  1. Yes, I mean the posting from Paul above. We already have a thread dealing with the new GUI, where the new GUI comes off badly. No need for a new thread. This new thread looks like image polishing. BTW: Still waiting for a screenshot of the new GUI 🙂 Concrete proposal (honestly, without any expectations): 1) It seems like most of us users do not like the new GUI. It is old fashioned, unclear, all in one color. Please give us back the previous look. 2) Following the above-cited thread, it seems as if no serious users were involved in the beta tests. Why? 3) Please try to fix

  3. Hi, I'll wait until the license expires and then get the last version. I will then test them and verify whether I change or not. At the moment I'm on 6.8.0.2380 Server and I'm staying there.

  5. Murat, just for clarification: I have no doubt, you do a lot of testing before providing an external test version here in the forum. I am also sure, this includes testing the GUI in the sense that it cannot produce crashes and does work as designed. But I am wondering since quite some time, how much you did and do invest in usability studies to verify the design? I could make a long list of inconsistent or inconvenient behaviors of the user interface, but to be honest, I gave up to report those, because I came to the impression, nobody cares about it or doesn't have enough resources to do

  7. Hi, For me as a user it would have been better you would have invested more time in developing the existing software. An example: I am using the server version. I want to use OpenStreetmap. But this is only possible in the web client. But linking and grouping do not work with the web client. So I can't take advantage of all the possibilities that the software can actually do. I think a homogenization would have been more urgent than a "new" GUI. Erwin

  8. This is why I stayed with 6.4.0.2120, after this version waste screen space started. Looks like (through screen copy) this V7 is worst. I'm happy with my old version ;-)

  9. There is no improvement at all. Waste of space, terrible layout etc etc. Obviously, the programmers spent a lot of time for worsening the interface. On the other hand, they ignore several bugs I sent them already 2 years ago which could be fixed very easily within a few minutes by a medium skilled programmer. Shame on you!

  10. Lieber Uwe, lieber Wilfried Habe nun diverse Tests durchgeführt... Funktioniert (bislang) alles Bestens! Konnte auch den Katalog via meiner externen Festplatte auf einen 2. Laptop transferieren (mit Hilfe einer manuellen Sicherung) Nun beginnt das Katalogisieren... 😉 Vielen Dank nochmals für eure tolle Hilfe! Ohne euch hätte ich 100% früher aufgegeben...

  11. Serge, I am not aware of an automatic support (at least not until 6.8 2344), but did you ever try Copy Tag (Alt-Shift-C resp Alt-Shift-F) and Paste Tags (Alt-Shift-V) yet? I found it very convenient to copy all or subset of tags from one to one or more other items and only recently use it increasingly often. cheers Wilfried

  12. I would like to sincerely thank you all for your thoughtful replies. After consideration, I have decided that I will be ignoring the "Names" provided for the Place tags, and just entering a structured list that will enable the family to find images again. For example: If the photos are from a canoe trip down the Ottawa river, which is the boundary between Ontario, and Quebec, I would just enter Canada / Ottawa River. If the photos are from our cottage in Alberta, I would enter Canada / Alberta / Cottage. This is much easier to find than trying to remember at some futur

  13. Hi, I started with the standallone version and soon realized that the server version is just better. Fewer bugs and more efficient. Standallone users should have been switched to server long ago. That would have saved a lot of programming time. But the fact that the conversion does not work properly is simply a gross omission. (Or can one already convert the Standallone catalog with all! features? As far as I know, you lose grouping and linking). Develop one! software and control the possibilities with the licenses. But I am not your free product manager. And I don't want to b

  14. Hi, everyone sees it. The bug has existed for years. I've been around since version 5, when it was already there. There are an infinite number of such small bugs, Daminion doesn't care. The users also, the serious errors are more of interest. Greetings Erwin

  16. Wie kann es sein, dass die EINE VERSION (Standalone) nen Fehler hat, den die ANDERE VERSION (Server) nicht hat ... [Damit ich / der Kunde auf die fehlerfreie Version wechsele ... ???] Wenn das sich bei anderen Software-Herstellern rumspricht und die machen es ebenfalls so ... [Damit ich / der Kunde vielleicht etwas mehr für eine fehlerfreie Version zahle ... ???? ]

  17. Jetzt haben wir bereits den 16. Juni . . . Vom "deutschen Tech-Support" ist bisher NIX zu hören oder zu sehen. Ich hatte noch zwei weitere Meldungen aus dem Programm heraus geschrieben und auch von da KEINE REAKTION ! Ist irgendwie ärgerlich (für mich) und irgendwie armselig (von Euch !). Mehr als zwei Wochen warten auf Support, bzw. Bugfixes ist bei Freeware vielleicht OK, aber wohl nicht bei einer lizensierten Kaufversion

  18. I think our best hope is that our "underpowered NASes" are now sufficiently powerful that with plenty of RAM, the newer higher spec + models are capable of running Windows in a VM. I think that's the way to go. It's a delicious irony though that the NASes that are declared by Daminion to be incapable of running Daminion, may well be able to do not only that, but also to run two extra layers in the stack, the VM and the Windows OS to enable Daminion to run. Realistically, this has never really been about the power of the NASes. Daminion just wants to concentrate on its major revenue str

  19. Agree it is confusing, but also logical in my opinion: You cannot assign a group as tag to an image whereas the root level of a hierarchy can be assigned to images, regardless whether they are also tagged with one or more of the lower levels. I came to the conclusion that the groups don't make much sense to me. Mainly because they are not written into metadata.

  20. Hi Wilfried, You're right, that's the difference. I find it irritating that the elements are not counted in groups. Now I have to decide whether to switch to hierarchical tags. Thanks.

  21. Hi Peter for me the fourth entry "Location" is the name of a certain place. So like this: botanical garden, train station, on the bridge, etc. However, I do not use a "blank" but a "-" I do it like this: Canada / Ontario / - / Algonquin Park regards Erwin

  22. Hi Daria, For me as a user, it would be interesting if there were an official wish list. At the moment the requests are scattered somewhere in the forum. I have many wishes on my list, but I don't know if they have already been made. Kind regards Erwin

  26. I have two entries for State and City with zero files shown for both. There are 2707 files tagged France, and all of then have a State entry, so "State" should not show up at all. Does anyone know if this can be fixed? I also have two entries for "Country". Obviously files that have not been tagged, but why two, one black, and one grey with different numbers of files? I added files from a local catalog, and re-read directories to add files that were not in the local catalog, if I recall correctly. A lot of the entries needed to be corrected due to spelling or tagging errors. Tha

  27. As someone who spent 30 years as a software user interface designer, I agree completely with the above comments. Color choices (at least in Windows) should be linked to the API by default and the user should be able to change them at will inside the application. It's not the developers' concern if the user wants to create what others might consider a garish color scheme. There's also the issue of high contrast for vision issues, but that's another topic... As for the additional space between the metatags, yes, that's a colossal waste of screen real estate! I, for one, will not be upd

  31. After all, what makes me angry is the marketing statement "Brand New User Interface". For what? Some different icons and Tray is now Favorites - who cares? Color changes which - according to Murat - some internal testers did like, but in this forum, I did not see any positive comment on that. Good, they are doing something, but I have the impression, the development team missed a turn at some point.

  33. Thanks Wilfried I think you'll be seeing me back here a bit more because Synology have DSM 7 in beta at the moment. It has a completely new photo management app so I'll have to write a new Daminion help section to describe the new integration. So, for a while at least, Daminion version 7 will integrate with Synology DSM version 7 in a happy coincidence

  34. Jens, I do understand and agree strongly with your critics related to Daminion's progress, but (most likely unintentionally) you hit the wrong person. According to my impressions in the past, Paul always states his true opinion in a constructive way! Where is the bacon, Paul? 😂 And there is one more good news: During the last months (years?), I did miss your posts here, Paul .... welcome back! Hope, you are doing well. 😉

  36. OK I obviously touched a nerve so let me elaborate: 1. No I was not paid 2. This is a member forum is it not? if we come here to criticise and raise bugs are we not also entitled to come here to praise? 3. If you read my simple post again you'll see that I made one point, that, love it or hate it, the arrival of a new UI indicates that the product has a future. I for one was very concerned that development of the desktop client had lagged behind the web client and I was concerned that it might even be withdrawn 4. UI redesign is always contentious. Like I said, it's a lo

  40. I think the logic here is that you can assign multiple values for those tags where the union feature is available. For other tags like place, you can only assign a single value. Juha

  44. Been away from Daminion for a while. Wanted to use it again and renew my Home license. Why do make it so hard to find the Standalone Version? Do you want no Standalone users? And where do I find information on the pricing for the Standalone version. Hmmm.

  46. I posted a question at the end of this topic, but since it didn't get an answer, and it is different enough to warrant a separate post, I am doing so here. 🙂 I am still have issues with some photos with some AI tags not able to be updated. I think that WilfriedB's SQL query from the previous thread is likely the culprit. select * from cloudvision where value = '[ ]' What I'm not sure of is the best way to manually update the rows in that table for Daminion to recognize that they need to be regenerated? Should I set column 'value' to NULL, or delete the problematic rows

  47. It would be great if, when we save searches, we could have the option to save the search only for "this catalog only" or "server-wide." Then we could create searches that apply to the whole server, e.g. "no country" search applied to any catalog on the entire server and another search that only applies only to a specific catalog, e.g. models without age and height in "studio shoots" catalog.

  48. I agree with Dean. On more thing regarding saving searches: There should be the possibility to Save, i.e. overwriting the existing saved search without having to key in the complete name again and a Save As, which offers the current name as default that can be changed. Currently, it always shows an empty input field and you need to key in the complete name, risking a typo and you end up have multiple saved searches with slightly similar names and lose track, which is the most recent one.
