Until proven otherwise, my answer to your question is No.
I have Photoshop Elements 6 and Premiere Elements 4 as well as Photoshop Elements 7 and Premiere Elements 7 installed on my Windows XP desktop. If I tag videos in Photoshop Elements 7 and send those video over to Premiere Elements 7, the videos with tags travel great. However, if I tag videos in Photoshop Elements 6 and send those videos over to Premiere Elements 7, the videos travel but without the tags that I placed in Photoshop Elements 6 Organizer.
I believe the issue evolves around a non integrated set as well as the fact that I believe Photoshop Elements 6 probably has a different Organizer format (ODBC database format) than the Organizer in Premiere Elements 7 (SQLite database format). I have not found a way in Premiere Elements 7 (File Menu/Catalog) to workaround this issue. Neither have I found a way to convert the Photoshop Element 6 catalog in Photoshop Elements 6 to make the transfer of tags along with the video. Even if I could, I would need to think further into the possibility that the converted catalog would no longer be useable in Photoshop Elements 6.
Right now I am pondering two possibilities for you:
a. Upgrade your Photoshop Elements 6 to Photoshop Elements 7 so that you will have an integrated set (Photoshop Elements 7/Premiere Elements 7)
b. See if you can add and tag your videos to the Premiere Elements 7 Organizer and leave Photoshop Elements 6 catalog for your photos.
I am going to explore possibility "b" to see how that works out. I do not use the Organizer of either Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements to any great extent, but you question interested me and got me wondering.
Thanks...I just downloaded the trial PSE7 and converted my PSE6 catalog to PSE7. I am trying to use the File > Write Keyword Tag...option to write the metadata to my .avis, but the option is greyed out for me. I need to do another post about that.
I've been using Photoshop Album to catalog my photos and videos. I just got Lightroom and, after much drama, got my PS Album catalog into that. Now I've got to get the video catalog into either Bridge or PE7. I wish this was a little easier!
I'll keep you posted if I find a solution.
Photoshop Elements 7 Organizer, File Menu/"Write Keyword Tag and Properties into a Photo" is just that, "photo", not "video".
This option is also in Photoshop Elements 6 Organizer. For me, it works also for just photos, not videos. Did you ever get this “File Menu/Write Keyword Tag and Properties into a Photo” to work for video in Photoshop Elements 6 Organizer??
I apologize for the late reply - I've been on vacation! But, I did want to close the loop on this.
No, I did not get "“File Menu/Write Keyword Tag and Properties into a Photo" to work in PE 6 or 7. I haven't found a way to do any of this, so I am biting the bullet and will start tagging and captioning things all over in Bridge.
