After using HDR Pro and toning a 32 bit image in ACR, I save it as a psd file. I am looking to then save that image for web or as a jpeg while keeping the same tonal changes I made in ACR. There is no way to do that currently. I spent about 45 minutes on the phone with Adobe's customer support and he could not find a solution either and suggested I send my request to Adobe to have them provide a solution in the next version. Thank you.

You have to apply tone mapping to the HDR images to bring them down to 8 or 16 bit/channel before you can save them to a web compatible file format.

Web browsers don't understand 32 bit/channel or High Dynamic Range.
