Easier downloading, the grid scale control, and other UX improvements. This update will make your workflow in Pichon more comfortable and efficient.
New Pichon for Mac is live now. Here’s what the new version brings.
Pichon is a 2-in-1 app where you can keep your image collections right next to a huge gallery of Icons8 graphics. That’s why we call it a fuel-saving designer’s asset box. Organize your references with AI, find graphics for your projects, drag-and-drop them into your design app.
You can now change the scale of image grids using the slider in the top panel. Before, users often preferred our website over Pichon: they could zoom out to view more assets in the grid and choose what suited them best. You can now do it in Pichon.
This is particularly helpful with icons. The default zoom is set to the minimum to show them in a pixel-perfect size, but you can now make them larger to check the closeup.
The slider is available in all sections.

Starting from this version, you can simply click “Download,” and it is done!
Use the new “Copy” button or just press ⌘+C and paste the asset anywhere. Works also with batch selection.
You can now drag and drop images not only from the image grid but also from the right panel preview.
Thanks to the Masonry layout, image previews on the Illustrations tab now appear in their actual aspect ratio. Also, we decided to get rid of checkerboard backgrounds.
Pichon now runs natively on ARM processors without Rosetta. So, if you’re on an M1 or M2 machine, you might notice that the app now works even faster and smoother than before.
If you’re already using Pichon, it will auto-update to the new version. If you want to try it out, you can download it from our website or get it from the App Store.
