To start working with Auto-tagging in Daminion, you first need to configure Google Cloud Vision API Key.

To do this, log into your account in Google Cloud and go to the Google Cloud Console.

Now you need to create a new project or select the existing one from under the Project tab.

If you want to create a new project, click “New Project” in the upper right corner. Alternatively, select a project from the list of existing projects.

Click the project’s name to open it. When the project is opened, click Navigation Menu and select “API & Services > Dashboard”.

Now you need to enable Cloud Vision API. To do this, click the “ENABLE APIS AND SERVICES” button.

Enabling APIs and Services

In the search bar, search for Cloud Vision API…

…and click it to enable.

Cloud Vision API will be activated for the selected project.

Now you need to create Google Cloud Vision key which will be used by Daminion to generate AI labels.

To do this, click Navigation menu, select “IAM & admin > Service accounts”.

In the window that opens, click “Create Service Account”.

Set up the name, ID and optionally add the description.

In the next step, set up a role or leave it by default and click “Continue”.

In the last step, optionally grant users access to this service account and create the key.

If you forgot to create the key during the last step, you can do this later.

In the menu “Service accounts for project “Project Name”, click “Actions > Create key”.

In the window that opens, select “JSON” as the key format and click “Create”.

You will be prompted to automatically download the key. Confirm the download and activate the key in Daminion. Learn how to do this here.
