I thought I saw where you were going until I got to the last line of your post ... " Idk I want my photos to look like that.. Mines need more detail."  Now I'm confused. So, do you want that odd effect, or are you hoping that it doesn't happen to your photos?

If you are seeing it in someone else's photos that are posted in flickr, it's probably an effect that they added in Photoshop.  If you want to do something like that, you'll have to mess with filters and (probably) multiple layers. The best way to find out exactly how it's done is to ask someone who did it. (The fun way, of course, is to experiment on your own.)  If you're hoping to avoid that effect, I wouldn't worry much.  It's not likely to happen by accident.

Could you edit your original post and add a link to a picture?

What is sounds like is drop shadows and film grain effects.  Those are done with gimp or photoshop.  There are some ways to use colored lighting and back lighting in SL and to play with the sun to get a dynamic shadow where you want it but I would bet what you are seeing is post processing and not part of the original snapshot.
