Take Charge of Your Creative Process: Effortless Image Asset Management with Source Compare
Learn how Source Compare Source Compare can bring effortless version control and collaborative feedback to your design process.
When it comes to the design process, managing image assets can be a complex task. Over the years, design teams have relied on a variety of methods to keep track of different versions of an image, each with its own set of advantages and drawbacks.
Firstly, there's the old standby of file naming conventions. Teams would rename each updated image with a new version number. This method, while straightforward, quickly becomes cumbersome with multiple iterations and doesn't lend itself well to collaboration or feedback.
Alternatively, some teams have turned to intricate folder organization systems, creating new folders for each version of an image. Although this method offers more structure, it can lead to a convoluted mess of folders, especially in larger projects with multiple collaborators.
The advent of cloud storage platforms like Google Drive or Dropbox introduced document versioning, allowing teams to upload new versions while keeping a history of previous ones. Yet, this system tends to fall short when it comes to managing feedback or facilitating collaboration.
Design tools offering built-in version control offered a glimpse of hope, albeit often limited to files created within the tool itself and lacking in collaborative features such as feedback and voting systems.
Finally, there are the humble email or chat systems - simple, but quick to devolve into chaos. It's all too easy to lose track of the latest version or the feedback provided for a particular version in an overflowing inbox or bustling group chat.
While these methods may suffice for smaller projects, they struggle to scale effectively. As your project grows, managing and tracking different image versions becomes increasingly complex. Gathering and managing feedback is another challenge altogether.
