Photorealistic Texturing

Photorealistic texturing is literally the art of creating textures so vibrant that when applied to a virtual environment, and are processed through the render engine, make that object seem so real, that it could be from a photograph of a physical location.

Photorealism is easiest when applied to natural environments, and hardest when it is applied to faces, particularly human faces.
