Lighten Up, Francis

While it may end up making no difference in real-life usage, the fun-meisters over at Adobe® have decided to lay down the law when it comes to the lingo:

Trademarks are not verbs.
  CORRECT: The image was enhanced using Adobe® Photoshop® software.
  INCORRECT: The image was photoshopped.

Trademarks are not nouns.
  CORRECT: The image pokes fun at the Senator.
  INCORRECT: The photoshop pokes fun at the Senator.
So the next time you come across that picture of the domo-kuns chasing the kitten, make sure they call it what they're supposed to, eh?
