Convert from FTM for windows to FTM for Mac - how do I do this?

I have a copy of FTM 2011on my PC but am shortly switching over to a Mac. I know that there is a Mac version of FTM. What i want to know is if I will be able to easily convert from one to the other? Can I import the FTM 2011 data into FTM for Mac v2? Or do I need to export the data to a GEDCOM file first (losing any photos along the way)?

The File Migration Utility that ships with the FTM Mac 2 CD (but needs to be installed on a Windows computer) should convert an FTM 2011 file OK.

Alternatively, and not as good, FTM Mac 2 will import a GEDCOM from FTM 2011
