Hello Community

A question before I buy Elements 2020 for my Windows 10.

I have approx 25000 photos from Windows 7 My Pictures catalogued in Elements 9 on my old PC. Can I import all this  catalogueing  into Elements 2020 on Windows 10 with my new Laptop ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Migration to a new computer is performed by creating a full backup on an external drive, and a restore from the organizer installed on the new computer with the new PSE version. https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop-elements/kb/backup-restore-move-catalog-photoshop.html After the catalog and the media files have been restored, the catalog is converted to the current format (the old catalog is not overwritten).

Hi
Since your question is about Photoshop Elements, I have moved this from the "Photoshop" forum where you posted.
