Tags are the easy way to classify and locate your media files. Multiple tags can be assigned to a single file without taking up additional space on your hard drive. All the information about a file can be described by a set of tags (title, rating, keywords, location, media format, copyright, camera model, color label, etc...).
Daminion makes a difficult job easy by automatically populating tags from your files’ metadata during the importing process. Other information, like Who and What (see picture) can easily be assigned by dragging-and-dropping, using the properties panel, or using the Quick Assigner.
As well as simple linear tags (title, image width, etc.), Daminion also supports complex hierarchical tags (keywords, locations, etc.) with no limitation on nesting levels. Using hierarchical tags you can describe your content much more precisely and, as a result, spend far less time locating your important files.
Unlike other tools for organizing content, Daminion will correctly write/read hierarchical keywords from/to IPTC/XMP. So your hierarchical structure won’t lose data when you export or move your files.
The properties panel shows all the media file information and can display complex hierarchical tags, too. Any changes you make can be undone right up to the moment you click &rsquosave&rsquo.
Move your mouse over a keyword on the Properties panel to see the complete hierarchical structure of the tag
