Automotive photography via app
Piranha now allows you to take photos, 360° Spins, 360° Interiors, and capture Videos - all with the same app. If you want to provide transparency for your potential customers and show them the vehicles in full detail - interior as well as exterior - our Piranha app is your solution.
What is Piranha?
The piranha app was designed to make automobile photography as simple and intuitive as possible, especially since current smartphones are in no way inferior to conventional digital compact cameras. Based on your wishes, it dictates to the photographer how many photos are to be made, which views to choose and helps to shoot the vehicle at the perfect angle. In real time, it checks whether the photos are suitable for further processing. Subsequently, the images are transmitted directly for processing.
The Piranha App streamlines your processes, helping you save time and money. From the creation of the photos to the handover for processing all in one app in just 4 steps:
- Select product – the number of images, the resolution of the images and your desired backdrop are already stored in the product
- Scanning or entering the vehicle identification number (VIN) – the VIN serves to uniquely assign the images to the vehicle
- Take pictures – the Piranha app helps to find the right views and angles through contour lines and sample images
- Transfer images – all images of a vehicle are summarized in a batch and can be transmitted immediately or at a later time for processing
The finished images are then made available within the agreed delivery time via the desired path. This can be e.g. via a download link via email, via the Piranha website or automatically via the Meg interface.
- Download and install the Piranha app on your mobile device from the App Store or Google Play Store.
- Create a test account by registering here.
- Launch the Piranha app and follow the instructions to create a new project.
- If you are satisfied with the quality of the images, you can create a full account and use the Piranha app regularly for your vehicle photography.
