Let's say I've completed a path and the pen tool is no longer selected.( It's a straight line, not a closed circle.)

Now I want to start from the ending point again and continue the line. How do I do this without starting a new Initial anchor point? I don't want to begin a new path.

Thanks! (I'm running Photoshop elements CS3)

You should be able to select the Pen Tool and then activate the end point by clicking it. The cursor should look like this:

I'm using Photoshop CS5 though, so let me know if this doesn't work.
