  1. 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
  2. Maybe. Light versus Dark desktop is a Marmite thing**. Personally I prefer light to dark, but some people prefer life on the Dark Side 🤣 **Does "Marmite thing" translate?
  3. No offence was taken either.
  4. 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
  5. 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that development of the desktop client had lagged behind the web client and I was concerned that it might even be withdrawn 4.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
  6. Well, what a breath of fresh air! The old UI looked so tired. Love it or hate it, this tells you that Daminion is committed to the desktop client and that it has a future.
  7. Frankly, I am waiting to see one that's worth the hassle. I've never found one with consistent enough results, or slick ways of correcting incorrect tags, missed faces and"faces" that aren't. Same with subject AI
  8. Sorry Sorry about that. Some plugin updates basically wrecked the site. 😞 I think I have corrected it now.
  9. I saw the facebook post about the new auto-tagging feature. As the full article says, tagging is a relentless chore and one that I'd love to avoid. But I know it's the only way I'm going to retrieve my pictures in the way I want. I have played with many AI-driven tagging applications and none of them has so far looked even vaguely useful. So I thought I'd take up Daminion's offer of a test drive of their take on this tricky subject. So I threw a few random images at the test site to evaluate the results. I'm sorry that the image is so small but there is a limit of 295 px wide,

  11. Hi Frank Yes I have heard of Xpenology and I was interested until I found this on a site: So we decided to directly ask Synology France the question and here are their answers: " You should know that the use of XPEnology is illegal, and violates the intellectual property of Synology while infringing its copyright. And the manufacturer says: " It is not allowed to install DSM on another server and can pose legal problems. DSM consists of two parts: GPL and our proprietary software. Finally, " Synology has not granted third-party rights to install our own software on non-Synology se
  12. So here's the spec of the latest "under powered" NAS from Synology - which I might upgrade to next year I'm not going to repeat the plea for a Synology Package - that's clearly never going to happen. No, the point is, this new box is certified to run a Windows 2016 Server VM. With a quad core 2.1GHz processor and up to 32GB RAM it will easily perform that task as well as all the other apps I run, giving me a one-box solution. The downside is I'm going to have to learn another OS It's not cheap, but then neither is my current DS916+ 8GB / DX513 expansion combo. What do
  13. Yes, well, as I said, tagging in Windows is not recommended. So .....
  14. Did you Save the image after you entered the Daminion Comment? On my system a test comment gets written to the EXIF Field "User Comment." That's what I meant about there being no standard! :(
