Step One: Open the Image

With Adobe Photoshop, open the image inwhich you would like to add an arrow. For this illustration, I am using a photo of my most recent batch of ginger nut cookies.

Decide whether you would like to draw the arrow head at the point where you finish drawing the arrow or where you start. Experiment with different line widths by changing the weight.

You can change the shape of the arrow head by changing concavity. This measurement is displayed by percentage and can range from -50% to 50%.

To change the color of the arrow, double click on the layer thumbnail  in the layers palette.
