We decided to drop the price for Daminion, and release multiple Daminion versions:
  • Daminion Free - Free (can be imported up to 15k files per one catalog)
  • Daminion Standard - $49 (can be imported up to 50k files per one catalog)
  • Daminion Pro - $99 (without limitations for number of files per catalog)

Just to clarify, with the Free and Standard versions you can only open one catalog ?

If so, is that one in total or one at a time ?

You can create and open several local catalogs simultaneously with Free and Standard versions.

No, I never test it. I only install it to have a look, and after that uninstall it again.

Excellent :Thmbsup:.

Since we've discussed on this forum what the restrictions for the free version would end up being, it's probably worth noting that it appears that the limitation is on the number of files per database. The free version can store up to 15,000 files in each database.

Also, for anyone who has actively helped test the beta versions, you might be interested in this line:

The license pricing is certainly understandable and (IMO) reasonable. That alone is nice to see with this type of product. :)

Greetings!

A new Daminion v3.4 was released yesterday with a new cool feature. Now you can create multiple shared catalogs.

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 images and videos, 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. Or if for example you want to split your portfolio photo archive library from the family one.

There are several other nice improvements, like the debug mode for launching external applications with arguments, for example: the ExifTool.

Release notes and download links can be found here

For anyone that is interested, there's a 15% discount on any version for the next ~6 hours ... wish I'd known that was coming up a couple of weeks ago.  :)

I'm running the Home Server version and it beats all the free ones I tried, (and that was quite a few).

Hi! The new Daminion 4.0 was released last week. This update has 2 major improvements:

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


2. You can now define relationships between files ( quickly find and view all related artwork, projects, images, etc).

For more details, visit : http://blog.daminion.net/news/daminion-4-0/

Hello, everyone - I have downloaded the current version of Daminion... Does the program allow for customizable/searchable columns and tags? I want to catalog all of my digital files and my physical library of books, documents, etc. in one program. I would appreciate it someone who is knowledgeable in the program could give me some feedback.

Many thanks!!

I guess my reply is bit late, but anyway: yes, you in Daminion can customize your tags and search for more than 50 standard tags plus you can create your own user-defined tags. Daminion supports at lot of media formats, including images, vector images, documents, videos, audio, CAD, etc... All file formats can be managed withing the single interface.

A new Daminion 4.5 version was released recently with 20+ improvements:

Major Improvements

  • A new lightweight web-client allows you to access Daminion Server to search, browse, view, and download your digital assets on any device
  • A real-time File Watching Service now tracks changes in outside file systems and reflects them in Daminion as soon as they occur.
  • Usage Purpose Tracking allows you to keep tabs on when, where and by whom your assets have been used.
  • Users Roles per Catalog. Specify who can and who cannot access particular catalogs.
  • User management via web-browser. You can now create, edit and manage users via the web-client without actual accessing the server PC.
  • Improved file format support. Better support for AI/EPS, support for SVG, updating XMP of PDF, etc...



Other Improvements
  • Added support for IBM/Lotus Domino LDAP authentication
  • Number of connected users and catalog database version are now displayed in the admin panel.
  • Report after rescan. A full rescan report is now available via Catalog > Rescan Reports, or by right clicking on the rescan progress indicator.
  • Groups added into Saved Searches
  • Custom tags are included in Quick Search
  • Documents and Vector images stored on a local server-based PC can be copied to the local client-based PC
  • Scroll position in the right-hand Properties panel is now remembered when changing item selection
  • Added Fonts tag. Mapped to XMP: Fonts
  • Added an option to the tag tree context menu to display the selected tag in the second panel. Ideal when you need to reorder values within the same tag - simply drag them from one tag panel to another.
  • Offline files can now be viewed as Full Screen or Mid-Size JPEG previews
  • Daminion Clients can be logged off automatically after a specified time interval
  • You can grant a user a separate Concurrent Connection.
  • Improved import from and export to CSV
