Default how people make photos look more like animation? Any software is used?

I am taking photos for online real estate and I want to know how people make the photos look like animation or kind of cartoon. They look way better than the real original photos before editing. Any Idea? Please advise. Thank you!!

It would help if you had an example you could post or link to. My best guess for what you want to do is to apply a small amount of edge preserving blur, then increase the color saturation and contrast.
Another way would be to use HDR software or use local contrast enhancement.

This is how many second-rate HDR photos look to my eye. You may be thinking of those -- it is common in real-estate photography to use HDR, and it is not uncommon for the photos to be more skewed toward making everything look mid-illumination bright than for it to look natural.

I reckon the real estate agents like the exaggerated HDR effects because it looks more like the sketches and 3d renders the architects firm provided them with. Comparisons, photo-montage of the (virtual as of yet) building in its (real) surroundings, etc. all become easier.

The fact it (often) makes for warmer tones is a seller, too.
