Last summer, on the basis that PhotoShop Elements please refrain from sniggering could enter Asian text from an English OS was purchased by yours truly, as I only needed to mess around with a few graphics with Asian text in a PhotoShop environment without the price. So far, so good.
What version of photoshop are you using, rpking? Would an upgraded version perhaps offer the functionality you need?

So PhotoShop Elements CAN handle chinese characters? Is there a trick to it?It works for me...Windows 2000 English OS with the off-the-shelf IME stuff installed I can directly input Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese and Korean. I'm sure it would work the same for any of the other Asian languages as well.
With v.7 coming out any day, I'd advise any 5.5 users to save their pennies and pre-order the v.7 upgrade if they're interested in the expanded text editing features. PSP users should send lots of demanding letters to their R&D department, and keep their fingers crossed...
I can't see any reason why (with the hardware capabilities of today's computers) all the major graphics software companies shouldn't immediately make their image editing software 100% capable of handling both vector & bitmap editing functions, including support for complex text characters.
