I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Save commonly-used searches/tags to a toolbar button for one-click access.

    Instead of browsing or filtering for commonly accessed tags in the tag tree, you should be able to add custom shortcut buttons to the toolbar (in the blank space between the "Advanced" and "Export" buttons) to allow one-click access to those tags.

          • Add a thumbnail preview on each row in 'Details' layout

            I'd like to see the option to turn on/off a small thumbnail for each row item on the 'details' layout. The thumbnail would appear at the beginning of the row itself.

              • Tag assignment to the selected part of a photo

                Need a function to assign tag / name of the person not to the whole picture, but to the selected photo area.
                Useful if a photo contains a lot of people or some persons are unknown or when I need to mark some specific artificial or natural object (building, bridge, mountain etc.)

                • allow option to "Replace image" with a better version, retaining catalog data

                  we have some lower quality versions of images in our catalog, it would be nice to be able to quickly swap one out for another version-- migrating the category/keyword tags and other metadata to the replacement image.
                  in this case, being able to locally browse for one, and then have a simple confirmation window (yes I want to replace the image, this will delete the old version, and all catalog and metadata will be inserted into the new image, etc, I confirm OK yes)

                  • with an image selected, and you resize the daminion window...

                    With an image selected, and you resize the daminion window (move to a 2nd monitor and go fullscreen for example), the selected image would remain visible in the window, or the browser would shift until its vertically centered in the window.

                      • Support more 3D media formats

                        We need the cataloging power for all our files: rfa, 3dm, rvt, dxf, obj, max, etc. most provide thumbnails to windows explorer & some even have OOTB tag data built in: we just need the power to organise them. AEC & Archviz needs something like this!!!

                          • Develop Daminion into a Storybank tool

                            It is way to easy to overwrite the description tag in Daminion. A good start would be to have the option of making the description tag one that cannot be changed in bulk. Daminion could have much wider use if it incorporated some of the story bank features of MerlinOne.

                            • Merge 2 catalogs into 1 or transfer pictures between catalogues

                              I created 2 separate catalogues for me and my wife. After all, it turns out that it would be better to have all in one. As we invested already a lot of time in tagging, it would be great if pictures could be transferred from one to another catalogue or merge them together.

                              • make option to have 'add files' import only new photos

                                When I add images from an SD card I sometimes prefer not to remove the photos from the card. However, when I import the next time, I end up with duplicate photos.
                                Add functionality to Daminion to check the existence of photos on import.

                                • Automatically assign new imported keyword tags to already existing synonyms.

                                  Especially when importing tagged images from different sources you most likely end up with unwanted new keywords but with the same meaning in your Daminion Tag tree. Your existing synonyms will be ignored.
                                  How about if Daminion would recognize already existing synonyms during the import and if a certain to be imported keyword already exists as a synonym, then automatically assign this synonym instead of adding the new keyword in the tag tree?

                                  • Extra notes associated with a file

                                    Each catalogued file would be associated with plain-text file containing any notes the user wishes to save, e.g. detailed workflow procedure. Now there's no place in Daminion to insert longish notes. Such text file would be launched in a separate window by pressing a button in the Properties pane; the text file name would follow the catalogued file name: for example IMG01234.jpg would be associated with IMG01234.txt file placed in the same folder.

                                      • customized support of "unknown fromats"

                                        - User defined customizing to assign user defined icons to the "not native supported formats". E.g., I can assign the "ZIP-Icon" and it will be shown in the Thumbnail View and not the "?"-placeholder
                                        - Customizing to support the "unknown formats" in the tags of the Media Format. Now all different "unknown formats" are collected under the tag "unknown" and can't be selected by "ZIP", "TXT" etc.
                                        - XMP sidecar files for all "unknown formats". This keeps all information independent from the database.
