Default Photoshop spying on us? How the ?!#% does it know a $20 bill

Ok I took some pics of a $20 bill from actually a distance for a lens test where the $20 bill only cover like 1/10th of the frame and when I open it in Photoshop it says --

"This application does not support the printing of banknote images - You can open and edit this image but you will not be able to print it as is. ........"

How does it know a $20 random in a picture not even flat??

It's got to be clever prigramming if they can detect a photo of a $20 bill, but regardless of whether or not this is true, it's not spying. It's only recognition and disabling the print function. Nobody knows that you took this shot except you and the people in this forum.

Spying would notify public authorities and they'd be crashing down your door.

Interesting though as it's tough to recognize a bill folded like that. I wonder if I could recreate that? Makes me want to try it out and see if it's actually programmed into the software. If so, they did a damn good job of programming! they would have needed to license an OCR providor and recognize everything you work with. This would surely downgrade performance of Adobe and that's reason enough for them to not want to impliment this into their software.

It Does it when you open the jpg file. I opened a hi res-jpg and it does it before you can use the image. Using PS CS2. I used one of those newest 20's btw

This is no BS. Try it.

And is this why PS takes so much computer horsepower because it is looking for a Bill in every image you open. What the $#%!

i opened a file that clearly and neatly showed the three different 20 dollar bills from the recent years right next to eachother, and got no warning. kinda wish i would have sounded cool. but at the same time i dont know why they would care? reproducing that money would be quite a hard job. and a lot of people use currency in their art? so what would that mean for them.

I too doubt the validy of this claim but the OP did say they tried to print, not just open the file.

No it does it the second you open the file. This was a 5d image.

Googled

no offence, but he said that it happened before the image was even allowed to open, and it told him he couldnt print. Also, i hit print and it brought up the print screen fine. mabye it is the white balance though, ill correct it and try opening it again. (its actually a REALLY old shot from my S500 that i had laying around).

I saved your file, opened and printed it with no warning! Maybe their watching you in particular so you better check your back door.
