I am using Photoshop Elements 10 and have a lot of photos in the catalog. I want to user Elements on a other pc to and keep both Elements use the same photo's and the same Albums and tags.
The photo's are stored on a share on one pc. When making a backup thru the Elements menu the files that are created are inclusive the photo's seeing the size of the backup folder. That is to much. I only want to backup the tags and albums and then load the folder with photo's into the new Elements installation.

Is it possibe to backup Elements without the photo's? For example: copy the catalog file which is 10 MB and then copy it to the new installation of elements, load the photo's and use the old catalog?
