Pixa1.1.10

04 December 2016

Quickly and easily organize your images.

Overview

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, which allows you to export thousands of images with a simple drag-and-drop.
  • Pixa supports a very large set of image formats: PSD, AI, JPG, PNG, TIFF, PDF, BMP, GIF, Animated GIF, ICO, ICNS, EPS.

What's new in Pixa

Version 1.1.10:

Note: Pixa is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

  • Fixed a bug which caused multiple menu items to be displayed under macOS 10.12 Sierra
  • Animated GIF's are now correctly displayed in the detail view
  • Fixed various crashes

I used Pixa to manage my picture material before, but it has not been updated and maintained for a long time and is not recommended. If you're looking for a more powerful and easier product, maybe try the Eagle App. https://en.eagle.cool/ Here are a few features I love : 1. Browser Extension 2. Screenshot 3. Auto Tagging 4. Use folders to classify your assets 5. Auto classify by Smart Folders 6. Tag on images 7. Search image by colors 8. Annotate on image 9. Powerful search engine and much more.

Sadly, I fear this app is on the verge of becoming abandonware. The Nov 2014 update was a minor fix without fixing major issues — such as, for example, the apps inability to keep files in a naming/numbering hierarchy (e.g., if you have images numbered fig 1, fig 2, fig 3, ... fig 10 ... it will sort them fig 1, fig 10, fig 2, fig 3). Also, Live folder sync has become temperamental and slow, especially with large libraries. Its auto-tagging can become a nightmare, and the Finder will pick up those tags; when you try to remove some none-sensical tags and then reopen the app, the Pixa Library starts to choke and the familiar spinning ball will never leave your sight. Plus, its look at this point is a bit dated (and rather ugly on Retina displays (iMac and MBP) — not what you want in an app geared to designers. On the developer's website, the app has been on sale for "20% off" for some time — I'd say, save your money, this is becoming abandonware, there seems to be no effort on behalf of the developer to keep generating interest in this app (just look at the developers Twitter feed: last tweet for PixaApp dates back to Feb 21, 2014 — no teasers in terms of what may be underway etc). I'm regretting having bought it.

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?

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.

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.

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

I love this app! I have thousands of stock photos, PSD's and Pixelmator assets, and this makes storing them and sorting them a breeze! Features like Dropbox integration, sorting by tags, screen capture etc. The only thing on my wish list is the ability to sort the tags alphabetically. Other than that, great work guys, keep it up!

Doesn't support Snow Leopard and using Picasa instead. No need for Pixa.

I'd like to give this a try, but unfortunately I installed it a few weeks ago and didn't really get a chance to check it out. Went to have a look now — the demo is already expired, and there's apparently no way to reset it. This is why many developers use a "# of launches" approach instead of a strict deadline. I basically never even got to try this. You guys have lost yourselves a potential sale with these overly aggressive trial restrictions. Good luck with that.

Which is more disappointing? That this is 10.7 only, and I'm still on 10.6? Or, that this is yet more "free while in beta", DEMOWARE?

A great app. With a few more tweaks it will be the best image browser. I for one would like to see more image viewing arrangement options – like Finder-style list view or some of the others in Lyn.

Hi nice app, however illustrator and pdf docs with no background fill are transparent with the background of the pixa app showing through and no outline of the page area either. It would be great if it could pick up the page area and outline it at least, or like quick view deliver a 'paper view' of what that PDF would look like. as it stands now its of limited use because I cannot make out half my images!

It's a beta so I did have some troubles when updating to 0.6 ... old lib didn't load ... but throwing away .plist file (corrupt I presume) gave me back all my icons. It will be a fantastic app ... in time. And a most needed one. Thanks for all the hard work.
