    Do you know how to make the shape of a triangle with Photoshop? Do you know how to make a stroked or filled line, about 2 pixels high?

    Just do that, each in it's own layer, and stick them together. I'll actually admit that arrows seem like they'd be easy to make, but they're sometimes hard to make them perfect.

    I've used the wingding fonts or the device fonts before, switch to that font and use all the charecters on the keyboard to see if any are an arrow. Honestly, I cannot remember if one is or not.

    Also, do you have Flash? In the tutorials for Flash, I'm certain there is a symbol of an arrow in there. All you have to do is open it, and copy and paste it into Photoshop.

    Good Luck,

    Heres a easier solution for your problem.Use the font Wingdings 3. The middle line lower case is all arrows. You should be able to find the one you need.

    You can also use the line tool and in the options box select arrowheads and edit in there. probably not appropriate for this job, but if you wanted an arrow with the line thingy on it it would be good.
