Try Shutter instead.
$ sudo apt-get install libgoo-canvas-perl gnome-web-photo

Load the image & then click 'Edit'. Arrow tool is the small black
horizontal arrow on the left. You can change the colors via the 'Stroke
Color' on the bottom.
Shutter is a screen capture tool; it is both faster & easier to add
arrows, text boxes, than Gimp. However, it's 'Edit' features are
excellent for doing what you are looking fore.
*Warning* Shutter does not have a 'Save As' option in the edit mode, so
*be sure* to *always* use a copy to work with.
