Do you have this font installed on your computer? If not, do so and then Photoshop can use it in your text layer accordingly.

Very likely the problem is not with Photoshop, but that the computer that you are working on is not set up to handle hindi.

If you are on a PC, you might find this link helpful.

Well I used Paintshop pro does that matter since I offered the transparent  as is
similar to photo shop anyway.
I  imported the indy language and added it as a transparent layer
r/clicking this image with the eye dropper
then click on the colors tab, then go down to Set Palette Transparency
then Set the transparency value to the current background color option, and then clicked OK
hense that silly colour in the backgroung I missed that
and then just saved it as a gif

Thank you for so many response.  I greatly appreciate.  I caught an infection and has been very sick the past few days.  My friend helped me to create the font using html (to get the look we need) and cut it out to use a graphic (one layer) in Photoshop last Saturday.

I am still not feeling well now and will review the comments and respond accordingly.  Please give me a day or two.  Again, thank you so much for the advice.

Thanks.  I tried your suggestion Merete.  It will work.  I appreciate that.

As mentioned, we used html to get the look and background we want, and paste it back to Photoshop.  See attached for the look.  (It is part of a brochure).   The sentence "Welcome to Michigan".
If anyone can suggest a font type and work as a text layer, please feel free to post here.  I am still interested to know if any "direct" method the language will work in Photoshop.

Just download some Hindi or Indian, which ever language  font and install it. Then start photoshop and select this font in font selection tab
maybe this can help.
