Conversion to PSE 2020

I'm currently using PSE 9 on Windows 10. I'm interested in upgrading to PSE 2020 (I realize I would have the full price, not the upgrade price). 

 

Can someone help me with this? Is it even feasible? Is there an instruction doc somewhere that would describe the process? 

 

Thanks

There is no "upgrade" that will overwite an older version of PSE. If you puchase the current version, it can live on your computer with your PSEv.9. Each version is independent. If you registered the product (v.9) you may be entitled to a discount from Adobe, but note that frequently the price is lower on Amazon or in one of the box stores. Suggest that you download the free, 30 trial to see if you like it.

The PSE 2020 Organizer can convert your PSE9 catalog if you are installing on the same machine. You may get prompted to convert, so simply click to agree. Your PSE9 catalog remains untouched after the conversion is made for use in PSE 2020.

Thanks. That helps me. Do you know if 2020 has an import, or some other, mechanism for incorporating and accessing the records built with PSE 9?
