. When I try to process an image that contains money, the plugin is forced to stop.
Is there a way to filter images that contain money?
I suppose one could do a »pre-run« with the opening in a try-clause, but that is probably too crude an approach for you.
Then Photoshop need to seriously improve their code so that this feature makes any sense. I cannot open the below image in Photoshop because it contains bills, even though you can see at most like 25% of each bill.
