A slight change in workflow can result in a huge improvement in productivity: Photo Library Software

July 02nd, 2016 by Anna

Photo Library Software

According to our research, every employee in a company spends an average of at least 1 hour a week searching for digital files. However, marketers and designers responsible for creating visual content, spend much longer.

If your business involves working with thousands of photos, videos and creative files, it won’t be long before you realize (if you haven’t already) that photo library software is a must-have tool when it comes to finding the right files in the fastest possible time.

This blog post will tell you all about

• the benefits of using photo library software;
• a poll to estimate whether or not your business needs a photo archiving tool;
• what your new workflow will look like;
• choosing the type of image library software that suits you best; and
• what we have to offer.

New Daminion 4.0. Protect your image annotations and find linked documents faster.

July 14th, 2015 by Anna

The new Daminion 4.0 version comes with two major improvements, a lot of minor ones and several bug-fixes.

1. Your tag structure (taxonomy) is now protected from unwanted changes during file import.

As you know, when Daminion imports images it reads the image metadata, saves it in the catalog and then displays it in the tag tree. This allows you to keep your database information synced with the metadata in imported files. But what if you want to import new stock images that may already contain large amounts of metadata that could easily mess up your existing tag structure?
The new Daminion 4.0 version can mark all newly imported tags as Unapproved, so you can easily separate imported tags from your approved tag structure (taxonomy).

Approved Unapproved Tags

2. Relationships between files.

Daminion 4.0 allows you to define relationships between files. For example, you can link and then display all artwork that uses a particular logotype. Photos can be linked to a model release agreement that features the linked photos, or you can find all source images and graphics used in a brochure or banner ad.

Linking Items

Links are bi-directional so you can for example specify that a Logotype that has been used on a Calendar contains a Font.

Interview with wine photographer Per Karlsson

June 10th, 2015 by Anna

Wine Photographer Per Karlsson

Paris-based, Swedish wine photographer and businessman Per Karlsson gave up a promising career as a top manager with an international corporation in order to follow his passion for photography and the wine travel business.

The photography, which started out as one of many other activities involved in promoting the wine travel business, has grown to such an extent that today Per has one of the largest collections of wine photography in the world.

Per’s photographic work has appeared in many leading wine publications including Decanter, the Wine Spectator and the Wine Companion. What’s more, he and his wife both write about wine in their own online publication, BKWine Magazine, and are regular contributors to Forbes’ wine-related column. They have also published five award-winning books on wine. And, needless to say, the photos that illustrate their articles and books are all taken by Per.

Best image sizes for publishing on social networks

May 25th, 2015 by Anna

Best Sizes for Publishing on Social Channels

Images play a vital role in content marketing, especially in the noisy social media environment. They support the information provided in your blog or social media posts and help make it stand out. For example, an A/B test on adding images to social sharing conducted by Buffet last year showed that tweets with pictures received:

  • 18% more clicks
  • 89% more favorites
  • 150% more retweets

However, if you maintain your company’s presence on several social media channels at once, you’ll have noticed that their image-size requirements can vary quite a lot.

A great supplement to Daminion for anyone filming/shooting in RAW

April 30th, 2015 by Anna

If you’re making films, music videos or commercials using RAW cameras and you’re not yet aware of this great new tool, allow us to introduce RAW4PRO software.

RAW4Pro

RAW4PRO accomplishes two tasks with just one click:

  1. it offloads your RAW DNG clips and JPG time lapses and
  2. it prepares small video proxies with time code and audio for easy playback/sharing/editing and cataloging.

RAW4PRO also allows you to see what each of your JPG time lapse sequences looks like. That’s why RAW4PRO is the perfect supplement to Daminion.

 

RAW4PRO Alex

‘RAW4PRO and Daminion make a great team: RAW4PRO prepares JPG time lapse previews and video proxies while Daminion provides cataloging and tagging. We use Daminion to catalog our footage not only because it’s an amazing Media Management System but also because it’s free! Originally designed as a photo cataloger, it works beautifully for videos and sound as well.’- Alex, the RAW4PRO developer.

The top 6 things you can’t do in Lightroom – and how to do them

April 01st, 2015 by Anna

There can be little doubt that Lightroom is more popular and closer to perfection than any other photo editing program. However, while browsing on the official Photoshop forum recently, I stumbled upon a long list of things that users would like Lightroom to improve. I was surprised to notice that most of the ideas and requests are 3 or 4 years old. And what’s more, the majority of them haven’t yet received the status of ‘under consideration’ or ‘planned’. I struggle to explain such a lack of attention from Adobe. Especially bearing in mind that all the features proposed would dramatically enhanced Lightroom.

With this in mind, I decided to take several of the most popular ideas (excluding those that can only be implemented by Adobe’s developers), read the threads, do some research and attempt to find solutions. As a result, I’ve compiled a list of plugins andthird-party software programs that are compatible with Lightroom. Luckily, some of them cover more than one issue at the same time.

New Daminion 3.7: Faster Viewing, Easier Administration, Better Organization

March 13th, 2015 by Murat

Daminion 3.7 - Digital Photo Management Software with Multi-User Support

The new Daminion 3.7 version features more than 20 improvements including faster viewing of large images, easier Daminion Server administration, grouping of similar images, and additional file format support. Plus several minor bug fixes.

Top 5 Improvements

  1. Large images can be displayed much faster – at the same speed as common JPEG images. Learn more…
  2. Integration with Windows Active Directory enables you to sync the Daminion Server with the company’s existing user database instead of manually entering user names and passwords. Users, in their turn, can be logged-in to Daminion Server by specifying their Windows NT/Active Directory passwords.
    Learn more…
  3. Similar images can now be grouped together and displayed more compactly, reducing the number of steps required to access your assets.
    Learn more…
  4. Added support for new media formats including MXF videos and Samsung SRW images. And you can now display quality thumbnails for Cineform video and AutoCAD (DXF/DWG) formats.
  5. The Tray (Lightbox) panel has been drastically improved and now, apart from saving its state after restarting the Daminion Client, it allows you to assign tags, save images as collections, and export images directly from the Tray. Files added to the Tray will still be there after restarting the program. For server catalogs you can even connect from another computer and see your Tray files.

Pixabay – free high-quality images for commercial use

March 03rd, 2015 by Murat
Pixabay - free high-quality images for commercial use

I’ve stumbled upon a nice stock photo service called Pixabay. If you think that this is just another photo stock service, you’re mistaken. It has more than 300k high-resolution images available for you to use for free for commercial purposes.

Pixabay - free high-quality images for commercial use

Perhaps, as well as microstock photos wiping out traditional stock photography, Pixabay and similar services might bite off a piece of the microstock cake in the future.

Pixabay - free high-quality images for commercial use

I guess the owners of this service aren’t thinking about monetization right now, and just trying to become the largest free stock photo service with quality content. Maybe Getty Images will buy them soon, just like they did with iStockPhoto when Getty Image’s founder Mark Getty said, “If some company wants to ruin my business, I want it to be my company.”

New Daminion 3.4 supports multiple shared catalogs

November 04th, 2014 by Murat
New Daminion 3.4 version released

With the new Daminion 3.4 you can create multiple SHARED catalogs and open them as multiple local catalogs in your Daminion Client!

Previous versions of Daminion limited users to 1 shared catalog per installed Daminion Server. Although the Daminion Server allows you to import and manage millions of files, it sometimes makes sense to split your digital asset library into several smaller parts, especially in an organization with many departments, where each one has its own particular digital archive.

This was our users’ most frequently requested feature – with more than 50 registered users requesting it – and it’s available at last.

Check out the short video below and discover how to create and manage multiple shared catalogs in the new 3.4 version of Daminion Server

Daminion 3.4 has also benefited from dozens of minor improvements and bug fixes.

New Daminion 3.3. Better and Faster

July 03rd, 2014 by Murat
New Daminion 3.3 version released

With more than 50 new features and improvements, Daminion 3.3 enables you to describe your digital content more precisely and find your documents much faster. And you can annotate more documents at the same time than ever before.

  • You can now quickly find duplicate assets and get rid of them. You can describe your content with new tags like Scene, Subject Code, and Intellectual Genre. You can also protect your tag taxonomy against screw-ups. Tags can be locked by admin for changes – users may assign or remove existing tags, but they can’t change the tag structure.
  • Synonyms and Tag Groups allow you to reduce the number of visible tags, making it easier to navigate through the tag tree. You can select the “Images” tag group to find JPEGs, TIFFs, PNGs and other images – you don’t have to check each of them individually.
  • Rendering speed of large images, especially TIFF images, in Full Screen mode has significantly increased, and thumbnails for shared catalogs are also displayed much faster.
  • You can now sort items manually when a single collection tag is selected and, prepare them in a specific order when necessary for things like publications or presentations.
  • A new Expired License Date field will enable you to avoid expensive penalties for using images after their license dates have expired.
  • We have also added an experimental option whereby you can find all publications of a particular image, or images very similar to it, on the internet.
  • The “Compare Items” window has been significantly improved, and selecting the right file version is much easier than before.
  • Plus many other minor improvements and bug-fixes!

Daminion 3.0 Released

March 20th, 2014 by Murat

The new Daminion 3.0 version allows you to limit the access of certain groups of users to certain documents. Now your digital repository can be protected on the functionality level (by user roles) as well as on the document level.

Another cool feature of version 3.0 is the ability to import images directly from mobile devices and digital cameras. Professional designers can import their Large Photoshop (PSB) images. The new version of Daminion can import people from Picasa people/faces as well as from other DAM programs that can write faces into XMP/MWG regions.

Below is a list of improvements and bug-fixes implemented since the last minor update

Improved Access Control

It’s now possible to restrict access to individual documents, so that only certain users or groups of users are allowed to see them.

For example, if several designers or architects are working on different projects, you can specify who can access which documents. So, specialists will not see each other’s documents unless the administrator allows them to do so.

How to protect access to documents

  1. Launch the Daminion Client and connect to your shared catalog
  2. Go to the main menu “Catalog” and select the “Access Control” option
  3. You will see that all Daminion Users are listed below the Access Control option in the Catalog Tags
Access Control

Only the administrator can see all existing groups. Other users will see the Public, Private and groups where they were included.

Users can be put into groups. To make files either public or private for certain groups of users simply drag them to an appropriate tag in the Access Control section of your Catalog Tags tree or right click on the selected items and navigate to the “Set Access Permissions…” menu option

Set Access Permissions

Import directly from mobile devices and digital cameras

If you connect your mobile device or your digital camera to your computer it will be available for selection as soon as you click the “Add Files” button.

Direct import from mobile devices and digital cameras

The “Browse for Files…” option allows you to specify which files to import from your device. The “Browse for All Files…” option will scan all files in your device and select them for importing.

Daminion 2.5 Released

December 26th, 2013 by Murat

A new Daminion 2.5 version has been released with many improvements, including batch renaming, the stamping of exported images with watermarks, the creation of contact sheets that can be printed or saved as PDF documents, and more than 50 other minor improvements and bug-fixes. Below you will find detailed information about the new changes and bug fixes.

Below is a list of improvements and bug-fixes implemented since the last minor update

Batch Renaming

Files can be renamed according to a renaming template (Edit > Batch Rename (Move)). It was possible to do this earlier in the Import Window, but now files can be renamed after importing or during exporting images. Single item renaming is also supported via the Edit > Rename (F2) command.

Improved Export

You can protect your exported images from unauthorized usage by stamping them with a watermark image that contains your copyright and logotype.

Protect your exported images from unauthorized usage by watermarks

Each export preset can be tied to a watermark preset.

To create and apply a new watermark, open the Export Preset Editor, select a preset in the left panel, (let’s say JPEG 2000×2000) and click on the drop down menu in the Export Preset preferences panel (right panel).
