Default foreign currency & photoshop

I am working on a travel page and wanted to add a picture of the money we used. (Canadia) When i go to import the photo into photoshop it won't let me because of currency rules, anyone experience this? Any suggestion on how I can add a photo to my scrapbook page?

TIA

No suggestions, but this is so interesting (and a little disconcerting) !! I've never heard of photoshop rejecting a photo.

So Photoshop is policing your photos? Creepy!


Maybe try taking a picture of you holding the money to add other things to the photo so it doesn't look like you are making a counterfeit bill. You can always then try extracting it after it's been imported.

I haven't heard of this either but I never thought to take a photo of currency.

I think it's a neat idea for when you've travelled somewhere and the currency is different (I must admit to being partial to our coloured bills, I just look for purple and know it's a ten, blue is a 5, 20 is green and 50 is red (which I never have, lol)).

My husband went to Canada last year and took a pic of him holding a 10 bill. I thought it would be fun to show the money in a page of his trip....I've tried cutting the pic to show only a little of the money but it still won't let me.

I would try another source. I just opened up Canadian currency in PS with no issues. Either that or take a screen shot. If something is going to be restricted, it doesn't surprise me that it would be currency due to counterfeit issues.

hmmmm, now you have me wanting to give it a try. Granted all I have in my wallet at the moment is a loonie.

That's so strange, I've never heard of this. Have you opened it in another program (like word) and saved it as a pdf to see if you can open the pdf in Photoshop and use the photo? Sometimes I have issues with photos not being able to be used and I just have to save it in a different program and viola it works! Don't know why, but it does that some times.

Um, wow! I totally didn't know this was a thing. But apparently, it's been a part of Photoshop since CS. The even weirder thing? Adobe doesn't make the code that blocks the money. It's made by a banking committee. The Adobe forum has more details on the currency block and suggestions.

I never thought of that and had no idea Photoshop could do that. I hope you find a solution. Let us know when you figure it out.

Thanks for sharing this! That is so strange. I wonder if it would block old money - like if you had a confederate bill, or old Chinese coins?

This article suggests opening the picture in another program and saving it as an illustrator or pdf file.

Yes, I've had this problem - back in the day when I did Sticky Learnings with Heather Roselli, Photoshop had problems with US money - never tried other countries. I don't remember how I got around it for my printable. Or maybe I just didn't do that idea. haha.

The same thing happened to me when I tried to copy some English pounds a few years ago. PS wouldn't even let me add a photo of the money in my layout. After doing some research, I could have sent a letter asking for permission, but that would have been too much time involved for just a layout. Plus, I was afraid that TSA would target me as a counterfeiter and not let me into England.
