Daminion Server 6.2

After 5 months of intensive work, we are proud to announce the release of Daminion 6.2, a simple yet robust digital asset management (DAM) solution for small and mid-sized teams!

The new Daminion 6.2 version ships with several major improvements such as AI tagging, Synonyms for custom tags in the desktop client, Upload to a selected folder in the web client and Daminion cloud and PDF preview in the web client, as well as a range of other optimizations and enhancements.

Daminion 6.2 is available in both cloud and on-premises versions and works on many different platforms.

Major improvements include:

AI tagging

The most requested feature for Daminion is now available in both Daminion on-premises and cloud! Built on Google Vision, Daminion AI tagging automatically tags your image content with highly intelligent keywords and saves you and your employees hours of manual tagging time spent meticulously describing the visual content of your creative assets. Daminion AI tagging is not intended as a complete replacement for manual tagging, but rather as a handy tool to significantly speed up the workflow in your digital library.

Synonyms for custom tags

With Daminion’s custom tags you to overcome restrictions imposed by the default selection of tags available in other DAM systems, so you can organize your asset library in a thorough and business-related way. You can now benefit from assigning synonyms to custom tags in the same way as you would to default tags! Synonyms help you reduce the list of tags, avoid repetitive tags, and organize your assets in multiple languages if needed. Learn more about synonyms for custom tags here.

Upload to a selected folder

Organizing your files by default folder structure in the web client and Daminion cloud is no longer the only option! This new feature allows you to decide exactly where your new files will reside by uploading them directly to the selected folder. Find out more about uploading to the selected folder here.

PDF preview in the web client

The PDF preview option allows you to open your PDF files directly in your web browser without having to download each PDF file to view its contents. Learn more about PDF preview here.

  • PostgreSQL 11 recognition – Daminion now automatically detects the database engine version and ignores previous releases of PostgreSQL
  • Line wrapping in Title, Description and custom long-text fields in web client
