There's no command I'm aware of in Photoshop to join anchors. You have to grab the Pen tool, Click the first anchor, then click the second anchor.

That is the answer, use the pen tool to click the first anchor then the second. –  Dave Nelson Jun 25 '13 at 19:34
    
might want to add where the pen tool is and the options to remove the anchor point if he goes that route –  Gramps Jun 25 '13 at 20:58

@Matt_2.0 ermm.. the Pen Tool is on the Tool bar. Right there in plain sight. Does that really need describing? And removing an anchor point will change the path, which would be another matter entirely. –  Scott Jun 26 '13 at 11:33

This is how I do it:

  1. Select in Path Selection Tool
  2. Highlight your 2 paths
  3. On the top Bar hit the Combine Shape button
  4. Link them point to point with Freeform Pen tool (for easier snapping) or Pen Tool
  5. Delete the unncessary points with Delete Anchor Point Tool, whereas necessary.

(If you linked with the Freeform Pen Tool, once cleaned the unnecessary anchor point, you will already get a straight line between them)

They have to share their position, so you have to snap one to the other.

In Illustrator yes. But in Photoshop? Where is join? I can't find it. –  Scott Jun 25 '13 at 17:43
    
Sorry, I assumed illustrator. Why not copy the path to Illustrator, fix it and then copy it back? –  KMSTR Jun 25 '13 at 18:55
