Freebie – Arrow words and Photoshop layer styles to recolor them

Hi all! I was playing around a bit in Photoshop today and came up with these 10 arrow words. There is also a set of styles (.asl file) to recolor them, to make them match whatever color your layout is. Note: this .asl file can only be used in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements! If you’re not sure how to install styles in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, check out this tutorial at the Lilypad. 

If you are interested, I’ll do a second set of words, just leave me a comment with the word you’d like to be included in this 2nd set and I’ll do the first 10-15 or so.

Si tu veux, laisse moi un commentaire avec le (ou quelques) mot(s) que tu voudrais voir en mot flèche et je l’inclut dans le add-on a venir bientôt.

OOPSIE! Forgot to include the link to this post in my email … sorry! If you read this, you found it anyway!

Here’s a preview of the colors that are included in the layer styles. There’s 4 versions of each color: a simple color change, color+shadow, color+extra stroke, color+extra stroke+shadow. Take your pick! No worries if the color you want isn’t included, it is easy to change the color in a style. You can also change the stroke size if you want, or play around with the shadow settings. I love layer styles just because of that: you can change them to your liking. 


  1. Thanks! What about those ones maybe: hope? enjoy? star? the best? ok that’s 2 words 🙂

  2. I’ve thought of a few I’d love to see ….

    And then a few more ideas …
    (as you can tell I have a specific layout in mind with the last ones, but the first ones will probably be more general for other people?)

  3. Thank you for the input ladies! Watch this space 🙂
