Before uploading your real estate images to our AI photo editing service, ensuring they are of the highest quality possible is crucial. Optimising your images before uploading will save you time and effort during the editing process and help you achieve the best results. In this article, we'll provide tips for optimising image quality before uploading your images to our platform.

  1. Clean Your Camera Lens:

    Dust, fingerprints, or smudges on your camera lens can negatively impact image quality by causing blurriness, haze, or spots in your photos. Before you begin shooting, clean your lens with a soft, lint-free cloth or a specialised lens cleaning solution to ensure your images are crisp and clear.

  2. Use a Tripod:

    Camera shake can lead to blurry images, especially in low-light conditions or when using a slower shutter speed. A tripod can help stabilise your camera, resulting in sharper images with greater detail. A tripod also allows for more precise framing and composition, ensuring your images look professional and well-balanced.

  3. Choose the Right Camera Settings:

    Selecting the appropriate camera settings is crucial for capturing high-quality images. Use the lowest possible ISO to reduce noise and ensure your images are as sharp and clear as possible. Additionally, choose an appropriate aperture and shutter speed to control the depth of field and motion blur.

  4. Shoot in RAW Format:

    Shooting in RAW format provides the most flexibility during editing, as RAW files contain unprocessed sensor data from your camera. This allows you to adjust exposure, white balance, and other settings non-destructively, ensuring that your images maintain the highest quality possible.

  5. Pay Attention to Lighting:

    Proper lighting is essential for capturing high-quality real estate images. Ensure that your property is well-lit, using natural light whenever possible. Avoid harsh shadows or glare by shooting during the "golden hours" (early morning or late afternoon) or using diffusers and reflectors to soften and control the light.

  6. Check Image Resolution and Format:

    Before uploading your images, ensure they are in a supported format and have the appropriate resolution for your intended use, as discussed in our "Image Resolution and Quality Guidelines" and "Supported Image Formats" articles. Using the correct format and resolution will ensure that your images are compatible with our AI photo editing service and maintain their quality during editing.

Following these tips for optimising image quality before uploading, you can ensure that your real estate images are of the highest quality possible and achieve the best results using our AI photo editing service.
