How do Hdri's in VW work?  Can I use any image? Are there any limitations?

Can one import *.HDR files?  

If, for instance, I go to Dosch Design and purchase some of their Hdri product will it work in VW?

Help mentions this, but it's especially useful to note that the brightness and saturation can be set to values higher than 100%.  Problem is the render time devoted to experimenting with different values.  So, maybe test in a Viewport with lower dpi and lower quality HDRI until basics are established.

when testing hdris, be sure to turn other lights sources off so you can appreciate what the background provides to the image.
