Creating Tag Values in the Tags Panel

In the web catalog, click the heading of the respective tag to expand it. Then click the little plus icon to switch from filtering mode to create new tags.

In the window that opens, enter the tag value in the entry box and click Create.
If you want to create multiple tags at the same time, click the plus icon (1).  If the tag was entered incorrectly, you may delete it by clicking the bin icon (2). To create hierarchy, please use backslash “\”.

Please note that the tag values created in the Tags Panel are automatically suggested for use when tagging in the Properties panel or Tag editor.

To create sub-tags under the existing tag, hover your mouse over the tags to display the three dots icon next to it.

Click the three dots icon and select “Add”.

In the windows that opens, create new sub-tags.

You can use the same menu to edit tags or delete them.


Drag’n’Drop Tagging in the Tags Panel

Select one or several files in the thumbnails window, hold down the left mouse button, and drag and drop the files to the certain tag as shown on the screenshot below:


Tagging in the Properties Panel

In the browser window, click the image you want to tag to open it in full screen. Click the 12  icon in the upper right-hand corner to display the Properties panel.


In the Properties panel, click the Description Tab to expand it and start assigning tags.

Hierarchical tags are created in the same way as in the Tags panel – each hierarchy level is delimited by a backslash “\” and multiple tag values are separated commas.

If a tag value already exists in the database, Daminion will auto-suggest it as soon as you type the first letters.

In order to delete a mistakenly assigned tag from an image, just hover the mouse pointer over it and click the X icon.



Click the    icon to display all files which have the same set of tags

Note: In the Properties panel all existing tags are displayed and cannot be customized to show fewer tags. Additionally, the tags cannot be assigned to more than one image at the same time. All this can, however, be done in the Tag Editor.


Tag Editor

The Tag Editor allows you to assign tags to multiple images at once and customize the list of displayed tags.

To open the Tag Editor, select one or more images in the Browser window, click Selected on the toolbar, and select Edit tags.

Alternatively, click the pencil icon on any of the selected images.

The following window appears:
