Pixa is an image-organizing application. The new app functions well, is easy to use, and helps people organize their images quickly and easily on their computers.

For those who prefer not to use the Pixa library, the application can still find images when the user searches for them. So, either way, Pixa makes it much easier for users to keep track of their image files.

Pixa will auto-tag useful information like colors and size and grab web address, extensions and metadata for the images that you import.

A useful quick export tool is included, with allows you to export thousands of images with a simple more...

My full review of Pixa at The Graphic Mac: http://bit.ly/11RVAhb

In short, it's awesome! Well worth the $30 if you need image management.

Do not trust this app! I had a complex hierarchy of hundreds of files and when I included them as a live folder, Pixa completely rearranged them, dumping bunches into an arbitrary folder on the physical disk drive. I've spent hours trying to put things back where they belong.

I replaced Sparkbox by Pica and I'm happy with it. Well thought little tool! Ideal to keep track of my icons, wallpapers, etc. The snapshot plugin also works very well!

I kinda hate the folder name/item count bar floating over the viewing pane. It looks glitchy and it's pointless. Redundant. Why is it there, wasting space and looking ugly and annoying?

Oh and the image preview [double click] keeps going back to 'fit to screen' zoom size. I want it to remember the last used zoom setting.

Well, downloaded it and tried and like others it simply won't run without purchasing a license. Buried on their website is a complicated process to download another app, run it, get a string of hex codes to copy and paste "Here" wherever "here" is and they'll reply. This is utterly MORONIC.

Another thing... don't watch the demo on their site unless you want to hear loud and severely annoying canned music.

Was looking for something like this by you just lost a potential sale and not because I can't run it but because your approach is so idiotic I can only imagine the software is the same.

Agreed. I get the same message and did what they say to do with the code and still won't run. Makes you wonder if they really want to sell software.

I did hear back from the dev. And he did fix the issue. Still an annoying way to demo software.

Just want to say few good words about support team and product.
I really like the atmosphere and environment on the user forum, the way how Pixa team deals with their customers. Very good, friendly attitude.
And the product is awesome as well.
But there is always room to expand and improve :)

While not a full review, the first day working with this program has been wonderful. But, even better than that has been the experience of working with the developers. Questions were answered quickly and provided context, which is missing in a lot of developer communications these days. The effort to get a demo up and running on a finicky machine really showed the effort they will go to provide the best experience. Very pleased with Pixa so far and look forward to putting it through a workload. So far, we have about 30k assets and it seems very responsive.

We might finally have a good contender for now absent Extensis Portfolio!

Some of the paradigms are a little odd (projects, folders, smart folders?), and the tabs haven't been particularly useful yet, but overall it's a great app for organising stock photography or similar collections. After testing a number of other options last year, Pixa was my choice for managing texture libraries both at work and at home (though less than 2000 images, so not particularly impressive!).

Two features I hope are added:

• Browser extension or OSX service that can add items to specific groups with minimal input (I usually have to manually add the source URL and other info, which could easily be automated for speedier data collection).

• Support for more media (video, audio, or really any media types other than plain images).

That said, there's a careful balance needed in terms of responsiveness and features, and Pixa is currently at the just-fast-enough-it's-ok point. Any slower and it'll be frustrating to use.

Downloaded the "demo" and it demands a license key or exits. Interesting demo.

Try again. The demo worked for me (but it was so crashy crashy that I gave up and uninstalled it).

If the demo demands a license key it means that your trial period is expired (you've opened it at least one time some time ago).

You can try to ask for a trial reset in the support form: http://help.shinyfrog.net/

I love this app. The browser extensions are great and the developers update it on a regular basis. It's also competitively priced.

What size of gallery can this app handle? I have to manage hundreds of thousands of images. Can it handle it?

Some users have reported to handle libraries with 1 million of files.
The best thing to do is to try the trial version and see if it fulfils your needs.

I finally got around to installing it and it tells me it is expired. I dot not recall even installing the app before. Wish there were a way to reset the trial period once.

Try asking for the trial period extension at http://help.shinyfrog.net/discussions/pixa/ - we will be happy to help :)

Have an awesome day!
