Photoshop – Drawing Arrows


KB ID 0000204 Dtd 11/03/10


I wrote a walkthough on drawing box’s earlier, the second thing I tend to do, is put arrows on my diagrams to point things out.


1. OK, so I’ve got my graphic, and I know something about it thats not obvious at first glance.


2. So I’ll open it with Photoshop and put an arrow on it. Firstly Select the "Line tool".

3. On the toolbar at the top select the drop down arrow next to the free form tool > And tick the Arrowheads "End" box. Note: for a larger line/arrow width, change the weight from 1px (pixel).

Note: This mas moved in Photoshop CS6.

4. Click and drag on the graphic where you want the arrow to start and stop.
