Pixa is iPhoto for designers and writers. It’s an image and inspiration organiser with a slick interface and some smart tools for collecting all the other kinds of images you care about.

Pixa’s interface is immediately familiar, with your list of projects and folders in the left sidebar and all your stuff front and centre. Pixa also supports and automatically updates Live Folders – folders of images that you want to work with in Pixa, but that are located on disk elsewhere on your Mac outside of Pixa’s library.

Pixa’s real magic comes from its excellent collection, organisation and export tools. You can easily take screenshots of just about anything, and Pixa can automatically tag images based on criteria like type (icons or vector), size and even predominant colour. Then you can create one-click export templates to fit the exact dimensions and file types that you workflow needs.

In short, Pixa fills that space between iPhoto and Photoshop with tools that let you get work done with images.
