Daminion 7.0 Release

We are happy to announce the release of Daminion 7.0 – an easy-to-use yet robust digital asset management (DAM) solution for teams and enterprises!

The latest version of Daminion comes with a set of major improvements such as a brand new interface for the desktop version, commenting in the web client, integration with CMS, extended support for new file formats, as well as a range of minor improvements.

1. Brand new interface for Daminion desktop client

Now you can switch between the dark and light interface in the desktop client just like you do in the web client.

2. Commenting in the web client

One of the most requested features, and a powerful tool for multi-user work, is now available in Daminion. Designers, marketers, and users from other departments can now collaborate when working on new projects using commenting in the web client. 

Comments describing what needs to be done or changed can be added to any part of the image. 

The ability to edit the comments, invite others to discussion threads, and receive comment notifications provides greater control over the workflow and keeps everyone updated on the most recent changes.

3. Integrate Daminion with CMS and other systems via embedded links

This new option saves you from having to download your images to the local drive and upload them to the corporate CMS. Instead, you can now publish the image on your website or blog directly from Daminion via embedded links. 

It takes just one click to set up the necessary export parameters and get a static link to the image that you can use to display it on your website or blog without using Daminion resources.

4. Added support for new modern formats: EXR, CR3, WEBP, HEIC

Daminion now natively supports the following file formats and displays original rather than generic previews of them: EXR, CR3, WEBP, and HEIC.

5. Better support for PSD, TIFF, and PNG  formats.

Daminion can now read 32 bit (HDR) TIFF and PSD images. We also handle certain specific TIFF files better and read and write EXIF tags to and from PSD files. Also, when exporting images to PNG, Daminion now preserves image transparency (including in vector images).

MINOR IMPROVEMENTS: 

  1. Tags can be sorted alphabetically in the web client independent of the hierarchy
  2. Custom tags can now be renamed (N.B. The change will be saved in the database only and will not be applied to the tag embedded in the metadata of the files)
  3. Daminion can now search in Folders in the web client
  4. Files can now be stored in a folder structure based on Creation DateTime when uploading the files via the web client
  5. Optimized XMP loading
