I'd like to make an HDRI image out of this spot in Manhattan. I've been looking for a tool that allows me to create an HDRI map out of a google earth location, but it does not seem possible to do easily, so I think I'll just have to stitch one together using Photoshop. I don't know much about photoshop, so how would I do this?
Just a few minutes after posting this, I found a YouTube video explaining the process well and in detail. I really need to learn to wait more than 10 minutes before asking around.
