      Absolutely Dropmark.

      There is also Dragdis, though I use Firefox and they dropped Firefox support with their extension.

      Raindrop.io is nice though feels a little immature, Hypershoot is another one which is quite nice. Speaking of nice there is Niice.

      Sorry for the lack of links on mobile.

    Like all of you, I could not find anything. I tried Pinterest but most of the time I wanted to add screenshots that I had locally and did not care about linking back to the source. I tried Dropbox, and Evernote but there was not an easy way to see them all visually. So I started using Google Photos. I created 1 album for Designs. I then added text blocks that separated the album into graphics, desktop, and mobile. Most of the time I use SnagIt or awesome screenshot if I want to get a whole page for a website. With Snagit I can capture gifs or mp4s and then save them to google photos. Best of all I can upload unlimited photos for free. I can also sync them to my iPhone, or iPad without taking space on there either. I am using no Google Photos for what it was intended for, but it works really well for me. I also make sure I name my screen shots with keywords like Modal, Navigation, etc. in the file name to easily find what I am looking for. If Google added tagging to photos then this would be the ultimate tool.

    I hear Dragdis (https://dragdis.com) is a popular visual bookmarking tool built for this kind of purpose.

    I used to use Inboard which was good (and it had a folder that synced with my Dribbble likes which was nice), but lately I've just been dropping things into Evernote.

    Check out Bookmark OS. Way better than anything I've ever used. It's like a GUI but custom for bookmarks. https://bookmarkos.com

    This might be hard to believe but I still use the old Littlesnapper app (now Ember) and have the library stored in Dropbox so I can sync it between computers.

    I've tried other services and nothing is quite right and it's not something I'm willing to pay for ongoing indefinitely.

    I think the next best thing would definitely be Google Photos, except that I don't want to mix up my personal photos with design ideas – although I could create another account for it.

    If you haven't tried it, download the oldschool version of Littlesnapper and check it out. So simple, so easy to use and it has a web browser with a tool to take screenshots of full pages. It's crazy no one has built anything for this yet, but I guess it's because it's not really worth paying for.

    Trello is not explicitly build for visual research. But I can highly recommend it for structuring ideas.

    We want our creative team's tool for sharing design ideas to be just as slick as the work we display.... so our team uses a delightful little application called Wake .. Might not be the best for individuals but have a look so you know it's out there

    The one thing that all these services/apps lack (aside from OS X Photos app) is the ability to capture/display video. I am more and more interested in various motion aspects of design and things I discover and being able to archive that is more important to me now than just screenshots.

    I bought Stache for iOS (but they also have a macOS app). I think I bought it because it was on offer. Anyway, it's pretty nice and has good tagging and categorisation functionality. Not sure it's been updated in a while.

      The app is great however they didn't update it for MacOS and recently dropped support 'indefinitely' with a plan to update it 'sometime'. I lost all my bookmarks in this move.

      Small firm, side-project, can't recommend.

    I liked Raindrop for UI but sadly it is WAY TOO BUGGY. it bookmarks the WRONG tab https://www.evernote.com/l/AIGQYSau6fZNqLn9YIAd3bH7hyUPXGIDeuQB/image.png -WTF..

    and 50% of the time shows me this : https://www.evernote.com/l/AIGz298aDkJP4afzGOZq0bGZxUcIHg3UR2oB/image.png

    dropmark so far is winning overall.

    I've used Ember and now transitioning to Pixave. That is for images and videos, as for writing down ideas, I use Notes.

    Never found a web service that suits me.

    Pinterest to a huge amount for me. I do occasionally want to save screenshots and other bits of local work, but not enough to worry about it. For that, there's project process folders, sketchbook, and Dropbox. Although I have to say I wish Dropbox had better image viewing/thumbnails.

    Pinterest - but I'm shying away from bookmarking design ideas these days. I was finding I'd refer to them too much, rather than just taking them in and letting them influence my work naturally. Seems to have been a good move for me personally.

    Please don’t laugh at me: It's a folder weighing gigabytes. It’s full of images and short videos, each containing several spotlight tags and the source URL.

    Oh, and Pinterest to a small extent.

    I have no need to save any sort of visual clippings, so I just save bookmarks in Pinboard. Super simple.
