With the Easy Arrows script, you can attach arrows, graphics, and pre-comps to the ends of a Shape Layer path with the click of a button! The arrow(s) will auto-orient along your stroke and change the size to match the width. There is a default arrow included, but you can also use custom layers of your own.
