Daminion 3.7 - Digital Photo Management Sofсtware 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.

  5. 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.
  6. 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. For server catalogs you can even connect from another computer and see your Tray files.
