I've just downloaded the Creative Cloud 6 trial and am particularly interested in changing over from PSE12 to Lightroom 6. I've downloaded and installed the software but when I hit the button to upgrade my PSE12 catalog Lightroom says it has encountered a problem and can't proceed. Is this because it is the trial version? If I can't convert the PSE catalog this will be a deal breaker for me as the PSE catalog covers my entire photo collection. Any advice appreciated.
Install a trial of PSE 13.1, Convert your PSE 12.x catalog to the 13.x version then import to LR.
Well I tried that but had exactly the same problem. LR won't convert the PSE 13.x catalog either! Mmmm..beginning to wonder if LR is worth the effort. I can import files into Lightroom just cant get it to convert my existing catalog which is essential if I am going to make the jump to LR.
I have exactly the same problem and if I can't import my existing PSE catalog, I won't be making the jump either.
