Now its time to add the navigation to the slider. Before adding the arrows we need to make the background for the arrows. Draw a circle right side of the slider with Elliptical Marquee Tool. Fill the circle with orange color and set the opacity to 20%. Now copy the circle and place it on the left side of the slider. Now write <> from your keyboard with the Bauhaus 93 font.
