      Can I transfer images from PSE9 Organizer to PSE11 Organizer?

          You don't actually transfer or move the photos.


          You upgrade the PSE9 catalog to PSE11, this should happen automatically the first time you open PSE11.

            Thanks, but that didn't happen for me.

              Sometimes catalog conversion fails. It’s often a question of needing full permission settings and the easiest way to make it work is as an administrator directly from the desktop which bypasses the welcome screen background processes.
              Make a shortcut for organizer as follows:
              On Windows right-click anywhere on the desktop and choose New >> Shortcut
              Browse to Computer OS C:
              Find the PSE Organizer application in Program Files or Program Files (x86) on Windows 7 - 64 bit.
              C: >> Program Files (x86) >> Adobe >> Elements 11 Organizer
              Within the Elements 11 Organizer folder find the application PhotoshopElementsOrganizer (not Photoshop Elements 11.0)
              Select (highlight) PhotoshopElementsOrganizer and click Next
              Then click Finish.

              Now right-click on your new desktop icon and choose “Run As Administrator” Then authorize by clicking yes in the User Account Control dialog.
              From the Organizer menu click:
              File >> Manage Catalogs
              Then click the “Convert” button

              Select your desired catalog from the list of previous versions of PSE to highlight it then click the “Convert” button down below it

              You should receive a message when the conversion has been successfully completed and your earlier catalog will be automatically re-named. Choose the new name from the list and click the “Open“ button and you are good to go.
