Currently, there are two solutions for user who wish to use Photoshop to type in Arabic or Hebrew.

The first is to buy the Middle Eastern version of the product, currently developed in tandem with the company, WinSoft. That version has full support for all bi-directional and complex-script functionality.

The second option would be to use CS4 or CS5 to open one of the templates which Jeff posted. Here's another copy of the links -- they're actually both cross-platform. http://www.adobe.com/support/download... or http://www.adobe.com/support/download... . Just replace the Arabic or Hebrew text with your own. These two versions of the application respect any PSD with Arabic or Hebrew text and allow further editing.

In the future, we do plan on enhancing our support of Arabic and Hebrew.

Howdy Ghassen, Khalil, Sara, Anouar, Senol,

I'm happy to suggest that you check out the new Photoshop CS6 public beta!

http://blogs.adobe.com/photoshopdotco...

This latest version has fully support for Arabic and Hebrew, as well as limited, unofficial support for many other scripts!

Thanks and enjoy!

Although I have Photoshop CS 5 Middle East version installed on my Mac, when I try to write Arabic text, the letters do not connect to form words as if I am using a software that does not support the right to left alignment. Any ideas? Thanks

For Photoshop ME support, you need to talk to WinSoft. They are responsible for the right to left text engine in Photoshop ME.

Howdy Anouar,

What you are describing sounds like you've changed which text composer you version of Photoshop is using. Go to your Paragraph panel and from the flyout menu, select one of the two Middle Eastern Composers. Now you'll find that you're back in business.

Shukran!

Shukran David for your interest, but I forgot to tell you that when I installed Photoshop at first everything was fine: I was able to write Arabic text. All of a sudden the problem appeared. I have changed the paragraph alignment, the font, direction...in vain. I have InDesign running on the same machine and it works fine (they are the same version by the way). Any other suggestions?

I'm extremely angry and mad about Adobe as a company, because:

1. We do have CS3 for web and PSE7, but can not make buttons with Arabic text on them.

2. We downloaded a template found on your website for CS4. It works on PSE 10, but only for Arabic chars and not numbers! How hard is to include full set of fonts including numbers? When you copy Arabic numbers and paste, Latin numbers appear and flow from left to right.

3. We normally (99%) use Latin chars on all our projects, but sometimes do need to make buttons in Arabic (some websites have 10-15 buttons in Arabic). We do not need your ME products, as we do not speak and write in Arabic. We need English products that could type all languages accordingly, most flow from left to right, few from right to left (not only chars but also numbers).

4. I have a Sony notebook sold in TR that came with PSE 7 in EN. I registered in online and tried to upgrade to PSE 10, but could not, as Adobe does not sell online to TR (you find it out when you come to checkout page and get an error, no decleration or information at first stage).

Having marketing degree in Harvard, I find all above stupid & non-sense, and believe that in the long run such strategies will not work, as long as you make customers unhappy. If one can hold his/her right ear with his/her right hand, why should he/she hold it with the left one? Is globalization just for show? Trying your best to push your products during first sell, but then showing local resellers is just opportunistic approach. Why one should go out instead of purchasing at the comfort of his/her home and downloading?

Regarding Arabic text and number bug, I leave it to you. If you Adobians find it normal, I need a Martian graphics software company...

This topic is not solved. Those templates do solve alpha character problem only, but not Arabic numbers. When you copy and paste Arabic numbers (in either CS4 or CS5 or PSE 10), numbers still appear in Latin chars and flow from left to right, not in Arabic chars and flow from right to left.

Try typing following in templates supplied in official replies, text will appear the way it should, but numbers will read 40,000 as in English and flow from left to right. Not fixed!

Hello Senol,

The US version of Photoshop CS5 does not officially support Arabic, Hebrew, Devanagari, or a host of other languages. As a result, you are correct, Hindi/Arabic numbers are not correctly displayed. This is a problem, however, which we are working on rectifying.

There is a version of Photoshop CS5, sold by WinSoft (www.winsoft.fr) which does handle Arabic numbers and text. The templates provided above are meant as a partial bridge for (most) users until full Middle Eastern support is available in the core application.

I hope that helps,
Shukran!
David
