Which app this will be? One app like Pixa? I need to know how future-proof pixa is. Because i use 25k pictures library and i dont want change the software every 2 Years, and do organise all 25k pictures again and again. Pixa works very fast, but we need more features/updates.
unfortunately, Pixa failed to generate a steady income for a while. We tried to keep the project going but we have fewer and fewer time to invest on this Project and at the moment we can't guarantee Pixa will work on next MacOS release.
I will +1000 my enthusiasm for this app. I searched for months for an icon organizer, tried multiple apps that are more modern/recent, and still settled on Pixa. Even though it hasn't been updated in a long time, it still holds its own and is even superior in many respects. Some of the features that I find absolutely indispensable:
- TABS. No other icon/image organizer that I tested does this. Having different collections open in tabs is awesome.
- COLLECTION-SPECIFIC THUMBNAIL SIZES. Each collection retains its own thumbnail size, which is super useful for different types of icons.
- LIVE FOLDERS that import references rather than copy files to the Library.
- LOOK & FEEL. Maybe it's dated, but the UI is still elegant and stays out of the way. The dark grid background is terrific. Color icons for folders & collections are great -- apps with tiny line icons are difficult to navigate. And I'm admittedly still a fan of skeumortphic-ish design.
Sure, Pixa needs improvements in different areas. If I was a programmer, I would absolutely pick this up. As it is, I'm a very experienced and dedicated user who REALLY wants Pixa to stay alive.
Robert, if you're seriously looking into pursuing Pixa, I will absolutely volunteer my services to assist with testing, use cases, visual design, documentation, creative content -- whatever's needed. If you decide to proceed, post back here and let me know.
And Danilo -- thank you for being open about Pixa's future, uncertain though it may be. Know that you have users who love the app and want it to succeed.
