ionForge Company has announced the Image Difference tool for Evolution, its source control and asset management solution.
Evolution’s new tool allows developers to detect even small changes in an image when they compare two versions. By allowing development teams, including graphic artists, developers, and project managers, to track changes in images through the life of a project, the tool is intended to help ensure
Evolution supports image comparison for all common image file formats, including BitMaP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, PCX, PNM, and TIF files. Evolution can compare images across different file formats.
Drew Clark, Project Lead of Reactor Interactive, commented: "Evolution’s latest features allow us to optimize and refine not only our code, but our art assets as well. By letting us physically see the difference between levels of image compression, we’ve been able to reduce load times, and texture memory without sacrificing visible quality in our higher-resolution textures."
