About us

Welcome to www.imagebasedlife.com!

Our mission is to serve the ever growing standards of quality for professionals pushing the boundaries in such industries as film, videogames, advertisement and product design.

WWW.ImageBasedLife.COM was created with a single goal in mind – providing the digital artists around the world with panoramic HDR environments of the ultimate quality. At IBL we are committed to delivering the highest resolution hdr maps with the highest dynamic range to our customers.

With an HDR panoramic environment map of an unprecedented resolution up to 30,000 pixels wide you no longer need a separate backplate image since an hdr panorama of such resolution will support your background needs even for a large-scale print or a highres cinematic rendering. Such resolution will preserve all the details in reflection passes giving your 3D surface a life-like appearance.

But anyway our packages includes backplates also so you can choose where to put  your art-piece.
We deliver our HDR Maps with a balanced grading which allows you be creative even more and process it through toning to get hrd-look for the final image.

For any questions/inquires or product support please contact us info@imagebasedlife.com
