Handling a lot of binaries with subversion

Hello folks !

I am a new comer in this list and new svn user.
I found svn fonctionality very good that s why I am trying to use it
for our needs.

So my goal is to handle a lot of pictures using Svn. Why ?
Because we are several users updating a common reopsitory with new
shots. and also to enable adding these shots on my laptop for example
and then update the SVN repository !
This has double advantage !
- handle parallel update
- Backup all our pictures live ! ( all data are replicated on one
server + 2 laptops )

But I found one issue ... On each client used disk space is huge. we
have near to 5Gb pictures, and on the different test I have done, all
files are duplicated. So for 5Gb pictures it takes 10 Gb disk space.

Does some of you know any way to avoid all duplicated data ? Is there
any option to avoid ?

(I can figure out why you keep a local previous version for a txt
file, but for binary I don't understand since you cannot compare ?? ?
  )
