Graphic software maker Adobe Systems now sells its industry-standard Photoshop program in plant form, company spokesmen revealed.
Customers can still buy the software by the box, but they now have the option of growing it from seed. The Photoshop bush is a small, decorative shrub which does well in temperate climates, preferring medium sun.
Consumers are cautioned, however, that converting the shrub's berries to useable software is a difficult procedure to which Adobe holds the sole patent. "Any attempt to refine or process Photoshop berry juice into executable code will be treated as a serious infringement of Adobe's intellectual property rights, and prosecuted vigorously," according to the warning label.
