if i edit in adobe and then just reopen it in gimp is it possible for the name adobe to disappear in the filename or any trace for that matter? Because my professor dont want us to use ps unless we are sure that we can produce the real licensed one, because almost all of my classmates and i only cd write our copies to a friend so that's the reason why i need another one. i hate gimp its powerful but its hard to study another and it is not GUI!!!!

Do I understand you correctly, by thinking you and your friends are copying registered versions of Photoshop to share with others?

Yup....

......you understand. It is quite a common question in other forums that I have been in. I have, in the past, guested at a local high school and a local community college. Both require that you show proof of ownership for things like Photoshop, GoLive etc. I even had to prove that I owned the software on the PowerBook that I used in classes at the college. I haven't done it in 3 years, but i am certain that the rules really haven't changed much.

If it's an illegal copy - yes.

At the risk of facilitating piracy, I'd like to note that there are several freeware/shareware utilities that purge Photoshop thumbnails, Macintosh headers, EXIF, JFIF and JPEG metadata from digital images. The basic (and legal) motivation behind these is to minimize the filesize of the image for faster online transfer. Size reduction can range from a few bytes to 20+ kilobytes and more per image.

My favorite utility in this catagory is Thumber ( http://www.tawbaware.com/thumber.htm ). Unchecking the "Retain image data in edited and resized images" option in Settings will remove all header info. For those of us who prefer to keep all of our original header/EXIF info though, Thumber does that too. It will rotate, sharpen, blur, resize, and even batch-remove specified "bad pixels" and then save the edited file with all the original header information intact (except for dimensional info of course).

Another good shareware program is David Crowell's JStrip ( http://www.davidcrowell.com/jstrip.php ). While it doesn't have Thumber's editing capabilities, it does a very straighforward job of removing all the extra header baggage. David also distributes a freeware version called JStrip Lite with fewer options.

WHY DON"T YOU GUYS TRY A SIMPLE "WINDOWS PAINT"

I just tried, it removes the words ADOBE, PHOTOSHOP etc.
