Daminion 5.5 Released ~ a simple digital asset management solution for small and mid-sized teams

We are delighted to announce the release of Daminion 5.5, a simple digital asset management solution for small and mid-sized teams!

Web-client was significantly improved in this version so companies that have Mac computers can use Daminion to improve their workflows too.

Daminion 5.5 version released

Major improvements in this version include shared collections in web client that allow you to quickly share documents with colleagues and clients; faster batch tag-assignment; support for video playback in web client; drag’n’drop tag assignment in web client; faster optimization of the database; the “Does not contain” condition for some tags in advanced search.

Major Improvements

1. Shared collections

A great addition for teams who need to share files without having to give clients or colleagues direct access to the whole catalog. You can quickly share your documents now via Shared Collections in Web client with precise sharing options: expiration date, password-protected access, access to original hi-res file version. Learn more about shared collections.

2. Support for video playback in web client

Now MPEG4 (AVC codec) and WebM can be played directly from within web client, thus saving you from having to open these files in desktop video players. Support for other video formats is planned for future Daminion releases.

3. Drag’n’drop tag assignment in web client

Assigning tags to files in web client is now faster and more convenient. Tags can now be assigned by dragging and dropping selected items to the necessary tag in the browse panel. Learn more.

4. Faster batch tag-assignment in desktop client

Assigning multiple tags for multiple files is now up to 5 times faster.

5. Faster optimization of the database

The optimization process which helps keep the database up-to-date no longer hangs on large databases (more than 2 million files), and even runs significantly faster on small databases.

6. “Does not contain” condition added for some tags

The “Does not contain” condition has been added to Advanced Search for Title, Description, Comment, Rights Usage Terms, Imported By, and for all custom tags of long text format (should be set up to display in the Properties panel only) which makes your search results more precise.

Minor Improvements

  • A folder containing a certain file can now be opened directly from within Web Client via the Locate Button on the Properties panel. You must have access permissions to this folder
  • Alphabetic sort order for custom tags in the Custom Tags dialog window
  • Work faster with multiple catalogs opened simultaneously
  • Now possible to preview files in new tab in web client by clicking the file name
