(Better graphics, better FPS - resulting quadruple gameplay boost!)
RECOMMENDED SETTINGS (open spoiler to read)
To enjoy intended quality please use following settings (all variants are good):
For minecraft 1.8.8 and above:
You need OptiFine! (1.8.8+) (Minecraft + OptiFine Settings)
If you don't have OptiFine, watch our video tutorial below

Mipmap levels: 4 (Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Turn ON internal shaders (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
Antialiasing: FXAA 4x (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
NormapMap: ON (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
SpecularMap: ON (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
RenderResMul: 2,0000 (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
ShadowResMul: 4,0000 (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
Cloudshadow: OFF (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
OldLightning: OFF (Options -> Video Options -> Shaders)
Alternate blocks: ON
(Options -> Video Options)
Trees: Fancy
(Options -> Video Settings -> Details)
Better grass: OFF
(Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Better snow: OFF
(Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Fast Math: ON
(Options -> Video Options -> Perfomance)
Use VBOs: ON
(Options -> Video Options -> Use VBOs)
Additional Recommendations
1. Click “Edit Profile” in MC Launcher

For minecraft 1.8 to 1.8.7:
Variant # 1:
You need OptiFine!* (Minecraft + OptiFine Settings)
If you don't have OptiFine, watch our video tutorial below

Mipmap levels: 4
(Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Anisotropic Filtering: 4++
(Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Antialiasing: 4++
(Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Alternate blocks: ON
(Options -> Video Options)
Trees: Fancy
(Options -> Video Settings -> Details)
Better grass: OFF
(Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Better snow: OFF
(Options -> Video Options -> Quality)
Fast Math: ON
(Options -> Video Options -> Perfomance)
Use VBOs: ON
(Options -> Video Options -> Use VBOs)

*in default version 1.8+ mojang removed antialiasing option and decreased render quality in general, so you forced to use bad settings and you can't change this. You just can not achieve fine graphics with Vanilla (unmoded, official) minecraft 1.8+

Variant # 2:

(you need only mod, you don't have to use shaders):
You need OptiFine and Shaders Mod (Minecraft + OptiFine + Shaders Mod Settings)
or just Shaders Mod, but we suggest to use OptiFine aswell, to increase FPS
If you don't have OptiFine or Shaders Mod, watch our video tutorial below

Just mod, WITHOUT shaders (shaders set to NONE)
mod ITSELF will increase quality:
(Options -> Shaders)
NormapMap: ON
SpecularMap: ON
RenderResMul: 2,0000
ShadowResMul: 4,0000
HandDepth: 1,0000
CloudShadow: OFF

With activated shaders (shader pack selected):
(Options -> Shaders)
NormapMap: ON
SpecularMap: ON
RenderResMul: 1,0000++
ShadowResMul: 1,0000++
HandDepth: 1,0000
CloudShadow: OFF

for minecraft 1.7.10- and below:
Just set antialiasing to x8 or better to x16, that's all

In general:
to get 100% of realism textures we suggest to combine S&K Photo Realism with old popular LB Photo realism,
you can download it here:
Just put S&K above LB in the "selected resource packs" (options -> resource packs) - That will fill all gaps!

Added Resource Pack Shader Support
[​Parallax (POM), Bump Mapping and more]

We do not recommend to enable "Fancy Grass" option (use "OFF")

How to Install/Use OptiFine (Video Tutorial + Instructions):
Spoiler - OptiFine usage

Download & Install
1. Download latest OptiFine from official site: http://optifine.net/downloads
If you can't find latest version, here is the link to the latest version at the moment: OptiFine 1.8.3 (very unstable), OptiFine 1.8.1 (stable)
2. Once downloaded open .jar file and click install
After successful instalation start/restart minecraft launcher and select OptiFine profile.

Additional Recommendations (extra steps):
4. Click “Edit Profile”
5. Tick Box “JVM Arguments”
6. Change “JVM Arguments” (-Xmx1G) to your memory size (RAM)
EXAMPLE: (-Xmx2G) OR (-Xmx4G) OR (-Xmx8G) and click “Save Profile”

Configure OptiFine for S&K Photo Realism
Pre: We do not recommend to enable "Fancy Grass" option (use "OFF")
1. Inside minecraft go to Options -> Video Settings -> Quality
2. Set MipMap levels slider to 4 (will not increase lags)
3. Set Anisotropic Filtering to at least 2, Set Antialiasing to at least 2 (will affect FPS a bit, but must be done, it will greatly boost texture pack graphics, use hight values if your PC can handle it)
Additional Recommendations (extra steps for fast PCs):
4. Set Anisotropic Filtering to 16
Set Antialiasing to 16
Navigate to Options -> Video Settings and explore more video options that can improve graphics (don't use fancy grass/snow)

OptiFine 1.8.3 may cause game bugs, such as non-transparent leaves or locked minecraft window scale. To make leaves transparent again use "Fancy trees" settings, to unlock window scaling, set antialiasing to "none" (or use fullscreen)

Using Shaders (How to download and install shaders mod and shader packs - Video tutorial + Instructions):
Using shaders (instructions spoiler)

Shaders will affect FPS dramatically. Recommended 8gb ram, alot of GPU memory and fine CPU clock speed.
If you want realistic shadows, lights, great realistic water, fog and wind! Then you want to play minecraft with shaders!

Install Shaders:
we strongly recommend to use shaders with OptiFine to double your FPS and make game totally playable!
1. Download and Install OptiFine (read above)
OptiFine version must match shaders mod version!
2. Download latest shaders mod here: Shaders Mod (updated by karyonix)
use download link under download section of the topic. Important: This is only shaders mod, that allows you to use shaders, you need also to download shaders.
3. Download shaders at the same topic: Shaders Mod (updated by karyonix)
Pick shaders you like under Shaderpacks section, we suggest to download more than one, then you can choose best for you. (you can also search google for "minecraft shaderspacks")
4. Install shaders mod, by opening .jar file (ShadersMod-v2.4.11mc1.8.jar - filename example you should open)
Make sure to close minecraft and minecraft launcher before installing. Important: When installing Select OptiFine profile!
5. Put shaders inside shaderpacks folder: Go to %appdata%/.minecraft/shaderpacks (you can paste this line into RUN or into File Explorer), put all downloaded shaderpacks in this folder.
6. Launch the game, select OptiFine+Shaders profile: Go to options->shaders, you can see all available shaders on the left (all shaders inside %appdata%/.minecraft/shaderpacks folder), you need to find what shaderpack you like! Try different to find the best for you!
As for options on the right side: RenderResMul, ShadowResMul, HandDepth - more is better and more is more lags, you have to find comfortable settings.

NOTES: bug: double flowers may unroot and drop as items in very rare cases.
RenderResMul is affecting game even with NONE shaders selected, always set it to 2.000 when you not using shaders!
This mod requires recent and fast graphic card with NVIDIA or AMD GPU.
Intel HD Graphics drivers *.3408 to *.3621 do not work and will crash.
Intel HD Graphics driver can run without crash but it is still slow.

About Our Texture Pack:
I'm creating this pack with my girlfriend, we are working very hard to bring you best game experience! S&K is the first letters of our names and nicknames, that’s why we called it S&K Photo Realism.

We are following these principles:
* HD
* Quality
* Realistic
* Harmony

As I said, I'm working with my girlfriend, so yeah, the pack has already almost all flowers updated :)

Currently it has almost all basic textures

Some textures are taken by our own camera, some are drawn from zero, some purchased and some from free stores (as raw material). The point is we are using (and will use) only best textures for this pack.

I removed all unnecessary things from the pack, so you can combine your favarite HD pack and that one, to get 100% textures done. Just add S&K Photo Realism, on the top of the list.

The link works just fine for me. Click on the adfly link, wait 5 seconds (without clicking anything else on the page), then click the "skip ad" button in the top-right corner. That will redirect you to the download page.
