    Migrate to Lightroom 3 with tags

    Scotts Screenname

      I have been able to migrate the pics from Photoshop Album Starter Edition 3.2 into Lightroom 3 but for the life of me can't figure out how to bring the tags across. Am I missing something simple .... Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

          The basic problem is that Starter Edition had no way to write tag info to files, and Lightroom had no way to import the Starter Edition catalog.

           

          Other than manually re-entering tags, you could upgrade the Starter Edition catalog to Photoshop Elements, then import the Elements catalog into Lightroom.

           

          Given the time required to do that, it might be faster just to retype the tags.
