Just out of curiosity, regarding those damn hot new "About Page 2.0" pages and the arrow images that were used there:

enter image description here

My question is:

Which tool was used to create those arrows?

(The reason that I'm asking is that I recently was in the need to have some arrows, too, and didn't find any reasonable utility to create them)

They look vector-based. – Makoto Jan 30 '13 at 19:27
@Makoto Yes, I do think so. I ended up using Visio to draw my arrows, but the SO arrows look way better! – Uwe Keim Jan 30 '13 at 19:28
Inkscape is your friend. (Unless you have money. Then Adobe is your friend.) – squillman Jan 31 '13 at 14:55
Thanks, @squillman - I've downloaded and even looked at some tutorials be seem to be unable to find any slightly high-level function that supports arrows. Can you give me a further hint where to look at? – Uwe Keim Feb 1 '13 at 5:36
