Lightroom can convert an Organizer catalog but that does not work the other way round. The only way to 'take Lightroom 6 files into PSE15 is to create a new Organizer catalog and to 'import' the files from their real location on your drive(s).

Since you don't recover anything (tags, collections...) from the LR catalog, you'll have to select all your files in LR and 'write metadata to files - shortcut Ctrl S). The tags and captions will be accessible to the organizer at import time.

So, if the media files are on the same computer, you simply import all in the organizer. If the media have to be copied elsewhere, on another computer or another location to separate the catalog managements, use your OS to copy your media files folder structure where needed.

After import, all your tags will be available in the keywords panel on the right, in the 'imported keywords' section. You can manage those keywords and create a new structure for categories, subcategories and keywords.

Note that I don't use geotagging nor face recognition, I don't know how those metadata will be handled.

My advice:first try to import a small batch in a new catalog in Elements to see how it works.

Now I understand. Could you state your OS version? I am on Windows 10.

I don't use the "edit in PSE" command usually (but it does work for me), I am using the 'Elemental' pluging from Daw Matt. It gives more options and better integration without the need for an intermediate tiff/psd file.

Excellent piece of advice Michel, Adobe couldn't fix it as it is a "known problem" apparently but your advice on the Elemental plugin was spot on.  Working perfectly thank you!
