i see Pixa saves its database in macOS user > Pixa.pxlibrary package.
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 #?

    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.
