Daminion is the trusted multi-user digital photo management software of hundreds of companies because it makes ALL digital assets EASILY searchable by anyone in the organization. To read what some of our users have had to say regarding their experience with Daminion and our support, check out some of their testimonials and case-studies.
DAMINION - SERVER
DAMINION - STANDALONE
The server-based photo management software for small teams
- There are many digital photo and media management software programs, but... they’re all for standalone use only;
- There are many digital asset management solutions (DAM), but... they’re too expensive for small teams;
- Daminion is a true multi-user digital photo and document management software for small teams and creative professionals, at an affordable price.
Special low price for small teams
From the outset, Daminion has been developed for small teams with tight budgets. The pricing scheme is simple and affordable. You pay once, with none of the endless monthly fees demanded by web-hosted solutions.
Avoid Using Standalone Photo Managers with Shared Photo Archives
Some standalone digital photo management software programs work like File-Servers, where the catalog and files are located in shared network folders. This approach can have significant drawbacks.
Control access to your content
You can protect your centralized image library from accidental “screw-ups” or malicious acts on Functionality and Document levels.
Active Directory Support
Daminion offers two authentication modes:
- Daminion Server authentication mode
- Windows NT (Active Directory) authentication mode
Large teams with a lot of users might take advantage of the existing Windows NT/Active Directory based authentication
Avoid work being redone because you’ve lost your original versions! Version control means that you will never again lose a good idea because someone has overwritten your file edits. You can always easily find out who’s made what changes to your content - and why.
Why is a desktop solution better?
For large companies with multiple geographical locations, a web-based solution is an understandable choice. But, if your team is small, a desktop solution has several significant advantages:
- Better security - all your content remains inside your firewall
- More interaction, better performance, no web-browser limitations, and a comparable upgrade time.
Easy asset cataloging
Spending less time to search leaves you more time for your project work. Easy copyright tagging helps you to control the use of images and other content.
Instant access to any assets
Assets you can't find are JUST AS USELESS as assets that are completely lost!
Daminion’s easy-to-use , but nonetheless powerful, search capabilities include: Quick Search, Filter Content By Tags in combination with AND/OR operators, Advanced Search and Saved Searches.
Store data inside the files
All file information, including copyright information, is stored as metadata. Whenever you copy, email, or publish your asset all the file information travels along with the file. Ownership of an asset and the rights to use it are also included in the metadata.
Broad format support
Daminion supports the vast majority of media formats including: raster (JPEG, PSD, PNG, etc...), vector, camera RAW images, video, audio, InDesign, PDF, Microsoft Office documents. Besides media formats, Daminion can also read/write tags from/to XMP, IPTC, EXIF metadata in a wide range of media formats including video and camera RAW formats.
Import from other programs
The quickest way to get started with Daminion is to import your media collection from your current digital photo management system.
Integration with other systems
Metadata is the best way to exchange information between different systems. With XMP, you won’t have to depend on various API versions of various other systems. Daminion will read/write metadata in many formats including image, camera RAW, vector, video, audio and PDF files.
Export with optimization on demand
Export your media files, with selected conversion rules, with a single click. Your files will be optimized for uploading to Flickr or Facebook (as JPEG 1000 px). Or you can insert your optimized images into PowerPoint (as PNG 800 px - 72 dpi). Convert your files on demand without multiple file duplicates of different image sizes and formats!

WHAT USERS SAY
Gary S. Ownsby
In writing a Christmas letter to a relative far away, it was great to be able to locate various photos of our family so fast and put them into my letter. For the recipient, an lady in her mid-80's, photos mean the world to her as she hasn't seen most of her East Coast family for 30 years. Daminion made getting the photos easy and spiced up my letter. Great work!
"The more I use Daminion the more I appreciate its functionality. There seem to be new, neat features "popping up" the more I understand how to use the program. This is going to be a fantastic management tool for digital image assets. I just wanted to let the development team know that the feature set is terrific. Hope you don't wind up selling this to Adobe."
