Using multiple catalogs to speed up the performance.
I want to use the sameTags in the new catalog and therefore I export from the old catalog and import to the new one. But I only get the key word Tags, not the persons or places Tags.
Do you have a solution?
Old question both in Elements and Lightroom.
Splitting a catalog for better performance does not work and creates multiple issues like the one you are seeing.
- There is no significant speed loss when doubling the size of your catalog except for tasks like initial indexing for face recognition, smart tagging or backups.
- as noted by John R Ellis ten years ago, merging catalogs is not an option in PSE.
- you are losing a lot of information by not being able to search across multiple catalogs. That's even a frequent request from Lightroom users, even if LR can merge, extract and import from catalogs.
