Default Re: Stop calling everything photorealistic!

Because by the definition of photorealistic, they are:

pho·to-re·al·ism (ft-r-lzm)
n.

A style of painting that resembles photography in its meticulous attention to realistic detail.

photo-real·ist adj. & n.
photo·real·istic adj.

So maybe the original poster doesn't really understand what is meant by photorealistic.

If it completely looked like a photo then it would be called a photo, not photorealistic.
