  1. 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.

                      • hotkeys customizable

                        since in many cases it's faster to use hotkeys instead of the mouse it would be great to have more hotkeys available - or even better: customizable hotkeys...

                            • To fix known bugs before implement new features.

                              Daminion has a number of bugs with different importance. Some of them are known a year. But Daminion Software prefers to implement new features. And official releases published at website (not test builds on forum) are have them all - bugs and features.

                              This software is still very good and "pros" are more significant then "cons", but they will be accumulates. If Daminion will have much capabilities, but most of them will be with some annoying bugs users will start to find better software.

                                comparing a number of pictures directly in a side by side view with synchroneous zoom an pan would be great.
                                Some other viewers do have this feature (XNview, faststone image viewer, ThumbsPlus, ...)
                                This is great for comparing several similar pictures (e.g. check group portraits for closed eyes).

                                  Hey Community,
                                  I would like to have the Option to store Exporting profiles on the Server and on the local machine!

                                  I could generate exporting profiles and assign them to all users, e.g. for all our iPhone devices so I can perfectly create them and all the others can use them.

                                    • "Move to" for Tags

                                      I just created my first catalog from a folder which was managed by Picasa in the first place. Picasa is not able to create hierarchical tags, so i am now sitting in front of a very long list of tags.
                                      So in worst case, i need to move the word "ape" into the tag "zoo" and scroll down all the way.
                                      I found a workaround but a "move to" sub-menu would be great.
