I just bought a laptop with Windows 8 and installed Photoshop Elements 11. Previously, using Photoshop Elements 7 on a Windows 7 machine, I did a full backup of my catalog to an external drive. The files in this backup folder are: 1) numerous photo jpgs, 2) a catalog.buc file, and 3) a backup.tly file. There is nothing else in the folder.When I try to convert/restore this catalog into Photoshop 11 the catalog manager does not detect or recognize the backed up catalog. Is there a problem with my back up files? Is there a solution for the failure to detect the catalog?
Go to file>restore catalog and navigate to the .tly file in your backup. Does that work?
That worked. At first glance it looks like everything has been restored. Thank you very much for the solution
You're welcome. I'm glad that fixed it for you.
