Adobe has acknowledged that its Photoshop CS software contains a "counterfeit deterrence system" to prevent users from accessing images of currency, however, some users are already finding workarounds. The counterfeit deterrence system, whenever it detects an attempt to access a currency image, aborts the operation, and directs users to a website on international counterfeiting laws. Digital artist Kiera Wooley was able to circumvent the system by saving a currency image in an earlier version of Photoshop, and opening it in Photoshop CS. Adobe voluntarily chose to work with banks to include the anti-counterfeiting measures. Between 1995 and 2002, the proportion of counterfeit bills produced digitally grew from 1% to 40%, largely due to the widespread availability of high quality printers.
