There are 2 ways:

 

1. Via XMP metadata. You can sync your tags with metadata manually (Item > Actions > Write Tags to File), or automatically (via the Sync button). After that all your tags including hierarchial categories will be saved in the XMP section of your images and any program that understands XMP can read it.

 

2. Via CSV file. Select files, and go to Export > to CSV

Murat,

 

My files have already had hierarchical tags assigned by PicaJet. I relocated the images after import into Daminion and then Synched them by Writing Tags to File. The relocation was reflected In SupplementalCategories only. hierarchicalSubject and all other relevant sections like "subject" did not reflect new tags. Please advise.

 

Thank you

Did you relocated categories or image files itself?

 

By default Daminion writes tags into XMP section of files only. You can force writing them into EXIF/IPTC section too by turning the "Add compatibility with Windows ..." option in Writing Preferences section of Edit > Preferences.

 

And then check the result via Item > Actions > Show All Metadata

I relocated just categories. Originally, there was a sub-tree of two categories, Auto then Misc under it. I moved Auto under a new category Photograps, which formed a tree

 

Photograps

Auto

Misc

 

Then I synched the files and XMP keyword/hierarchy section looks like this now:

 

Last Keyword IPTC Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

Last Keyword XMP Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

Hierarchical Subject Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

Subject Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

 

which doesn't seem to reflect the new hierarchy.

Ran this procedure. Please compare XMP and IPTC sections after that:

Metadata Date 2015:09:10 11:43:23+03:00

ICC Profile Name sRGB IEC61966-2.1

Lens 7-22mm

Photographic Sensitivity 0

Last Keyword IPTC Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

Last Keyword XMP Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

Hierarchical Subject Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

Subject Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc, Photographs

 

---- IPTC ----

Coded Character Set UTF8

Supplemental Categories Photographs|Auto|Misc

Originally pictures had this hierarchy: "Auto, Auto|Misc, Misc" generated by PicaJet export
