Lead the way with inventory photos that are truly a reflection of your dealership’s brand image.
Dealer Image Pro is a leader in standardizing the photo process for auto retail. We know that the frontline is online and there isn’t a better time-to-market than an in-house solution, so we developed Photo Assistant™ to put the power of professional photos back in the hands of the dealer.
Photo Assistant™ enables an in-house photographer to perform efficiently and autonomously by giving them wireframe guidelines, live inventory lists, and finishing the photos with professional editing. We give you the consistent, high-quality photos you need for your inventory and the content your customers need to make an informed buying decision.
The ultimate tool for your in-house photographer. Image perfect photos, every time.
Harnessing the power of the iPad Pro®, Photo Assistant™ uses a whopping 12 megapixel camera with on-screen guidelines to create beautiful, crisp, and consistent images of your inventory. With a solid 4G LTE connection, your photographer has an up-to-date inventory list in hand at all times, ensuring optimum Time-to-Market.
Our guidelines turn anyone into a natural photographer.
During the capture process, step by step the guides walk your team member through the process in exactly the same way, every single time you photograph a vehicle. There are photo guides for a coupe, sedan, truck or SUV. There are over 40 guidelines to choose from. Your Photo Assistant™ trainer and specialist will place the order of the guides to move your team member the most efficient way to photograph the vehicle.
Your cars have met their match.
Never capture the same new car twice.
Our VIN Duplication System, VDS™ is a powerful piece of tech. VDS™ stores images of new vehicles captured. It prompts the operator whenever he or she scans the VIN of a new vehicle with identical attributes. The operator snaps a picture of the VIN and window sticker, and images from the identical new vehicle are matched instantly. VDS™ saves labor hours and gets real photos from your new vehicle inventory online fast.
Stay informed, stay on track.
Time-to-market is everything. Your photographer needs to know which vehicles still need photos at a glance — so Photo Assistant™ puts an up-to-the-minute inventory list in their hands. Together, Photo Assistant™ and Autoport™ create clear and concise communication between your inventory tools, your managers, and your photographer to maximize efficiency and shorten your overall time-to-market.
Turn any staff member into a pro photographer in two days.
Two to three days of on-site training for your chosen staff member familiarizes them with the device, teaches them ideal vehicle positioning, and assists in creating a workflow to achieve the best possible time-to-market.

We don’t do lot shots.
Photo staging is the first step towards flattering photos of your vehicles. Uniform backgrounds, free from distraction, across your inventory create a consistent viewing experience. It can be simply a south-facing side of a building, an assembled free-standing wall, or a custom-designed photo booth. Whatever you choose, we’ve designed hundreds of staging areas. And we’ll design yours for free.
Say hello to a new era of full motion video.
With intuitive video guides strategically added between our existing photo guides, Photo Assistant™ brings your vehicles to life with ease. Our breakthrough TPS™ or Two-Part Stabilization creates silky smooth clips for every vehicle. Custom voiceover is generated automatically by the options listed in your inventory tools. The intelligently produced video is published on your website for your customers and to your YouTube® channel for SEOs within hours.
The difference between good to great is in the details.
With Photo Assistant™ wireframe guides we knew we could teach anyone to capture the perfect photo compositions. With your Photo Assistant™ subscription, your photos are perfectly cropped, color-corrected, adjusted for highlights, shadows, and our Digital Wax® filter is applied for the perfect crisp set of photos for every vehicle.
