I have been using Pixa as my main image browser to find local images amongst my many images. I really just need to be able to search for them by name or folder name, or visually select them by scrolling through where I think the images I want, are located, and then drag into a graphics app. Pixa has a live folder feature that monitors folders for new images and loads into Pixa, which is perfect when it works.
However, I have found Pixa to become increasingly problematic and it now takes up too much processing time during its live scan. Also I found out that Pixa is no longer under development.
Can anyone recommend an alternative image browser?
