Taking photos that sell cars

Great photos sell cars, so it's important to get some good shots of your car looking its best. We show you how.

The first step is to clean your car thoroughly, in most cases a wash and a vacuum is all you need. An easy and convenient way is a visit to your local self carwash.

The camera

It used to be the case that you needed a really good digital camera to take quality photos of you car but these days your smartphone like an iPhone or Android phone will take excellent photos of your car for sale.

What to photograph?

Remember to take more than one picture of each area to give you choice later on. Try to keep the whole car in the image.

Uploading your photos

On MotorFind you can upload as many photos as you like but choose about 10 of your best photos and decide on the main image - an image of the whole car taken from the left or right front corner is best.
