    Default chinese text in photoshop?

    hey guys, i need some help. I am currently embarking a project that i need to key in chinese text. Had a few failed attempt in doing so using photoshop. Wondering if photoshop could read chinese text(even cut and paste from Words). If not, what other program could i use?

    lemmi clarify. u copy fonts the way u would any other fonts, into ur windows font's folder. you dont need to copy new fonts if ur okay with the fonts which came when u installed ur OS (if at all u selected that option).

    PS is not the programme u would use to enter the chinese text, but it can recognise and read chinese text. the programme to type out the text, would be a seperate chinese programme.

    im asumming u already have a prog to write chinese, since u are able to copy over to PS from word?

    PS7 shouldnt be a problem, if i recall correctly, i did do some chinese stuff on ps7 also.

    hope it helps

    PS7 has no problem for Chinese Text. Though, notes to take:

    For ENGLISH windows, you need to make your OS uses Chinese as base for non-unicode software. Go to your Regional Options in CP and go to Advanced (for XP) or set default for Win2K

    OR, you use a program (such as Chinese Star), that virtually convert your PS to chinese base.

    hmmm the copy and paste can't really work for me. I was quite surprised when my ps7 couldnt let me paste the chinese text. Coz i remembered i just did a project that used chinese fonts as well lately on cs.. so i was wondering is there any difference. Maybe its the OS thingy.. and i am not too sure how to fix it. Oh man great site u have there anyway.. awesome.. i like u webpage.. and the song.. cool~~!!
