Hallo! I need a new Mac with an up to date OS - but I dont want to rent Photoshop as I am a basic user.

 

So - can I transfer all my pics (originals and optimized) from Photoshop CS 6 to Elements 2023?

 

Thank you!

Elements is a database.  It does not store your photos in a separate location.  So, you will be able to import all of the photos stored on your computer into a catalog and you will be able to view and edit them in the Editor.  It has been so long since I have used CS6 so I don't know how it handled adjustments to raw files (whether the adjustments are made in the metadata or in a sidecar XML file).  Either way, I'm sure Elements will be able to handle them.

 

You can download a free trial of Elements.

Your photos aren't actually in CS6, they are just files on your computer. So transferring does not apply. What format do you save your files in?
