There are templates that allow users to edit and create Arabic text in Photoshop:

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. or . 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!

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

Thanks and enjoy!
