PICTURES OF MONEY (could make you a criminal)

Recommended Posts

I had no idea graphics programs would distinguish pictures on money and not open them.

I took some pictures of a couple of knives laying on $20 bill to show size. Both Adobe Photoshop Elements and Corel PaintShop Pro would not open them; Paint & Paint 3D would.

2. the illustration is one-sided; and
3. all negatives, plates, positives, digitized storage medium, graphic files, magnetic medium, optical storage devices and any other thing used in the making of the illustration that contain an image of the illustration or any part thereof are destroyed and/or deleted or erased after their final use.
