hi,

i see Pixa saves its database in macOS user > Pixa.pxlibrary package.
questions:
1. so Pixa does not duplicate and waste drive space, but track aliases of those files on varied internal/external drives?
2. i dropped just 1 folder of photos on app. 3750 photos in folder became 4165 in your Pixa folder (.pxlibraryitem), why the difference in #?

thanks,
rolf

    Hi,

    1. Images moved in Pixa are copied inside the Library, but you can use live folders to link the files.

    2. Pixa create image thumbnails to render image grids in a more efficient way.

    Cheers.
