Tweaking hdri in Photoshop

In this short video tutorial I will explain you how to enhance hdri map, so it will produce nice sharp shadows in your renders.

Some of the hdri maps are really poor quality, taking for instance 3 exposures 2EV apart doesn’t guarantee that you will achieve sharp shadows in your renderings. In situations like this, you can add direct light matching hdri sun position or just simply paint on hdri map with Photoshop. Please watch the video tutorial to get more information about the process.

    I am wondering if it is possible to photoshop HDR images by combining multi HDR to get the expected sky look? Such as to get more clouds?
    Thanks for your response in advance.
