However now stuck in converting the 14 Catalog to 2019.
I have G > User > Photoshop Elements Catalogs > Main Catalog > Main Catalog > catalog.pse14db (247MB) and face.thumb.9.cache (154MB)and thumb.5.cache (1GB) - sizes approx - NOTE the actual image data is some 600GB.
When I open Elements Organizer 2019 and point to this path it does not find a catalog to convert. I press convert and it finds a number of catalogs but not the 14 ones. I then search and point to the path I know where catalog.pse14db etc are; it cannot see those files - all it shows are Folders FaceAnalysis and WaldoData.
I have opened Editor preferences and entered my Adobe ID and the 2019 Serial number and then rebooted the PC.
Now have a working Main Catalog (Main Catalog temp 1) located in the same folder as my original Main Catalog.
G:\User\Photoshop Elements Catalogs\Main Catalog\Main Catalog\catalog files.* (my original catalog)
G:\User\Photoshop Elements Catalogs\Main Catalog\Main Catalog\Main Catalog temp 1\catalog files.* (the converted catalog)
If I look at the file sizes in the two catalogs they are very similar, if not identical e.g. "face.thumb.9.cache" is 154,933 KB in both places; obviously there are many more files in the temp 1 catalog.
I have several backups of my original catalog. I would like to rename temp 1 to just Main Catalog and move its files to G:\User\Photoshop Elements Catalogs\Main Catalog\Main Catalog.
