    Hi,

    Where could I find this type of arrow for either InDesign of Photoshop CS4 ?

    Thank You

    Looks like one of the standard brush patterns from Illustrator. The stroke could have been created in Illustrator and pasted into Photoshop.

    Is there anyway to get that library from the internet ? My Illustrator trial has expired :(

    Thank You

    Just click on your brush, different types like a chalk effect. Looks like it's been drawn with the chalky brush :).

    Hmm, didn't work that well for me.

    Is there anywhere that I can download arrows at all ? I've seen another one I like, would I just use shape tools and a gradient to achieve the desired effect ?

    Or download it from online, I have no time! :p

    The OSX Character Viewer is a good place to find arrows and other font glyphs.

    Do you have a scanner? You could have made a dozen different ones by hand in less time than waiting for a response to your post. People rely too much on the computer when it's often much easier to grab a pencil, pen, brush, chalk, and a piece of paper.

    1. Purchase a Sharpie.
    2. Leave it uncapped for a couple of days.
    3. Take out a sheet of rough paper.
    4. Draw a dozen arrows.
    5. Scan the best one.

    Or draw a similar arrow with Adobe Illustrator in a few seconds.
