Can I load Elements 10 Organizer with face, location and caption info from other organizers?

I just purchased and installed Elements 10. It comes with an organizer that looks pretty interesting. But I'm not sure interesting enough to lose all the work I've done over the last couple of years getting all of the face recognition, locations and captions done and correct in Windows Live Photo Gallery. 20K+ is just too many pictures to have to go back through again.

Does anyone know if there is any way to get the face info, captions and tags from WL Photo Gallery moved into Elements Organizer 10?

Thanks in advance,

If you tag a photo in WLPG and then import it into PSE, PSE should pick up the keyword tags applied within WLPG.

However, if the photo is already imported into both PSE and WLPG, any subsequent changes to tags made within one won'tbe seen by the other. They both keep a file on the side that caches the tags applied to photos, and those files aren't updated when another program updates a photo's tags.
