A new Daminion v3.4 was released yesterday with a new cool feature. Now you can create multiple shared catalogs.

Previous versions of Daminion limited users to 1 shared catalog per installed Daminion Server. Although the Daminion Server allows you to import and manage millions of images and videos, it sometimes makes sense to split your digital asset library into several smaller parts, especially in an organization with many departments, where each one has its own particular digital archive. Or if for example you want to split your portfolio photo archive library from the family one.

There are several other nice improvements, like the debug mode for launching external applications with arguments, for example: the ExifTool.

Release notes and download links can be found here:

dbBestflow is a very good resource to look around. Here's the link to the backup information:

I am hoping that I could get some suggestions from anybody on this Forum.

I have a situation about how to allocate or set up a practical / easy backup strategy. I have discovered that one of my DR (RAID) is almost full. And a second DR should be full in a couple of months.

Let me show you the quasi system that I have setup:

I'm using a Mac OS 10.8.5 single user.

1 TB int HD that don't use it much since I rely mostly on Ext HD - just had it replaced a week ago after running great for 4 yrs.

DR  #1
RAID 1 - 4 yrs old
965G used - 40G avail

Partition One - 4 yrs old
775 G used - 228G avail
Use it as a Main DR, incl pix, videos and documents

Partition Two - LR Cat
900G used - 100G avail

DR#3 - 4 yrs old
Partition One
Time Mach
430G used - 572G avail

Partition Two
LR Backup 70G use -928G avail

I also have a couple of older DR with extra copies of most of my images, but they could go bust anytime since they are a bit older. I'm using them as long as they run

I just purchased a 3 TB Ext HD.

I use mostly my computer for my photography hobby as well as building up a small video MP3 Library.

I am now realizing that perhaps RAID 1 was not a great strategy for me. It cut the capacity of my DR to half. After reading on line that RAID 1 is not a substitute to a regular backup strategy. I'm now wondering if I should format the RAID DR and start all over again.

However, I'm not sure how I could access all the files without capturing the mirrored files.

I would like to know if I could get some suggestions.

BTW I also have SuperDuper but I have not used it for quite sometime. I have been creating backups manually, but I think I might start using SuperDuper or something similar. Thanks for any help

Hey All,

I'm a convert first from iMatch, then to Media Pro.  My files have got dot limited supplementalcategories fields in them, which Media Pro recognized okay and created hierarchical keywords, but LightRoom doesn't.

Is there a way to:

1) Get LightRoom to create the hierarchical keywords? I've parsed out a list of the keywords using exiftool, but trying to do an import in Lightroom has thus far been an exercise in fruition.
2) Assign the keywords as defined in the supplementalcategories?

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Daminion 3.3 with more than 50 improvements was released recently.

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.

I routinely use a clone of the database and Lightroom 5 to travel etc. I just clone it back to main computer, perhaps tell LR where to find the images and all is good.
Now the main computer shows the database and folders fine but collection thumbnails are looking for the external drive instead of the main computer.
ie if I click "show in finder" in a collection, the message is that it can't find the source and gives the external drive as what it's looking for.
I've restarted, optimized the catalog and let it find the source files again. No change.
Any thoughts?

It was reported today on the website that Aperture is being discontinued by Apple when Yosemite is released.  I talked with a couple of the top contributors to the Aperture and iPhoto Apple forums and they heard that the info was legit but not officially confirmed by Apple. We'll have to wait and see.

If true the Aperture is going the way of iDVD, iWeb and the Dodo bird.   Sad

Maybe not.  See my post in the topic regarding the future of Aperture. Sad
