    The answer depends on what you mean by "move"


    Can the same photo be indexed in both the PSE Organizer and Lightroom's catalog? Yes


    Can a photo in the PSE Organizer be edited in Lightroom? Yes, but its not a smooth process


    Can the photo be "moved" to Lightroom? No

    First, the ACR that works with PSE11 has most of the same editing features, and uses the exact same algorithms as LR. So if that meets your needs, you would be better off sending the photo to ACR in PSE11 than trying to get the photo into LR's editor. It's much much simpler.


    Why do you want to take a photo from PSE and edit it in Lightroom, anyway?


    But, to tell you the truth, if you have a photo in PSE and want to edit the photo in LR, then I think you are going about this backwards. You want to make Lightroom your primary organizer and editor, and make PSE 11 your secondary editor. This flows much more smoothly than going from PSE11 to LR, and has many other benefits as well.


    If you want to do either of these, let us know, and we'll describe how to do it.

    All you have to do is import the photo into Lightroom.


    In Lightroom, select File->Import Photos...

    Put it back in the folder then launch Lightroom. In the Library right-click on the folder in the left hand panel and choose synchronize folder. That should show one item to import.
