Daminion 6.8 release

Daminion 0.9b Released

A new minor Daminion build is now available to download. Below you’ll find a list of changes to Daminion since the version.

To get the latest version of the program visit our Download page.


  • Added: Camera Importer
    • You can now import photos into Daminion from your digital cameras and removable devices. A list of the removable devices appears in the drop down menu of the Add Files button immediately after you insert a flash-card into your card-reader or connect a removable drive.
    • Daminion Camera Importer

    • You can preview the images to be transferred. Images and Videos can be grouped by Creation Date, Folder or Media Type. Hovering the mouse over a thumbnail displays a large tool tip with a medium-sized image preview allowing you to see the image in greater detail.
    • Media files can be renamed during the transfer using a  handy renaming function.  Files can be imported to your computer and then either imported into Daminion’s local catalog or uploaded to your server computer and imported to a shared catalog (via Daminion Server).
    • This is the very first version of the Camera Importer. As such, it will be undergoing continual improvement. For example, we’ll be adding a backup option and the ability to assign tags to imported images
  • The “Rescan Folders” feature has been partially implemented. It will be totally rewritten for the next minor version (a few minor bugs will be fixed and performance will be optimized).
