Editors' Review

Daminion specializes in LAN-based digital image management systems optimized for small teams, but their standalone Windows client is available for free. Daminion catalogs your image assets. It can import, export, and manage image data in a wide range of formats; import and export Tags and Filter data; store data inside files; and integrate with a variety of other systems. Daminion is a complex tool that can handle professional duties, not a quick fix for users who simply want to tag their digital snapshots--and it takes a little effort to learn its ways.

Daminion's interface has a familiar layout, with navigation sidebars on either side of a main view that displays single or multiple images. The program's overall style takes cues from business software as well as image tools. It's easy to switch and resize views right from the interface. There's also a compact view and various options such as a Tray and Film Strip, and easy access to Sync, Search, and Advanced features. The menu bar's Catalog and Item menus clued us in to Daminion's operations, and the Catalog Tags sidebar's quick access to data options such as Camera Model and Camera Lens and categories like People, Place, and Events hinted at its capabilities. Daminion's Startup Wizard offered to import images from files or folders or from PicaJet albums and shared catalogs. While Daminion isn't too difficult to pick up, there's no reason to do it the hard way when clicking Help accesses not only a full Help file but also the Startup Wizard and Tutorials. We could also click Ask a Question for more support.

Daminion saves catalogs as proprietary .DMC files, but can import and export images and data from other sources, too. We saved and named a Catalog and clicked Add Files and also dragged files into the Tray and the Filmstrip. Daminion is fast; scanning nearly 10,000 image files to import in a few seconds. We could group files by Capture Time, create subfolders, rename files, and assign Tag presets while importing files, too. We just scratched the surface of this top-quality freeware, but Daminion certainly interviews well!

Pros

Daminion Digital Assets Manager (DAM) is primarly intended for managing huge digital image libraries on networks. Its database will read, write or edit image EXIF information and on this basis allow sorting, cataloging and searching.Images are displayed as thumbs on a nice canvas where Daminions inbuilt viewer support a plethora of image formats.If looking upon every single file as an asset tagging it appropieately is essential (for a stamp collector ex. Congo, Spain, 1934 ) whereafter organizing the images is a breeze.BUT: the appealing interface will also display thumbs of PDF and video snippets + standard icons for doc, rtf and other documents who can be taged and managed in a similar way.Clicking thumbs of non-images will invoke the compuers defaut viewer for the particular fie format ((VLC, Word, PDFX etc.).And outstanding is a free standalone version of Daminion with no networking but supporting 15000 fies!.Upgrade to 25000 or unlimited numbers is possible for reasonable money.

Cons

Using the standalone version for the last year this mature application has served me well.I cannot report any bugs or instabilities.Though my dreams woud be an option to replace the standard document thumbnails with custom made.

Summary

An application to fall in love with.
