Most people won't do "different" or "extra" things if they don't have
to - it's human nature. Make svn part of the required process - their
changes *can't* get into <environment> without being in svn and you
basically force the issue.

Maybe let them have a "playground" environment for them to do the
pixel-nudging work, but if they want to get integrated with the rest
of the build, they have to use svn? And cut off access to the rest of
the build by any means other than svn.
