aRGB HDR to sRGB HDR Workflow

A while ago wrote a article for HDRLabs http://www.hdrlabs.com/news/index.php?id=2690683916811714984, in that article showed a workflow how to convert a hdr based on aRGB primaries into a hdr based on sRGB primaries that is used for generating the sIBL HDR set and for regular usage in sRGB range.

Now with the new updates ICC profiles (see below) made a a updated workflow.

ps many thanks to Gerardo Estrada for his help with setting up the workflow!
