Having a bunch of folders on a drive doesn't really cut it when you start wanting to be able to sort by various dimensions (e.g. source, license, resolution, subject). Does anyone have any good solutions that don't on subscription services? Bonus if it works for other types of resource too.
All you need is Eagle
The best way to collect, organize & syncing your inspirations.
Eagle helps you manage pictures, screenshots, user interfaces and designs that make your lightbulb shine. If you are a designer, you will definitely love this!
Tried out Pixave and Eagle. Liked Eagle much more. Easier to use and felt intuitive, while Pixave made me think and read too much before every action.
I wish Eagle had a basic image editor (resize, crop, add arrow or basic shapes like Skitch to point at stuff).
The coolest feature of Eagle is an option to import Sketch elements, for future reuse - it copies all the layers and everything. really handy
I use Pixave for macOS.
Me too :D
Switched to Pixave after Ember became abandonware.
How does Pixave work with stuff organized on external drives?
At the risk of sounding incredibly lame and old-school:
Saved in folder structure: brand/sub-brand > product group > product > license type
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.
You're stoned Pixave.
If these are photographs, and they're properly tagged at the source, Adobe Bridge should be able to read in most of the metadata you need. From there you can look on how to create a workflow that suits your needs.
Especially if you work in a team.. how do you manage/catalog/share resources?
