All my organization and labeling is gone when moved photos from ELEMENTS 6 to 13.

Can't tell you how disappointed I am in Photoshop 13. I just moved all my photos from Photoshop 6 to Photoshop 13. I had them all organized in group albums organized by dates with names and events. I moved them to Photoshop 13 and all that information is gone. I will be deleting Photoshop 13 and using Photoshop 6 on my old computer. Hate that I gave this company my money for this product.

How did you 'move' the photos? By importing in a new catalog or by converting your old catalogs?
There is nothing changed in the albums organization, but for tags categories, since PSE11, you have special category tabs for People, places and events. You can avoid the automatic conversion to the new scheme and keep your old PSE6 way simply by renaming the categories People, Places and Events to a new name like MyPeople, MyPlaces, MyEvents before doing the conversion.
That's what I did. Note that I don't use People recognition or geotagging.

I backed up my photos from 6 and then restored the backup onto 13.
