Want Arrowheads? Photoshop Can Add Them For You!
This one is pretty slick because it’s been a feature in Photoshop for a while, but eight out of ten Photoshop users will tell you Photoshop can’t create arrowheads on the ends of lines (if it makes you feel any better, nine out of 10 dentists didn’t think Photoshop could do it either). Here’s how: First, go under the Shape tools (in the Toolbox) and choose the Line tool. Then, up in the Options Bar, you’ll see icons for the shape tools. Directly to the right of these eight icons is a down-facing triangle. Click on that triangle and out pops a dialog where you can click a checkbox to add arrowheads to either the beginning or end of your line, and you can choose the Width, Length, and even the Concavity (there’s that dentist thing again).
