14.)  Why are the images so realistic ?
The images are realistic because it is processed from an original photograph. The biggest difference is that the images have been processed into different zones or objects so that textures can flow on the image just like a striped fabric flows around the folds on the garment, or a label follows the contours of a bottle.

15.)  Can I achieve similar realistic images using a regular image manipulation software like photoshop ?
Photoshop is a good option when you need a change of colour or texture on a flat surface, but for complex photos where the textures or images have to flow around the object in the photo to give the image a realistic feel 3D-Vis should be the tool of choice
