  1. 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.

        • Place Tags and Geotags Relationship

          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…

          • Expanded handling of dates in metadata

            I would like to be able to have access to all the related date fields in the complete metadata so that we can control them directly from Daminion. The fields I am interested in are:

            File Modification Date/Time I need to be able to stop Daminion updating this when i am doing things like tag management or exporting metadata to file

            File Creation Date/Time (this date and time is related to all the fields shown below, and I want the option to have them synchronised by the app).

            Exif:

            • Support for more than two tag and/or recently assigned windows

              I have dual monitors at home (and 4 screens at work) and would like to be able to more than two tag windows. I have lots of extra screen space, and having as many tags as possible displayed at once would save a lot of mouse navigation. Ideally would be able to have, for example, People, Places, Events, Categories, Keywords visible at the same time. Seems like you could do what you have now with Tag Window #2, but have the option to continue spawning additional windows, rather than having a maximum.

              Along the same lines, multiple Recently Added windows…

                • Track file name changes as part of version control

                  In order that one can keep track of the origin of data, which is particularly important, in case one has to backtrack, it would be very helpful to have changes like this as part of version control.

                  2 possible scenarios for which keeping track of file name changes would be beneficial.
                  1) Instead of adding metadata, someone added a fair bit of identifying information to some of the file names; these very long file names now pose a problem, especially when backing up to CD/DVDs.
                  2) when getting copies of microfilm frames, the files are usually numbered sequentially
                  Keeping track…

                  • Copy lens information from MakerNotes to EXIF for Pentax cameras

                    When I import image shot with my Pentax K20D, the lens information is not populated though it exists in the MakerNotes section. The lens infor shows unknown. Hence I am unable to search for images taken with a particular lens. This is a must have feature. I had used LightRoom and Bridge earlier, where this feature was available. Please implement it.

                    • Mark groups of duplicates

                      When displaying duplicates, it would be very helpful to differentiate each group from adjacent groups in some way.

                      The thumbnail & details view would benefit most from this.

                      The simplest way to accomplish that which comes to mind, and a method also used in text and hex editors, is to change the background for each group enough to make the boundaries more easily evident when scanning the frame/list of duplicates

                        It would be useful to know the disk space used by the selected items. Right now the only way I know is to export the list of items to CSV, open the file in Excel and sum there.

                        • Make trimming version control history possible

                          With the current setup for version control any change or even correction to metadata creates a new 'version' which will be kept as part of the directory tree.

                          Keeping too many older versions will gradually increase the backup requirement significantly, because we don't just record differences.

                          Once I have done a backup, I would like to trim the history of say the last 2 - ? versions to keep things manageable both in current size of my data as well as the ability to go back if I really need to.

                            • Introduce an "Undo" (Ctrl-Z) feature when erroneously batch copying tags/keywords

                              It comes from my recent mistake when I have erroneously pasted and overwritten a set of tags/keywords to a batch of selected photos which were already tagged/keyworded. Hence, I had to delete all the keywords from these photos and re-do the process once again. An undo in these circumstances would have saved me a lot of time :)

                              • build option to add synonyms in property panel mode

                                Creating synonyms in catalog mode is fine, but forces me to change my workflow whenever there's a new tag which would better be "synonymized". So I'd appreciate a way to do it while normal picture tagging in property mode. Maybe you could assign a special character like ";" to be interpreted as a delimiter showing Daminion to treat the following tag as synonym to the first one in an input line.

                                Thanks, Robert

                                  • Option to disallow new keywords to be added via properties input fields

                                    I normally add keywords to images by typing them partially in and selecting the actual keyword from the completion popup list, which works well. However, sometimes I prematurely press [Enter] or mistype something, and this then adds an entirely new and pointless keyword. What's worse, the keyword even gets added before I save the changes, meaning that even if I remove it again right away, it still appears in the keywords tree.

                                    This is why I'd appreciate an option to lock down keywords (or tags in general) in such a way that they can only be added explicitly via the…

                                      Edit the list of a field without deleting those.
                                      I have a lot of people in the Copyright field although only about 5 of them I have to use very often. It would be nice if I could clear all others from the list so I can find them easier since typing a letter doesn't just look for the first letter but all the letters in the name...

                                      • Have same tags available in detailed view and in tag window

                                        Have same tags available in detailed view and in tag window. Currently some tags cant be added to show in the tags window (e.g. "rights usage terms") and others like "categories" can't be sorted in detailed files list. I'd like to have all the tags I use in both and everything in the detailed files list sortable.
                                        Hope you understand what I mean and thanks for this program!

                                          Would be very helpful if that would be possible
