Online marketplaces sell nearly everything these days. Many of them are dependent on the users submitting photos to showcase the product or service being offered. Like a box of chocolates, not all the uploaded photos a marketplace receives turn out to be winners! In this blog post we’ll focus on how Snappr helps its vacation rental, venue, & home improvement marketplace partners gain an edge on the competition.

Before we jump in let’s define the editing improvements you are about to see:

1. The Clutter Bomb

Don’t let your home improvement specialists sell their work short. It’s hard to prep a worksite for a good photo shoot.

Editing Service: Object Removal (lots of it!)

2. I’ll just be 5 minutes...

In dense cities you will almost always run into parked cars when trying to photograph the exterior of a property. Don’t fret, our expert editors have made more cars disappear than your favorite magician - Presto!!

3. Where’s the party?!

Think we got lucky on the one above? How about 5 cars...bam!

4. Duck Duck, Gross!

Remember when Uncle Tony decided to fry a turkey on your new cement pool patio...Don’t worry, we’ll take care of that old grease stain (we mean the actual stain, we can’t fix Uncle Tony).

Editing Service: Spot Removal

5. Got the Blues?

The pandemic restrictions may have made life slightly dull over the last year but that doesn’t mean your vacation rental photos need to follow suit. Travel is back! Highlight those outdoor areas with crispness and color.

Side note: The orientation of the photo was off. The white lines indicate where the corrections were made. This one was a curveball. Great eye if you detected this change as well.
