DAMINION 2.0 RELEASED

by Murat on November 10th, 2013

Daminion 2.0 Released

Daminion 2.0 Release version is now officially available to download.

Although the release version has only just become available, hundreds of organizations, (including NASDAQ listed companies) and thousands of individuals already trust the management of their media content to Daminion. This is something we are very proud of, and it will encourage us to continue improving our product, making it better and better with each new version.

Below is a list of improvements and bug-fixes implemented since the last minor update. As always, you are very welcome to share your feedback on our users’ forum or with us directly via the support form.

Improved Export

  • Daminion can now preserve image metadata while exporting images
  • It’s possible to export images to sRGB profile or preserve a source image ICC profile
  • Export preset editor that allows you to customize your export transformation presets


Export Preset Editor

Lock Import Settings

Some import settings (file and folder naming rules, a way of importing) can be locked by the administrator (“Catalog > Import Settings”)

Export Preset Editor

User-based User Interface customization

Interface settings are now stored inside the catalog individually for each user so you can see your customizations by logging in from any computer.

Experimental Dropbox integration

This experimental feature allows you to share your images with various devices such as Tablets, Macs, Mobiles or the Web. For example, you can select 50 Camera RAW images, drag them to a tag named Publish\Dropbox\MyIPADPresentation and all your images will be converted to iPAD-friendly JPEG format with 2000px resolution that can be found in the Dropbox\MyIPADPresentation. All image conversions and image optimizations will be performed on the fly. To remove an image, just clear this tag. The publishing process will be under your control: you will see which images have been published and where.
Please be aware that this is an experimental feature aimed at getting your feedback. To activate this feature go to the main menu: Help > Experimental > Create Publish Panel. Take a look at this short video demonstrating the Dropbox add-on in action and don’t forget to share your feedback (no matter whether it’s positive or negative):

Export to CSV

In addition to the “Import from CSV” feature it’s now possible to export media document tags to a CSV document (Comma Separated Values).

Export to CSV

Added 15k limitation to Daminion Standalone version

Daminion’s test period is over; however, you can still continue to use Daminion for free, with one limitation: you can import a maximum of 15k files per catalog. There are several ways to increase this limit: http://daminion.net/order/buy-daminion.

Our active contributors are eligible to receive free Daminion Standalone licenses. Each case will be considered individually – please contact us by a method you’ve already used to communicate with us.

  • Helen

    Have just downloaded Daminion 2.5 Do I need to pay for the full server version to work across a network with up to 55 staff accessing the photo library? Is the license for one year only or unlimited? Helen

  • daminion

    Hi Helen! The Daminion Server trial version that you downloaded from our web-site is the fully-functional version but you can evaluate it during 2 months only. It also has a limitation for 10 concurrent connections. To provide an access to your staff I suggest you to start playing with the current Daminion Trial version and then consider obtaining a commercial license.

    Daminion Server licensing is based on concurrent connections. So you need to decide how many staffs might access to the server at any one time.

    You can create an unlimited number of users with any number of connections. For example, with a 10-connections package you can create 15 users; however, only 10 of them can access the server at any one time

    Our licenses are lifetime, without endless monthly or yearly payments. You will also receive the Maintenance along with your purchase that provides free upgrades for one year, even across major version releases. After maintenance period will be ended you can still continue using your Daminion.

    PS. Did you receive my response to your email?
    PSS. The latest Daminion 3.0 version can be available on our forum, and will be available publicly during a few days.
