Complete pooter thicko here. I have Elements 4 installed and in regular use but I am about to install Elements 9. If I uninstall Elements 4 is there a chance of me losing images? Also will Elements 9 transfer over all tags from 4?
Go easy on me pleeeease.

I believe that when you install Elements 9 it will give you the option to uninstall any previous versions. You won't lose any of your images and tags should stay intact. However, if you have any plug-ins I think you will have to re-install them.
Good luck.

Will E9 transfer the organiser tags etc from E4? I have around 10,000 images and I don't want to have to organise them again.

I changed from elements 6 to 7, No problems. Just a prompt to convert to the newer elements.
