That's actually a pretty good tutorial.

I would shy away from using Exponential color mapping but I guess you can say that's preference (though, it's really not).

Nicely explained tutorial. I wrote about the same method a few years back. Good to see its still a popular workflow :)

Interesting. Nice tut. The technique is out there as Z mentioned.

Question though:
"HDRI stands for High Dynamic Resolution Image, which in turn means " < - I always thought the R in HDRI was for "Range" ?

Yup, it's Range not Resolution.

have a play with this, great for lighting and setting up cameras too. Nice way of explaining the tute btw, nice and sexy voice - like a white barry white.
