1  Workflow Discussions / Multi-User Configurations / Daminion 3.3 Released. Local-network-based photo management software on: July 11, 2014, 03:02:47 AM
Greetings,

Daminion 3.3 with more than 50 improvements was released recently.
http://blog.daminion.net/news/daminion-3-3-released

Major improvements:

  • Duplicate documents can be located and removed quickly by expanding the “Saved Searches” tag and clicking on the “Duplicates” value.
  • You can describe your content with new tags like Scene, Subject Code, and Intellectual Genre.
  • You can protect your tag taxonomy against screw-ups. Tags can be locked by admin for changes – users may assign or remove existing tags, but they can’t change the tag structure.
  • Synonyms and Tag Groups allow you to reduce the number of visible tags, making it easier to navigate through the tag tree. You can select the “Images” tag group to find JPEGs, TIFFs, PNGs and other images – you don’t have to check each of them individually.
  • Rendering speed of large images, especially TIFF images, in Full Screen mode has significantly increased, and thumbnails for shared catalogs are also displayed much faster.
  • New files are imported up to 5 times faster than before into the large server based catalogs
  • You can now sort items manually when a single collection tag is selected and, prepare them in a specific order when necessary for things like publications or presentations.
  • A new Expired License Date field will enable you to avoid expensive penalties for using images after their license dates have expired.
  • We have also added an experimental option whereby you can find all publications of a particular image, or images very similar to it, on the internet.
  • The “Compare Items” window has been significantly improved, and selecting the right file version is much easier than before.

3  Workflow Discussions / Multi-User Configurations / Daminion 2.0 Released. Inexpensive DAM solution on: November 13, 2013, 01:26:34 PM
Greetings,

Daminion Software, have released version 2.0 of their desktop client/server DAM system of the same name.  The new features include:

  • Improved export (no longer strips metadata and a preset editor)
  • Administrator control over import settings
  • Dropbox integration
  • Export metadata to CSV

There are some other bug fixes and smaller enhancements such as improved XMP support.  Taken collectively, these appear to be quite wide ranging in terms of general improvements.  This is from the Dropbox integration write-up on their blog.

“This experimental feature allows you to share your images with various devices such as Tablets, Macs, Mobiles or the Web. For example, you can select 50 Camera RAW images, drag them to a tag named Publish\Dropbox\MyIPADPresentation and all your images will be converted to iPAD-friendly JPEG format with 2000px resolution that can be found in the Dropbox\MyIPADPresentation. All image conversions and image optimizations will be performed on the fly.”

6  Workflow Discussions / Multi-User Configurations / Daminion 0.9.8 Released - Network friendly photo manager on: January 15, 2013, 01:09:00 AM
Hi there,

Just wanted to inform that our company unveils a new version of the DAM for small teams - Daminion 0.9.8b.
The new updated version of Daminion now has support for offline files and improved file/folder management capabilities, including:
  • Moving (drag and drop) files to folders
  • Adding sub-folders
  • Renaming folders
This latest version allows the location of folders to be updated (re-linked). For example, if a folder is moved to a location outside Daminion, it’s now possible to simply re-link to the new location without having to re-import the entire contents of the folder.

There are more than 20 other minor improvements and bug-fixes:

Standalone Standalone version is Free while Daminion Server is available at an affordable price (Home Server costs $195)

7  Software Discussions / Choosing Software/Other DAM Applications / Re: LR, MediaPro, EM - which is currently recommended? on: December 29, 2012, 03:04:20 AM
The latest Daminion 0.9.8 version is available for testing with improved File/Folder management capabilities:
http://daminion.net/user-forum/index.php?/topic/456-the-latest-daminion-builds/page__view__getnewpost

In this version the compatibility with standalone third-party photo organizers (like LR, MediaPro, IdImager) was improved: you can specify various tag hierarchy delimiters that helps you to easily migrate to Daminion. All image annotations will be automatically imported from the metadata according to IPTC/XMP/MWG/Native specifications in a range of media formats: All Camera RAW formats, raster and vector images (AI, EPS, InDD), MS Office, PDF, audio and video formats.

The next series of the file/folder management improvements are planned to the 0.9.9 version (Jan, 2013).

Hi Sim,

I am interested whether you found a solution that fits your requirements?
10  Software Discussions / Choosing Software/Other DAM Applications / Re: A simple and affordable DAM that can read LR embedded Keywords, and sort by them on: November 25, 2011, 01:22:26 AM
Daminion can read LR embedded keywords.

We've just released a new Daminion 0.8.7 version: http://daminion.net

Becky, using a standalone photo management software in a multi-user environment might cause the potential problems:

  • There is no guarantee that your media management system crashes and will damage your content due to simultaneous attempts to change it by multiple users.
  • Someone in your team can accidentally “screw up” your assets.
  • You can’t see the changes made by other users in the same media database till you restart the media database software, or refresh the opened catalog.
  • Users may configure access rights on the Windows NTFS level, but it is extremely laborious, inconvenient and limited.
  • You can’t limit an access to your content for users by roles: Restrict to download your hi-res photos for guests or restrict to users with Reader rights to change the content.

I guess the only safiest solution in your case is Portfolio (because you are on Mac). Because it's a true multi-user solution.

This is the most frequently asked question Smiley We have no plans to port Daminion for Mac at the moment.
Our roadmap for 2011 includes releasing the Daminion Server and continuously improving the products functionality, performance and stability.

But our Server is built on .NET platform that can be deployed on a Mac via Mono Framework. So I don't exclude the possibility to port the Server and Client to Mac in the future.

We don't test Daminion with virtual environment (like Parallels Desktop or Wine) on a Mac.

Hi Roelof,

I appreciate for your interest in Daminion!

The major benefits of Daminion (Server) over MediaPro
- Multiple users support
- Controls access to media content by user roles
- Version Control
- Multiple catalogs can be opened simultaneously as web-browser pages and photos can be moved between catalogs
- Open source catalog format based on SQLite

Just in case: some time ago we published a comparison between Daminion and Lightroom on our blog
where we compared file management features between the products.
