Looking for more information on HTML5

C) PSD - top

There's a single PSD file included for the different colored arrows. This file is very simple and straight forward, each arrow layer is labeled with its filename. Colors can be easily changed by double clicking the layer and adjusting the Gradient Overlay.

Once again, thank you so much for purchasing this file. As I said at the beginning, I'd be glad to help you if you have any questions relating to this file. No guarantees, but I'll do my best to assist.
