Automatically tagging items based on other tags


Recommended Posts



Let's say my database has images tagged according to people, and I then want to add a tag saying where these people are from. I have an excel sheet listing where each person is from.

Instead of going by each person tag individually and adding the relevant country tag, is there any way to import a CSV file that would link all works tagged under "Bob" to the country tag "UK"?

Hello DM987,

at first: yes it's possible BUT manually or by an Excel function/macro.

E.g., I've exported 10 items to a CSV file, entered the Place tag in the CSV file and imported this CSV file.

What you have to do: you have to merge both Excel sheets: the CSV and yours to get a final CSV one that has to be imported.

Regards, Uwe

... Instead of going by each person tag individually ....

You didn't say how many persons you have. If you have many pictures per person, but a relative small number of people, doing it manually in Daminion is feasible:

  1. Search all images for one person
  2. Select All (Ctrl+A)
  3. Enter desired the value into Keywords or other tags in the properties window
  4. Save the changes (Ctrl+S)
  5. Repeat for the next person
