That's a really cool idea, but I don't think it would work.

From wikipedia: "Research shows that the EURion constellation is used for color photocopiers and is likely not used for computer software."

You can see this with photoshop, where the presence of the constellation does not appear to affect currency detection.


I don't have a screenshot handy, but I definitely got this error last year when I tried to open a picture of some bank notes in Photoshop. GIMP had no such qualms :-)

Seconded. I played around with it for a while as well - creating images in a different image editing app and then opening them in photoshop to see when the warning is triggered.
