TAKING GREAT PHOTOS HELPS SELL YOUR CAR!
Proper, clear photos will be the single most important marketing tool our auction company has to promote your vehicle. That said, we put together this page to help guide you through the process. Your photos will be featured in the “LISTINGS” section on sgauction.net website and used for many other promotional publications and websites… getting this right is huge!
LET’S START WITH WHAT WE HAVE IDENTIFIED AS “3 BEST PRACTICES” FOR TAKING AWESOME PHOTOS:
1) Camera Set-Up; within your camera settings, set image size at, or as close to 1500 KB (equal to 1.5 MB or higher) and select 16:9 aspect ratio setting.
2) Camera Orientation; make sure to take your photos in a widescreen format (landscape). To do this, hold your phone or camera horizontally and back up until the entire vehicle fits within the screen.
3) Location, Location, Location; find an outdoor location to take your photos. The perfect location would be on pavement with an attractive, or a simple, or an attractive simple background. The photo should, ideally, be free of people, other vehicles, distracting clutter.
Now that you have the camera settings and the location dialed in and ready, let’s get into how the photos should look.
