Adobe Photoshop Not for Counterfeiting Money

With the economy going downhill and plenty of people becoming unemployed, some companies are already expecting IT experts that lose their jobs to use their skills for wrongdoings (mainly fraud). Other people may think that a photo editing program such as Adobe Photoshop will be the answer to all their problems by letting them print their own money; the US Mint does it, so I guess the US Secret Service won’t mind if you do the same (that was a joke!).

The simple truth of the matter is that Adobe Photoshop is an amazing software tool that in the hands of an expert can be used to perform wonders – that is why you will need a program like Error Level Analyzer to check whether a pic is the genuine article or someone has virtually enhanced it. You can use Photoshop to make it look like you are shaking hands with President Barack Obama, but Adobe Photoshop draws the line at printing your own money.


Imagine this if you will: you get the crazy idea in your head that no one will catch up to you if you Photoshop a $20 bill and use it in a busy supermarket; you spent all day tweaking the image and making sure that you will get something that looks genuine, but when you press the print button you get the following error message:

“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.”

Your get rich fast scheme was halted and you did not even get to be arrested by the Secret Service and spend some time behind bars. Perhaps its is better that the EURion Constellation secret pattern of symbols has prevented you from doing something you might regret.

Now, if you really must fake something, try out Ticket-O-Matic, the online service that lets you generate fake airline tickets. I honestly cannot see the usefulness of this service, but as long as it will take your mind off counterfeiting money, then I’m willing to go along with it.
