I want to create an image with some text written on it. The text which is to be written is in Hindi language and I have that text in a ms word file. But I don't know Hindi typing so the only option I have is to copy and paste that text from ms-word file as it is. Now the problem is the same font is working in ms-word file properly but as I soon as I copy it to Photoshop with the same font enabled, it is showing something weird boxes. In short, Hindi font is working for ms-word but same Hindi font is not working for Photoshop particularly in case of copy and paste. Not only one font, I tried many of them but problem is the same for every font. Please help. Proper answer will be greatly appreciated.

  1. Open the Hindi text in WORD
  2. Highlight the text
  3. Press CTRL+C on the keyboard to copy the text and put it on the clipboard
  4. Open the picture file in PSE
  5. Press CTRL+V to paste the text on the picture file. It will come in on a separate layer.
  6. Position the text with the move tool, and resize, if necessary, with the corner handles

@hatstead thanks a lot for quick reply but I think you didn't read the question properly. I said the same Hindi font is working in ms word but as soon as I copy it from ms word file to Photoshop with the same font enabled it shows weird boxes. so, copy and paste is not working even if the same font is enabled in both applications.

Please post something in Hindi text here. I should like to try pasting the message on to a picture file as a block of text, I.e . not using the type tool in PSE.

You can post via the camera icon at the top of the reply box.

Gagan_mathur,

I copied the Hindi text from your post with the snipping tool in Windows 7

Opened the snip in PSE

I applied a Levels adjustment layer to enhance the text in PSE

Copied the text to the clipboard

Pasted the text on a picture file.

Is this what you are after?

hatstead Thanks a lot for your quick reply, but this is not what I want! Actually when I posted the picture with Hindi font I forgot that you don't know the Hindi language. Actually in the picture I want something which is written on the right hand side to the equal sign ('='). Problem is when I copy it from ms word file or notepad file with same font enabled in the Photoshop, Photoshop automatically converts it to something which is written on the left hand side to equal sign ('='). Believe me I have done everything in last 24 hours to fix this problem but unfortunately none of the solution worked. I also used "Place" option to import the ms word file but again unfortunately Photoshop doesn't allow text files or .doc file format to be placed. So the thing is I want something which is written right hand side but when I copy it to Photoshop, Photoshop automatically converts it into something which is written on the left hand side. I hope you got the crux. Please help!!

Nothing more futile & frustrating than a "know-it-all" commenter  who 1) Assumes the original poster is stupid 2) Misunderstands the original question and further increases the confusion 3) Posts a sub-par workaround, once has been asked to rectify

Dear hatstead,

Why would someone use such powerful tool as Photoshop while copying snippets of font image from Word? Might as well use Paint if resolution and technical versatility is of no regard.

Sometimes no solution is better than a crappy solution, especially in a matter whose quality depends on small details.

Cheers.

Here's what worked for me:

  1. Go to: http://www.indiantypefoundry.com/help/technical-issues/how-to-use-unicode-fonts/
  2. Under "Using Adobe Templates" you'll find templates for Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign with a pre-installed Hindi font which is configured to preserve the characters. Download the template that is relevant to the application you are working in.
  3. Copy and paste your text from Word into the template. The template should preserve the font copied from Word. The font used is Adobe Devanagari.
  4. Copy text from Adobe template to your Adobe document, or work on it directly.

Hope it helps,

Cristina

PSE is not a text editor. That is why I suggested that you copy the text available to you in your WORD document as a "print screen", then paste it to the picture. Windows 7 has the Snipping tool which facilitates this process. Your equipment may vary.

I had the same problem 4 years back. I solved it by not using Unicode. Copy paste of Hindi unicode and its fonts like Mangal or Mathura etc. never work. Instead I downloaded some specialized softwares which were made specifically to type Indian languages. The most famous (but paid after 30 days trial) that worked for me is Baraha. It worked perfectly when I had to design pages for Hindi text.

For that, first you need to pay some time (around half an hour) learning how to use Baraha. After that, all is easy. Make a Baraha rtf ANSI file after you type the hindi stuff you want, and then copy-paste will work.

Let me know in case you don't follow. I will help you out.

Here are some sample shots

B1.png

Shot 1: First type the stuff you want. It also has a tutorial how to type in Phonetic way

B2.png

Shot 2: Then Export it as RTF (ANSI) and open the file.

B3.png

Shot 3: Now copy the text from the file (for example, here I have opened RTF in MS Word). Make sure that you notice that font is BRH Devnagari.

B4.png

Shot 4: After you paste text, if it shows weird symbols, Select all text (Ctrl+A) and change font to BRH Devnagari. It will work without problem.
