Work with sketches and design projects requiring the use of multiple types of reference materials. Organize a database with quick access to individual files, quickly preview different items, download and relocate them by dragging and dropping, access browser content, etc.

You can download PureRef 1.9.2 from our software library for free. This free tool was originally produced by Idyllic Pixel. PureRef lies within Photo & Graphics Tools, more precisely Viewers & Editors. Our built-in antivirus checked this download and rated it as virus free.

From the developer:

PureRef was created to be a simple and lightweight tool for artists to organize and view their reference images. You can drag-n-drop files from your computer or images directly from browsers. You can also use the right-click menu or ctrl+v to paste them. You can edit your images in a few ways to fit your reference need. The canvas is your scene which can also be used in several ways.

You may want to check out more software, such as DupDetector, CrazyTalk or SunlitGreen Photo Editor, which might be similar to PureRef.
