If this doesn't resolve the problem, a call to their broker would be in order to express your dissatisfaction.
If you still get a bad result, ask for the photos to be re-taken, by a professional if necessary. If you are still not happy, ask for more photos or consider asking to cancel the listing agreement and start over with another Realtor.

YOUR BEST RECOURSE is to call the Listing Agent and ask for new photos to be uploaded. Many othrs below offered specific suggestions - all good. Please read the excellent answers!
Here in Atlanta over two dozen photos may be uploaded to a listing. We have seen amazingly wonderful photos for $50,000 homes and inadequate photos for homes in the $500,000 range. The house price is not the determining factor. Professional photos are not required but good resolution and lighting are essential.
If using a professional photographer is not in the budget, then using common sense as a substitute is critical. Common sense is always in the Budget! THE SELLER MUST ASSIST the Listing Agent on picture-taking day by making sure Kitchen counters are cleared off, that dirty clothes are not scattered all around when photos are taken, that Bathroom photos look inviting (toilet closed!) and that everything is neat and attractive. NEAT doesn't mean expensive, just PUTTING YOUR BEST FACE FORWARD!
After all, we only get one opportunity to make a first impression - right? Get your Listing agent to assist you in changing the photos.
Have a happy day -
The photos should be straight, they should be properly lit, they should be uncluttered. There should be no toys or other distracting objects on the floors, tables or furniture. Exterior photos should be taken on sunny days, preferably early or late in the day with sunlight on the front of the house if physically possible. The sky should be blue. If the sun is not out on the shooting day, the photographer should come back on a good day. It make a huge difference! Also, if the home is listed in the winter with brown lawns and snow, the photographer should come back when things green up if the house is still on the market.

Did the Realtor take the photos himself? Did he tell you that he would, or did he tell you that they will
bring in a professional photographer.... It all depends on the value of your home the size, and if
there are good ways to take better photos, based on a specific floor plan that makes it difficult to
show the property well photographically. May be then a video would be more helpful.
But you first need to talk to your Agent and find out who took the photos and what it is that you do not
like about them, they can be re-taken and changed.... So speak up and let the agent know what you
would like changed. It also always depends on what you arranged with your listing agent, full service,
professionally taken photos etc.
Just have the talk first and see what he suggests to do about it.
I hope this helps...
