    Upgrade a Catalog

    Catalog Upgrade

      Can I upgrade a catalog from Photoshop Album 2.0 to Photoshop Lightroom 5?

          That may or may not be possible.

           

          You need to attempt the following:

           

          1. Download the 30 day free trial of Photoshop Elements 13, and see if it will convert your PSA2 catalog to a PSE13 catalog. (In theory this should work, but sometimes people report that catalogs in very old software will not convert)
          2. Using Lightroom 5.7 (and not any earlier versions), upgrade the PSE13 catalog to a Lightroom catalog.

           

          I add that if step 1 doesn't work, perhaps there are intermediate conversions that might get you to where you want, such as find someone (friend, relative, neighbor, total stranger) who has PSE 5 and convert your PSA2 catalog to PSE5 (higher chance of success) and then convert the PSE5 catalog to PSE 13. Yes, I know this sounds tedious but it has worked for some.
