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 and User-friendly Working Environment
Essentially, Pixave for iPad provides a streamlined environment to manage and view graphic resources. With the user-definable Collections graphic resources can be managed using folders to sort according to the needs of the user and, like the Finder in Macs, provides hierarchical management capabilities. In addition, countless graphic resources can be organized using the highly intelligent Smart Collections, which can be instantly accessed with just a touch without having to search for them, and also graphic resources can be easily searched based on tags.
Easy Import Media by Drag and Drop
By using iOS 11's awesome Drag and Drop feature media can be imported with a minimum of effort. What more is there to say? Plus, Pixave for iPad also offers Share Extension, which allows the user to easily transfer media from various types of programs into Pixave for iPad.
Supports Popular formats!
Pixave for iPad supports common image formats such as GIF, JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, TIFF, ICNS, PSD, PDF, BMP, ICO, Camera RAW, EXR, MPO, HEIC, HEIF, MOV, M4V, MP4 as well as document formats from iOS Graphic applications such as Pages, Numbers, Keynote,
Mindnode, Pixelmator, Sketch, Audodesk Graphic, and Procreate.
Machine Learning Tagging
Pixave for iPad offers astonishing tagging abilities. The contents of an image are detected to automatically create or add tags, allowing easy access for the user. To provide the most convenient environment for tagging Pixave for iPad uses 'Machine learning'. Machine learning is a technology that allow computers to learn and then use the learned knowledge to perform specific tasks, to behave more like a person than a computer. Integrated via the new, blazing fast Core ML framework, machine learning lets Pixave for iPad detect and understand various contents within images.
Enhanced Web & Map Capture
One of Pixave for iPad's wonderful features is its Web & Map Capture ability. By using this feature you can save a desired webpage as an image - an absolute must for web designers. And on top of that, the Map Capture ability is nothing lesser - with it a desired location can be easily searched for and instantly saved as an image. And yet another amazing thing is images saved with Map Capture store the location information within it, so that when shared with others the original location information can also be viewed right away. Nice! Wouldn't you say?
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, Core Image Filters to edit images (JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, TIFF only), and animated GIFs. Files such as Pages, Numbers, and Keynote can be easily viewed by using QuickLook. Plus, the built-in PDF, Movie Viewer lets you easily view PDFs and Movies, as well letting you save a part of a movie as Animated GIFs.
Pixave supports multiple libraries - you can easily create and manage libraries on your iPad or iCloud, and libraries made using iCloud can be shared with Pixave for Mac for immediate use.
Due to its iCloud compatibility, you can sync your Pixave for iPad libraries, with its multiple libraries structure, with iCloud. Users using both Pixave for Mac and Pixave for iPad will find this an extremely useful feature. Pixave for iPad and iCloud enjoy an intimate relationship.

Ratings and Reviews
Great start, looking forward to updates
Pixave is a great image organizer on the Mac and I was excited to have it on my iPad as a way to get images for projects out of my photos app. The apps does that but is still buggy. It randomly imports less items then selected from the photos app and also quits after several imports. No drags and drop from Photos app, although developer says it is coming. Developer is very responsive and I look forward to seeing the app improve.
Not ready yet
First off, I adore the Mac app - which is why I bought the iPad version. That said, this has been nothing but a let down and a bunch of time lost. If I could ask for a refund, I would. There are several things that are wrong with basic operations. It never remembers that I have already seen the onboarding screens, so it always shows those to me, and requires a tap to close... no big deal yet, but then it never remembers what my last library was, so it always forces me to choose a library. The screen that lets you choose a library is always empty until you pull down to refresh, then it may show previous libraries. I have had to create new libraries 4 times now because it seems to have a problem accessing the ones in iCloud. On that note, if I add a photo on my iPad, and i have the same library opened on my Mac, they don’t update each other - which was kinda the point of iCloud. I can not find the libraries on iCloud that I create on my iPad, not sure where there are going or stored. Today I updated and guess what - all my libraries are gone now. Don’t know how to open them or find them. So ok... that’s it - I’m gonna tap out and try another solution. Good luck getting this fixed - and good luck to those who are staying on this ride.
The concept is great and I have been using the Mac app. It’s a great tool for a graphic designer but unfortunately I’ve had too many issues with the app crashing and long/cumbersome import from iOS issues, and have exported my collections to plain old folders in iCloud Drive, which I have found to be the quickest and most reliable method accessible from any device. If this app becomes more reliable and includes an iPhone version I would take back in a heartbeat because I really want this app to work. For example I love the ability to search images by color and that all images are stored in a database file to not clutter up Finder/Files. Hope this app takes off.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
