With more than 50 new features and improvements, Daminion 3.3 enables you to describe your digital content more precisely and find your documents much faster.

  • You can describe your content with new tags like Scene, Subject Code, and Intellectual Genre.

  • 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.

1.0 RC2(833) Release Candidate | June 22, 2013

  • Fixed a bug when .xmp sidecars were not created for RAW images without an existing xmp block
  • Fixed a bug with rendering video thumbnails

 

1.0 RC2(831) Release Candidate | June 20, 2013

Major Improvements:

  • Access to your centralized image and document archive library can now be restricted by User Roles
  • The new Auto Sync-Folders feature allows you to monitor selected folders for changes and new file additions, and automatically syncs them with Daminion, without the need for user intervention.
  • Improved Color Management for RAW images. RAW images also import up to 3 times faster.
  • New Tags: Rights Usage Terms, Item ID, Import related tags, Audio Tags
  • Many other improvements and bug fixes

Note: With this version you'll need to upgrade all your Daminion Clients manually because all connections between Server and Client are now secure and old client versions don't "understand" the new server. All future Daminion Client updates will be automatic.

Use of User Roles to restrict access to your centralized digital image archive

The new version of Daminion provides different levels of access to shared catalogs managed by Daminion Server. Users with an Editor role can import and edit images and image annotations (tags), while users with a Viewer role can only search for and view digital media documents. The User Roles feature is only available in the Daminion Server Team version, i.e. not in the Daminion Server Home and Pro versions.

Auto-Sync Folders

The "Auto Sync-Folders" feature monitors selected folders for changes and new file additions, and automatically syncs them with Daminion without user intervention.

Improved support for Camera RAW images

  • Camera RAW images (including NEF and CR2 formats) with embedded Adobe RGB profiles are now correctly displayed in thumbnail and full screen modes when CMS is turned on.
  • Drastically improved import speed and faster thumbnail updates for Camera RAW images (up to 3-x times faster)
  • RAW images with missing built-in JPEG previews are now correctly displayed if a medium-res thumbnail is available.
  • Added new DCRAW 9.18 version that supports a lot of new camera models, including: Canon: 6D, EOS-M, G15, S110, SX50HS, A3300, C500; Fuji: X-E1, XF1, F800EXR, HS50, X20, X100S, SL1000; Leica: D-LUX6, V-LUX4; Nikon: D600, J2, P7700; Olympus: E-PL5, XZ-2, XZ-10; Panasonic: FZ200, G5, LX7; Pentax: K-7, K-5 II, K-5 II s; Samsung: NX210, EX2F, NX300; Sony: A99V, NEX-6, RX1

New Tags

Several new tags have been added to improve Daminion's cataloging capabilities

  • Right Terms Usage
  • ItemID. Sorting items by Item ID displays them in the order they were imported.
  • Audio Tags (Composers and Conductors)
  • Import related tags (Import Session ID, Imported By, Import Date)

New PostgreSQL version

  • Daminion now ships with the most recent PostgreSQL 9.2 version, which contains a number of improvements and security fixes. Daminion is no longer tied to any particular version of PostgreSQL. You can update it separately from Daminion. However, please note that PostgreSQL doesn't update the existing database. Instead, it creates a new database and new program files.
  • Note also that Daminion will install PostgreSQL 9.2 only for fresh Daminion Server installations.

  • Quick, advanced and saved searches
  • Version control
  • Export on demand with transformation presets
  • Powerful properties panel
  • New interface with draggable panels and various view modes.
  • Simultaneous works with multiple catalogs that feature different tabs, similar to modern web-browsers that can open web-pages
  • Catalogs lock in relative paths to imported files. No worries over losing links to your files even if you store your folders on an external storage drive. If files or catalogs are re-located, all links inside the catalogs will always correctly point to files on the same drive or in the same folder.
