The multi-user photo management software for small teams

  • There are many digital photo management software programs, but... they’re all for standalone use only;
  • There are many enterprise level digital asset management solutions (DAM), but... they’re too expensive for small teams;
  • Daminion is a true multi-user digital photo and document management software for small teams and creative professionals, at an affordable price.

Instant access to any assets

Assets you can't find are JUST AS USELESS as assets that are completely lost!
Daminion’s easy-to-use, but nonetheless powerful, search capabilities include: Quick Search, Filter Content By Tags in combination with AND/OR operators, Advanced Search and Saved Searches.

Easy asset cataloging

Spending less time to search leaves you more time for your project work. Easy copyright tagging helps you to control the use of images and other content. Daminion can also tag your images automatically using AI. Test-drive Daminion's auto-tagging now.

Broad format support

Daminion supports the vast majority of media formats including: raster (JPEG, PSD, PNG, etc...), vector (AI, EPS, InDesign, SVG), camera RAW images, video, audio, PDF, Microsoft Office documents. Besides media formats, Daminion can also read/write tags from/to XMP, IPTC, EXIF metadata in a wide range of media formats including video and camera RAW formats.

Control access to your content

You can protect your centralized image library from accidental “screw-ups” or malicious acts on Functionality and Document levels.

Avoid Using Standalone Photo Managers with Shared Photo Archives

Some standalone digital photo management software programs work like File-Servers, where the catalog and files are located in shared network folders. This approach can have significant drawbacks.

Store data inside the files

All file information, including copyright information, is stored as metadata. Whenever you copy, email, or publish your asset all the file information travels along with the file. Ownership of an asset and the rights to use it are also included in the metadata.

Affordable price for small and mid-sized teams

From the outset, Daminion has been developed for small and mid-sized teams with tight budgets. The pricing scheme is simple and affordable. You can select between subscription and lifetime licenses. Check out our pricing.

Authentication modes

Daminion offers three authentication modes:

  • Daminion Server security
  • Windows or Active Directory security (User Mapping)
  • Windows or Active Directory security (Group Mapping)

Large teams with multiple users can take advantage of the existing Windows or Active Directory based authentication, which allows you to map existing network users or groups with Daminion so that they can use their Windows/Active Directory logon credentials when logging in to the database.


Version Control

Avoid work being redone because you’ve lost your original versions! Version control means that you will never again lose a good idea because someone has overwritten your file edits. You can always easily find out who’s made what changes to your content - and why.

Import from other programs

The quickest way to get started with Daminion is to import your media collection from your current digital photo management system.

Why is a desktop solution better?

For large companies with multiple geographical locations, a web-based solution is an understandable choice. But, if your team is small, a desktop solution has several significant advantages:
  • Better security - all your content remains inside your firewall
  • More interaction, better performance, no web-browser limitations, and a comparable upgrade time.

Integration with other systems

Metadata is the best way to exchange information between different systems. With XMP, you won’t have to depend on various API versions of various other systems. Daminion will read/write metadata in many formats including image, camera RAW, vector, video, audio and PDF files.

Export with optimization on demand

Export your media files, with selected conversion rules, with a single click. Your files will be optimized for uploading to Flickr or Facebook (as JPEG 1000 px). Or you can insert your optimized images into PowerPoint (as PNG 800 px - 72 dpi). Convert your files on demand without multiple file duplicates of different image sizes and formats!
