Have been a PSE user for a long time and decided to give LR a try. Downloaded trial version of LR6 and imported my PSE14 catalog. After seeing how the import went i decided to clean up my PSE catalog (deleted many many files and cleaned up some tags). After doing so I wanted to re-import into LR so I deleted my LR catalog as prescribed by adobe help but when I tried to import my PSE catalog again I received a "You cannot import a Photoshop Elements Catalog more than once" message. I could not find any help with searches is this a message related to me trying to do this with the trial version? In other words if I purchase will I be able to again import my PSE14 catalog? Thanks to anyone who can help as I have decide I like LR and would like to use it but the import problem is a major issue.
You can try renaming the PSE catalog to something else and try opening it in Lightroom 6.
Refer the below link for renaming the existing PSE catalog.
Let us know if that helps.
thank you very much that worked. don't know why i didn't think of it.
