    Class action

    Adobe deserves to be sued for non-disclosure of this technology, which causes a performance hit and removes the ability to manipulate images of money for legitimate marketing reasons. Only after thousands of units of CS had shipped and clients started having problems did they confess. Boo. Hiss. Bad move Adobe.

    Now you know

    Now you know why Photoshop CS is still slow. I tried importing a PDF from the Bureau of Printing and Engraving's official press release -- available from their web site -- and got the message "this application does not support the unauthorized processing of banknote images."

    Gimp, not Photoshop

    Just one more reason to have Gimp installed on your machine. I just scanned a peachy $20 and was surprised
    the scanner didn't complain :-)

    $$ Workaround

    To get $$ into PSCS do the following: open your image of $$ in Preview. Copy the image. Open PSCS and create a 2nd layer. Paste $$ into 2nd layer. Make 1st layer invisible. Voila! $$ in PSCS.

    Another $$$ workaround

    This works in almost any app.

    Hold down the Shift key.

    Press the number "4" key untill you have as much $$$ as you want.
