Originally posted on 3 February 2019. Find a more recent story on HDRMAPS’ free HDRIs here.

HDRMAPS – aka artist Grzegorz Wronkowski – has made 85 100 10,000 x 5,000px HDRI files available to download for free. The files are licensed for commercial use.

The images, which are provided in EXR format, are largely exteriors, although they include both rural and urban environments, under a wide range of lighting conditions.

As well as the HDRI itself, some come with sets of photographic backplates.

Updated 14 September 2019: The Freebies section of the site is now up to 100 free HDRIs. The files are also now available under a Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 licence.

Wronkowski has also just uploaded a new synthetic aerial HDRI, created in Terragen and provided at 8,192 x 4,096px resolution.
