Often these "model" sites and p0rn sites and so on, use a very high
resolution scanner (1200dpi not interopolated) like a drum scanner to get
the image quality you see here, including the glossyness.
I could be wrong here, but that is generally how they are done. Then they
can retouch some areas. I looked at the site and it looked like some retouch
work was done on one model's eyes for example.
