This question is looking for software to perform some image recognition in Windows. They mention that they'd like to do so in Photoshop or Windows if not in PS.
If it's not possible with Photoshop, should the adobe-photoshop tag be removed?
The edit was rejected because it wasn't what the original poster (OP) intended. You wrote this as the edit comment:
Removed the [adobe-photoshop] tag since this is a far more complex problem than PS scripting is capable of
Here, you put in a fact that the OP was not aware of and tried to adjust the contents of the post according to what you thought. (But I do agree with you!)
Your edit changed the intention of the question because the OP would prefer a Photoshop solution, but after your suggested edit, Photoshop was only hinted as a tool available to the OP.
Instead of making an edit, I think you should have written a comment to prompt the OP to edit the question themselves. Perhaps something along the lines of this:
If you want this question to be more about computer vision (examples here and here) and less specific to Photoshop, you should edit your question to remove the
[adobe-photoshop]tag and just mention that you have Photoshop available.
Tags are for the question, not the answer.
Those issues get sorted out in answers and comments. The tags shouldn't presuppose the answer, or introduce constraints or avenues of solution not specified by the OP.
Often the fundamental value of an answer is explaining to the OP what they didn't understand (and the reason why their question was misguided). If tags for the answer are added to the question, it confuses the underlying reason of why the question was asked in the first place.
In the case where the answer is that it can't be done, would you remove all of the tags because they don't apply to the answer? That's the essence of your issue with the Photoshop tag.
Personally, I think there's no question that adobe-photoshop should be removed.
I asked for clarification in the comments, the user confirmed that "other programs are allowed too". This type of operation is not possible within Photoshop and is well beyond the capabilities allowed in Photoshop scripting.
The question was misguided, Photoshop was only mentioned based on a false premise that it might be possible. Since it's not, I'd argue strongly for the removal of the tag.
