Yep, I think you need to attach with that process. e.g.

var
  hAdobe, Pid1, Pid2 : THandle;
  Key : char;
begin
  hAdobe := FindWindow(nil, PChar(AdobeTitle)); // get the handle of adobe photoshop
  if hAdobe = 0 then Exit;
  Pid1 := GetWindowThreadProcessId(hAdobe, nil);
  Pid2 := GetCurrentThreadId;
  AttachThreadInput(Pid1, Pid2, True);
  Key := #132;
  SendMessage(h,WM_CHAR,Ord(Key),0);
end;
