Since a room to be showcased in its entirety needs to be shot at a wide angle, most of the images of houses on sale online seem cluttered and does not call out to the home lovers.

All these provide images in the RAW format which when analysed by a `skilled technician` can go through a remarkable transformation, nothing short of pure magic.
The skilled technician is none other than a software expert who has the basic sense of colour balance and contrasts in an image. Most of these images would have a lot more to be desired as these are images clicked in automatic settings in the camera. The contrast, light and the angles might not gel with the mood of the image. This is not the case with just these simple cameras but also that of any image clicked by any camera, no matter how high it might be, there is still a lot of work that happens thanks to the aid of a computer software, and a skilled technician. It would be safe to say that any image that is clicked will never be perfect as the settings are never perfect in the real world.
