Daminion 0.9b Released
A new minor Daminion build is now available to download. Below you’ll find a list of changes to Daminion since the 0.8.9.477 version.
To get the latest version of the program visit our Download page.
- Added: Camera Importer
- You can now import photos into Daminion from your digital cameras and removable devices. A list of the removable devices appears in the drop down menu of the Add Files button immediately after you insert a flash-card into your card-reader or connect a removable drive.
- You can preview the images to be transferred. Images and Videos can be grouped by Creation Date, Folder or Media Type. Hovering the mouse over a thumbnail displays a large tool tip with a medium-sized image preview allowing you to see the image in greater detail.
- Media files can be renamed during the transfer using a handy renaming function. Files can be imported to your computer and then either imported into Daminion’s local catalog or uploaded to your server computer and imported to a shared catalog (via Daminion Server).
