Creating a layered image in Photoshop, and then importing it into Gimp in order to add text layers is completely crazy, to say the least, but it's an effective workaround for the lack of South Asian language support (specifically Sanskrit and Hindi) in Adobe Photoshop. It's 2013, and Unicode is still not fully supported. What gives?? Is there a plugin for this?

Howdy Peter,

South Asian and Middle Eastern text are handled by an alternate text engine. Full details are here:
