Collaborative Artwork software

Postby hellocatfood » Thu Nov 13, 2008 4:37 am

Is there any sort of software that can act as a CVS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concurrent_Versions_System) BUT for images? I want to be able to collaboratively edit images made in Inkscape and other programs but save version changes, in a similar way to Subversion.

Thanks for your help!

You could kinda use svn or cvs and inkscape, dont know how well diffs would work with SVG tho.

I was hoping for an image software like Digikam, people have already asked if it could track when an image is edited in Gimp so it would recognize that and have a way to track the connections between originals and edited ones.

I've mentioned this on the GIMP forum as well. (http://www.gimptalk.com/forum/collabora ... 35544.html) They seem to think Subversion would work well, but still not sure. I've got it installed, but will give it a try and gauge the results.

Overall though this'd be a great feature and could get truly global art collaboration going!

Brilliant! Thanks for that. I think I'll still learn how to use Subversion, but Dropbox will do for now.

With that said, is anyone interested in collaborating on some art work?

You can see some of my ideas concerning 'open source art' on here http://www.antiant.co.uk/2008/11/20/open-source-art-zine/
