Filtering and Searching in Web Client

Filtering in Web Client

Specifying your filtering criteria in the Daminion Web Client Filters panel enables you to find the images you require easily and fast.

Use Boolean Search and Filtering to combine tags with AND, OR and NOT operators to produce more relevant search results.

In our example, we need to find all images of Kitchen or Dinining room  that were shot anywhere but Colorado, USA. To do this, we expand the necessary tags (in our case Room Type and Place) and check the respective tag values.

To hide a tag from search, click the tree dots icon next to it and select Hide.

To display a hidden tag,  click once again the three dots button next to it and select Show.

You can change the boolean operator by clicking it and changing it from AND to OR or vice versa.

As you can see, the search result has changed as there are fewer files with the tags “Living Room” AND “Kitchen” in our catalog.

In the same way, you can widen or narrow your search parameters by checking further tag values or unchecking the ones selected. Please read the article “Web Access” to find out how to customize the Filters panel and display currently needed tags only.

Searching in Web-Client 

To find an image with a particular tag, enter a searchable word or phrase in the search box on the toolbar.

By default, Daminion searches for files everywhere and shows hints on where this tag value can also be found. If you know where to search for the tag, feel free to click a specific tag to be searched in.

In the example below we searched for “attic” in Everywhere and got 11 search results.

Please note that quick search uses the AND operand as default. If you want to make your search results more specific, please combine quick search with filtering.
