Is there any easy way to put arrows on photos in Picasa without using Picnik Doodles? It takes sooo  long to load.

I often use the text tool.  Change the font to Wingdings3.  There are a bunch of arrows and other shapes to choose from.

The letter g is a plain arrow.  Use the size handle and rotate.  Position anywhere on your picture.

Here’s an article I wrote a while back in PicasaTutorials.com that gives some more step by step on using Wingdings font for arrows etc.
