Assume PS CS6. I cannot find an easy way. I have tried Character Panel, select the superscipt and type letter o
for degree symbol. But how to get it directly?

Couldn't you just use the "O" and then free transform to the size and shape you need.

Not sure if there is a direct way.

In Photoshop CS6. At least on a mac, all you have to do is is press and hold OPTION/ALT + 0 key for the degree symbol.

OPTION/ALT + 3 key for the £ symbol/sign.................and so on.

For mac alternatives

Using keyboard shortcuts : OPTION + SHIFT + 8
Another one: OPTION + K
And the last one: OPTION + 0

Also, suppose you forgot keyboard shortcuts. Now press CONTROL + COMMAND + SPACE right away from the keyboard. The symbol manager will then open. Just type the expression you want in the top search bar. When we enter in "degree", we will show the necessary results. You can now access all math symbols.
