Daminion 0.9.8b. Improved File/Folder Management

Daminion 0.9.8 – minor update now available to download.

We’ve received many requests from our users to incorporate file/folder management into Daminion. So now, with the new version of the program, you can:

– Move (Drag) files to a folder
– Add sub-folders
– Rename folders

With the 0.9.8 version of Daminion you can also update (re-link) a folder’s location. For example, if you move a folder to any location outside Daminion, it’s now possible to update the folder’s location in Daminion without re-importing the whole folder. To do this, simply right click on a folder in the Tags tree and select the “Re-link folder…” option.

Other Improvements

  • Added support for offline files
  • Clicking on a Read only tag in the Properties panel fires a filter by this tag
  • By default, Tags for RAW files are written to the .xmp sidecars
  • Image Orientation is now extracted from RAW JPEG preview (instead of the original RAW image)
  • Daminion can now read metadata from RAW files that have been changed by Lightroom
  • It’s now possible to specify which media formats will be imported during rescan
  • We’ve added the color green to the Tags tree in “Assign Mode” – please let us know if you think it looks ugly!
  • Added an option to select a tag hierarchy delimiter to improve compatibility with standalone third-party photo organizers.
  • Added a “Cut” and “Paste as Sub-Tag” option to the context menu in the Tags tree.
  • Added Ctrl + Ins, Shift + Ins, Shift + Del hot key support to the Properties panel.
  • Assigning Tag to Items from the Tags tree context menu now switches the tree to “Assign Mode”.
  • Added new 9.0.9 version of the ExifTool
  • Minor improvements
