Automatically blur car plates in user-provided photos

Does your car website get pictures from users?  

Before, you either had to manually obscure number plates or put this chore on users. This approach wastes your team's resources and delays the time to market for each listing. 

Now you can simply use Claid.  

Our new feature automatically detects and blurs out vehicle registration plates in photos. License Plate Blur is automatic, accurate and compatible with other image editing features of Claid.ai. 

Automotive websites can use License Plate Blur to: 

  • Protect car owners' privacy
  • Automate the operation if it was done manually before
  • Establish a consistent approach to anonymizing plates across all listings on your site
  • Ensure compliance with American DPPA, European GDPR, or similar privacy legislation

License Plate Blur also stacks up with other operations such as quality enhancement and background removal to instantly transform user-generated images to any requirements.

 

Blur all plates at once — whether it's a single car or a busy road 

Our AI automatically detects and blurs out all the registration plates in photos.  

You can be sure that random cars' plates won't get exposed — even if a picture was taken in a crowded parking space.
 

Process pictures taken from any angle with perfect accuracy 

The blur effect is precise and works with images shot from different angles. 

Unlike traditional image moderation software, Claid leverages the latest computer vision technologies that match human editing in accuracy and the quality of results. 
 

Combine with quality enhancement and background removal for cars

Claid is your one-stop shop for all things image preparation. 

You can use License Plate Blur together with upscaling, background removal, quality restoration, color adjustment and other features to transform user-provided photos to meet your standards.

Note: Background removal has a mode designed specifically for the automotive industry. It detects the car's edges and cuts it out of the background with the highest precision.

Case study. Claid has already proven its effectiveness in editing and enhancing automotive images at scale. For example, Agencia uses Claid to fix colors on 360 car photos. Read the full customer story  to learn more.
