Framestore digital matte painter Jacek Pilarski has made all of the 4K resolution HDRI panoramas on Location Textures, his online reference library, free to download.

There are currently over 50 460 HDRIs available free on the website at 4,096 x 2,048px resolution, including both skies and outdoor environments, shot in a range of weather conditions.
