OK, am I just stupid or is anyone else having trouble adding HDRI’s to the content browser?  It doesn’t seem to matter what tab I use or what selection I make when I add the folder (even Backgrounds), nothing shows up in the browser.

Are they supposed to?

I was able to add them in C8 (added DT’s Luminance), but now I can’t add them to 8 (beyond what I have) or 8.5.

Besides, if you add a folder under the “Misc” tab, one of the options is “Backgrounds.”

I don’t have the product, but were they added as scenes, or straight HDRIs? Just off the top of my mind, I think it would have to be added as a scene preset with the HDRI pre-loaded in the scene’s background.

I find it somewhat liberating not to be encumbered by accuracy.

I figured it out.  The files I was adding had to be under the Presets/Backgrounds folder somewhere.
