Problem statement: The efficient management and retrieval of the enormous volumes of information generated by many imaging applications is still a challenging problem. Approach: In this study we are particularly interested with the use of object oriented techniques for the management of digital images. Indeed, it is widely accepted that the use of data abstraction in object oriented modeling enables real world objects to be well represented in information systems. Results: Object orientation is well suited for digital images management systems, which require the ability to handle multiple type content. This study proposes a conceptual model, based on object versioning techniques, which represents the semantics in order to allow the continuity and pattern of changes of images to be determined over time. Conclusion/Recommendations: By first storing a generic image object and then storing any changes to the object as versions, a major reduction in storage can be achieved.
