Assets you can't find are JUST AS USELESS as assets that are completely lost!
Daminion’s easy-to-use, but nonetheless powerful, search capabilities include: Quick Search, Filter Content By Tags in combination with AND/OR operators, Advanced Search and Saved Searches.
Daminion supports the vast majority of media formats including: raster (JPEG, PSD, PNG, etc...), vector (AI, EPS, InDesign, SVG), camera RAW images, video, audio, PDF, Microsoft Office documents. Besides media formats, Daminion can also read/write tags from/to XMP, IPTC, EXIF metadata in a wide range of media formats including video and camera RAW formats.
All file information, including copyright information, is stored as metadata. Whenever you copy, email, or publish your asset all the file information travels along with the file. Ownership of an asset and the rights to use it are also included in the metadata.
From the outset, Daminion has been developed for small teams with tight budgets. The pricing scheme is simple and affordable. You pay once, with none of the endless monthly fees demanded by web-hosted solutions. Check out our pricing.
Windows or Active Directory security (User Mapping)
Windows or Active Directory security (Group Mapping)
Large teams with multiple users can take advantage of the existing Windows or Active Directory based authentication, which allows you to map existing network users or groups with Daminion so that they can use their Windows/Active Directory logon credentials when logging in to the database.
Avoid work being redone because you’ve lost your original versions! Version control means that you will never again lose a good idea because someone has overwritten your file edits. You can always easily find out who’s made what changes to your content - and why.
Metadata is the best way to exchange information between different systems. With XMP, you won’t have to depend on various API versions of various other systems. Daminion will read/write metadata in many formats including image, camera RAW, vector, video, audio and PDF files.
Export your media files, with selected conversion rules, with a single click. Your files will be optimized for uploading to Flickr or Facebook (as JPEG 1000 px). Or you can insert your optimized images into PowerPoint (as PNG 800 px - 72 dpi). Convert your files on demand without multiple file duplicates of different image sizes and formats!

"The more I use Daminion the more I appreciate its functionality. There seem to be new, neat features "popping up" the more I understand how to use the program. This is going to be a fantastic management tool for digital image assets. I just wanted to let the development team know that the feature set is terrific. Hope you don't wind up selling this to Adobe."
