I have looked all over and found instructions for converting a catalog from Adobe Photoshop Album into Photoshop Elements 9, but it does not see my catalog? I have tried selecting it by clicking "Find More Catalogs" and I select the folder containing the catalog but it does not show up and the option to "Show Previously Converted Catalogs" is disabled? I am quite frustrated, as the entire reason for purchasing Adobe Photoshop Elements was to be able to import my old Photoshop Album catalog. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Please search for your Photoshop Album catalog database file on your system which would me <catalog name>.psa file. Now browse to this location from your PSE Organizer application through catalog conversion workflow.
Let me know if you still see issues.
Thank you for the suggestion, I have tried converting the catalog from the psa file as well as restoring from the psb (backup) file and neither one is working on my new computer. It partially converts the catalog from Photoshop Album (PSA) 2 but then all the file links are broken in Photoshop Elements (PSE) 9. I have about 10,000 photos in this catalog, so it is a lot of files. I still have my old computer so I tried installing PSE 9 on it and then it converted the PSA catalog fine, so I backup up the PSE 9 catalog on my old computer and tried doing a restore from this backup on my new computer and same thing, only some of the files come through.
I'm still at a loss with this. I've tried calling Adobe for support and they don't support either of these products anymore, I'm not surprised about Adobe Photoshop Album, but Photoshop Elements 9 isn't that old? If I can't import my catalog from Adobe Photoshop Album into Photoshop Elements then this is really unfortunate. I'm not sure what else I can do at this point? If I'm unable to import the catalog then I'll lose all the information I entered (date, tags, etc.) as well as the projects I created (slideshows, greeting cards), which would be a big bummer. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
