Stay Inspired

There is a whole world that we get from images. A single picture can fill us with inspiration which, in turn, brings us joy. Such impressions grow to create wonder and amazement for the world. That growth and creation is made possible by you. And Pixave is here to store and organize those inspired moments - to enable you to bring them to mind whenever, wherever you are.


A Convenient workspace

The basic purpose of Pixave is to provide the optimum environment to manage your images. But to judge its usefulness and convenience solely on its environment would be far from doing it justice. With the user-definable ‘Collection’ feature you manage your images, using folders to categorize to suit your needs. In addition, you can organize numerous images using the highly intelligent ‘Smart Collection’ feature and search for them instantly.


And that’s not all – Pixave remembers all your settings, including your selected ‘Collection’, the images and their sorting arrangement, the screen/window status, to restore them exactly as they were when you come back to work on your project. Such useful features lets you work in continuity with a streamlined workflow, whilst providing you with the workspace tailored to how you want it. Pixave’s innovative and useful workspace lays the groundwork for you to draw inspiration, unhindered, from your images - because your inspirations are precious and beautiful.

Colors and Tags

There are many ways to search for images. However, Pixave presents an innovative, never-before-seen search function: welcome to the age of finding images according to color. The impressions left by the hues of an image play an important part in how one remembers it. Forget about groping to remember an image, just follow the color you are feeling and find yourself with the image that you wanted!


The world of accessing images through colors is thus opened up by Pixave. Furthermore, the Tag feature still functions exactly as you would expect. During import, Pixave receives all the OS X Tag information stored within the image, letting you easily add or delete Tags, as well as letting you conveniently organize them wherever the image is seen. Also, with a single click you can easily view any related images.

The Tiny Giant – Pixave Mini

Gathering images should be no labor. One should be able to collect any image, whether it is a file or from the web, easily and quickly. As the name suggests, Pixave Mini is a mini version of Pixave. It stays visible on the screen at all times and only requires you to drag a desired image to it, where it will collect the image without disturbing your workspace in the slightest. Such small feature will save you oodles of time, maximizing your efficiency. Thus, without too much exaggeration, Pixave mini can aptly be called the ‘tiny giant’.


Capture anything!

Capturing an area of the screen, a window, or the full screen could not be made easier. With the fully customizable hot-keys you can assign any key to capture whatever image, whenever you want - even from a stylish web page.

Exciting Export

When working with images, one often finds that they need to be converted in order to send to somebody else. If it’s not only the image format that needs converting but other various options as well, then , processing many images will requires a great deal of time and effort, making the work tedious.


But now, thanks to Pixave’s advanced exporting capabilities, such tedium can be put to rest: the image format, size, name, and other various options can all be batch processed. In addition, images can be exported even into ePub format. As will be experienced through the resulting files and ePub documents, Pixave’s export feature is no basic converter.

All-around viewer

Pixave’s image displaying feature is not limited to only viewing images. Not only can you edit the metadata but you can also use the powerful, integrated OS X Yosemite’s Action Extension to edit images, animate GIFs and create multiple framed TIFFs, as well as view in detail specialized image files such as the ICNS.


Plus, the built in PDF reader lets you easily view PDFs and save any page as a separate image. All these features are intuitively integrated into the interface, and are likely to make you say to yourself: “Wow, that’s amazing!”

App Reviews & Twitter

Wonderful Application! ★★★★★

Pixave has motivated me to get more organized! I love how you can organize images and files by type (screen, phone tablet, web, etc, web, icon, interface, etc), using keywords and colors to designate and define your content. The export to epub option is a nice bonus.

Fantastic! ★★★★★

I had been looking for an alternative to iPhoto/Photos for organizing my graphic files. This is just the ticket. Now I can leave Photos for just photos Ive taken, and Pixave can do the rest. Very easy to set up, and the author is very responsive. At just $12, it is a steal!

Great app with super support ★★★★★

This app is great for quickly tagging and finding pictures (even with the same sorts of colors) and I wrote to the developer of the app with a few suggestions and remarks and got a reply within a few hours! So this is what I call customer service! And this for an app that is not expensive at all.

best app for designers ★★★★★

best app for any designer, i use it to organize screenshots, mocks , photoshop files and my UI designes in sketch. using tags, folders and smart collection. and the developer is friendly and willing to make it the best in what it do.

Quality App ★★★★★

This app is well thought out and is a perfect solution for those who want to store things other than family photos. We all have those folders of funny GIFs and wallpapers on our machines; now you can categorize and sort through them with the ease of Photos or iPhoto. There’s only one item that would be a great addition, an Open in Finder feature where you could reveal the source photo in the Finder. Other than that it’s pretty polished for a 1.0 product. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t have some bugs or issues, but overall it’s an excellent 1.0.
