Creating Tag Values in the Tags Panel
In Daminion Web Client, unlike Daminion desktop client, you cannot assign tags by dragging the images to the respective tag value in the tags panel. Instead, you do the following:
Click the heading of the respective tag to expand it. Then click the little pencil icon to switch from filtering mode to creating new tags. Enter the tag value in the entry box and click Create.
Please note that the tag values created in the Tags Panel are automatically suggested for use when tagging in the Properties panel or Tag editor.
In our example, we use a backslash delimiter to create a hierarchy where “Brown” is the parent level and “Sarah” a sub-level.
To create more tag values inside “Brown”, click the folder icon and enter more tags.
To create multiple tag values at once, separate them with commas.
To edit tag values, switch to create-tag mode and simply click the respective tag value. To remove a tag value, click the trash bin icon.
Tagging in the Properties Panel
In the Properties panel, click the Description Tab to expand it and start assigning tags.
If a tag value already exists in the database, Daminion will auto-suggest it as soon as you type the first letters.
Note: In the Properties panel all existing tags are displayed and cannot be customized to show fewer tags. Additionally, the tags cannot be assigned to more than one image at the same time. All this can, however, be done in the Tag Editor.
The Tag Editor allows you to assign tags to multiple images at once and customize the list of displayed tags.
To open the Tag Editor, select one or more images in the Browser window, click Actions on the toolbar and select Edit tags.
Alternatively, click the “+” sign on any of the selected images.
The following window appears:
