When you upgrade to Photoshop Elements 10 from 9, all of your settings, including Albums and Keyword Tags, will transfer.

If you go from older versions to newer versions, skipping several in between, you may loose some items. This is detailed here: Common catalog issues | Upgrade | Elements 6 or later Organizer

The missing menus in Elements 9 is caused by an issue with not using the correct display settings, detailed here: Menus missing | Elements 8, 9 Organizer | Windows

However, this was changed with version 10. The menus will display with your current display settings.

I have PSE3 on Windows XP. If I install PSE10 on my Macbook Air, will I be able to transfer my photos and their tags? If so are their any points to watch out for?

How do I transfer photos from Photoshop elements 5 to Photoshop elements 9 with tags in tact on a windows 7 system?

I tagged hundreds of photos using PE5 (originally used with XP and then reinstalled on Windows 7) before I realised they were unable to be backed up and then that PE 5 and Windows 7 were incompatible. We now have PE8 and I would like to know how I can transfer all the information across without having to import the photos and do all the tags again.
