Arabic letters are not joined together in Photoshop

Question from Mustafa Darwish

In Photoshop, you’ll need the Middle East (ME) version in order to use the normal Arabic Font or you can get the Illustrator ME version & make all your Arabic text inside then importing the text to the Photoshop as Smart Objects. The Middle East versions are the only versions that can render the correct Arabic type.

If you can’t get the ME versions, you can download a small software called الرسام العربي or الوسيط that can transform the Arabic letters into codes where Photoshop can understand & render correctly.

My friend @sherif pointed me to this template from Adobe where you can download & use it with any Photoshop version. Thanks for the tip Sherif 🙂
