    • Full text search of the content of compatible files

      Provide an option to include a full text search index for the content inside OCR'd PDFs, Office documents (they're just a ZIP file with XML files inside), DWG files that contain TEXT and MTEXT elements and their attributes, and plain text files. A checkbox with maybe a warning about how much space and resources this might consume would be appropriate here...

      • custom tags - add drop down list as a format

        When adding a custom tag, make available the option for a drop down list. This allows for preset values that users must select from.
        This benefits by not having each users enter an incorrect value and limits them to the defined list.

          • Hierarchical Tag Preset selection??

            Hierarchical Tag Preset selection??

            When 'Importing' files (Add) into Daminion, I am able to "Assign Tag Preset" from a drop-down menu.
            This is OK, but could be improved...
            I currently have "52" presets to choose from !!
            Is it possible to turm this into a hierarchical drop-down list, with sub-categories ??
            This would make my section process a wee bit easier :-)

            • User role between Viewer and Editor

              Maybe a PowerViewer - same as view with ability to add/edit tags. Which would be same as Editor WITHOUT the ability to add files.

              • Random sort order

                I feel it would be a nice addition to sorting options if user could choose random order of selected images. Alternatively it could be done as altering navigation keys - Page Up and Page Down go to next image in previously set order while Space and Backspace go to next random image in current selection and previous random image.

                • Exclude folders from duplicate check

                  Hello,
                  there are some folders with photos used for a photobook. Some of these photobook photos are copies from the "original" photo in another folder. I would like to exclude these "photobook folders" from the duplicate check.
                  Regards, Uwe

                  • Use variables extracted from EXIF/ITPC data

                    Like in Photostudio, you could allow to generate automatcially Titles, Descriptions.
                    Example of title generation : "Photo" + #filename + ".' + #GPSlocation + "Date:" + #datetaken
                    or copy data from one field to another, for instance between Author and Copyright.

                    • Full support of IPTC fields.

                      I have seen elsewhere in this forum, that additional IPTC fields would be heavy for Daminion.
                      I would suggest to allow all IPTC fields management in TWO steps: light (as now) and heavy (complete).

                      • Add new file formats permanently to import filters section

                        Curently file formats that are not " built-in" in Daminion have to be added to the " Also import files with the following extension" line. When there are more than 10 file formats in that line for file formats that you import regularly it becomes a bit inconvenient to keep track of which ones are already in there when you need to add a new file format.

                        Therefore it would be nice if in the "permanent" import filters area there would be a possiblity to add new file formats to be imported, either by adding them to the existing file…

                        • Manage JPG and RAW tags of the same image in one go

                          Like in View NX (Nikon tool), if the 2 types of files have the same name, you should be able to enter data in one go for the 2 files, so that tags are identical with oa single entry and single Tag write action

                            • Dates are not properly managed.

                              Show the tag "Date taken" and "Time taken"
                              This tag should never be updated, as generated at the time of the picture shot.
                              This original date is important in order to document correctly the files.
                              "Date created" can be different and refers to file improvement, resizing or other manipulation, possibly by Daminion.

                                  It is massively useful to have a well-indexed searchable database of digital assets -- so useful that it should be possible for any Application to make use of it, as it does with the O/S file system. Daminion doesn't go far enough in making collections of Digital Assets available for use.

                                  With "advanced search" along with Saved Searches, you can create a set of media, which is a 'gallery' of sorts, but doesn't go far enough. A Gallery is a set of media files, which should be available for use outside of the DAM system.

                                  • Automation and Scripting

                                    Daminion needs the ability to automate various tasks. Once I import my stuff and categorize it completely, I want to make it easier to add to it. With each new set ot media added, there should be a series of categories assigned automatically, using the same heuristics that were used to categorize the media in the first place.

                                    A heuristic is a "rule of thumb" - a simple rule that says how to handle media import, categorization, syncing, exporting, and so on. The Rules define my workflow.

                                    An example: parsing a file in a folder. If each folder comes with…

                                    • Editing color label

                                      My language is French, sorry for my poor English...
                                      I'm a new user of Daminion and I'm very enthusiast. I also use Capture One 9 for editing RAW files. Like dobs, I think it is a pity that the color labels are not compatible between the two softwares.
                                      For example, Photo Mechanic (software used by a friend) allows the editing of the color of each label allowing complete compatibility.
                                      In attachment, you'll find three screenshots. One from Capture One, the others from Photo Mechanic (original and after personalizing).

                                      Possible to plan this little extra tool?
                                      Thanks in advance and congratulations…

                                      • Allow user-editable XMP-to-daminion tag mapping

                                        Daminion only supports a subset of commonly used XMP schemas, so any XMP tags written by other software that are not already mapped to Daminion's tags are "invisible". It would be great if we could set up mapping of any XMP field to custom Daminion tags.

                                          I believe Place tags and geotags are complementary and that it's not an either or choice.

                                          If that's the case would it make sense if:

                                          As well as assigning GPS coordinates to the image file, Daminion also recorded the geotag against the lowest level entry in the Place
                                          So, say that you have selected all images with a Place tag of 'UK\Hertfordshire\Berkhamsted\George Street' and you then search for a geotag and link it to the images, Daminion would store that link against the 'George Street' Place item.
                                          Would it also be possible for Daminion to use the Place data 'UK\Hertfordshire\Berkhamsted\George…
