Car Photo Background Removal and Editing

In today’s visually-driven world, stunning photography is critical to engaging audiences, especially in the automotive sales industry. Dealerships thrive or die on the quality of their online images. Photos are usually the first thing a customer looks at when starting their buying process. A poor-quality image that doesn’t impress the shopper can instantly turn them off from buying a car that might have been the perfect fit.

You’ve probably faced many hurdles when trying to take high-quality car photos. It’s difficult to create affordable, professional-looking car backgrounds that meet OEM standards and differentiate your inventory. Fortunately, Impel’s automated background removal technology makes it easy for dealerships to create top-notch vehicle images. Not only will it impress your customers, but it will improve the consistency and professionalism of your car photos.

The Problem with Car Photo Backgrounds

The background can make or break a car photo. To make the car the center of attention, one must minimize car photo background distractions and clutter. Even professional photographers can struggle with this in the confines of a dealership lot. As a reputable car retailer, you also want photo backgrounds to be consistent across all of your vehicle images. 

Additionally, many car brands have Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) requirements for dealerships using images of their brand, but your images need to look like real cars that were taken on a real lot, with the VIN-specific imagery. All of these nuances on top of photography logistics, quality, and uploading speed, make taking satisfactory images quite difficult.
