PixelNovel Timeline is a revolutionary version control system built for designers who use Adobe Photoshop. Timeline features a unique user interface that allows you to always see the file’s history and save file versions and get file versions without switching from the main Photoshop window.

PixelNovel Timeline

With Timeline one file is enough. All versions of your file will be safely kept on the pixelnovel server and you will be able to access them at any time from Photoshop or from your web browser. Timeline will instantly become an invaluable part of your every day workflow as it solves a whole bunch of problems and risks.

Version control system is a software system that allows you to easily store and manage multiple versions of the same file. Whenever you feel that you have done something worth saving you just click a magic button in the Timeline palette in Photoshop, and your file is saved as a version on the PixelNovel server. You can also add some comment explaining what was done in this version.

With Timeline you can easily experiment with your ideas without the fear of losing any of them. All your versions are securely saved on the server, so you can just play around with your ideas, submit all of them, and then just choose the best one. Or you can easily show all of them to your client via the online viewer and let them choose what they like.

“All versions of your file will be safely kept on the pixelnovel server…” My ideas and projects on the Internet? No, thank you! I personally like the snapshot function in Photoshop. This is the right solution for me. I have automatic backups (syncBack software) to the second disc and monthly backup on the external USB HDD. Who needs more?

It’s a cool plugin.

I am confused. Was this article written years ago? I opened Adobe Bridge (I have CS3) and it clearly states that Adobe Bridge has been discontinued. So what gives?
