Here we are going to talk about very basic workflow of Backup/Restore between different versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements. Every latest version of Adobe Photoshop Version supports backward compatibility for Catalogs, which means that any catalog of older versions can be reused in upper versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements.

For example, in Adobe Photoshop Elements 9.0 workflow of placing on map is broken as blank screen is shown on any attempt to use Geo-tagging workflow. But if we take out files with GPS info and try to use the info on Flickr-maps, it works very well.
