    OK, I've confirmed that you do have a standard gamut display, so it's most likely closely approximating sRGB. I would try changing your working space to sRGB until you have properly set up your workflow. That way you don't have to worry about converting to sRGB from the aRGB profile every time you submit something to the web. You will lose saturation if you post an image to the internet that is in the AdobeRGB colorspace as most browsers are not color managed and will always assume the color numbers in the image file are in the sRGB colorspace. Try it out and let me know if that helps. With your existing images, before you save them from Photoshop (and assuming they are in the AdobeRGB colorspace), be sure to CONVERT them to sRGB and then save them. This should help some as well.

    Yes and No. It depends on your understanding of color management and how your files are being used. Most people will use either AdobeRGB or sRGB as their working space, but for your specific case I would recommend sRGB.

    If your monitor is calibrated yes. Otherwise, maybe.

    No, that software is not going to work very well. You simply can't calibrate a display by eye. The fact that in the setup it asks you to use the manufacturer's ICC default profile screams bad news. A generic display profile is no where near accurate enough to be used for anything serious. Two identical displays that came off the factory one after another would have different profiles, so you can't use a generic profile. Also, as you need to calibrate your display every 2-3 weeks, I can't imagine getting any sort of reproducible results using this software. Also the fact their "Opinions" section is made up of accolades from shareware download sites and not graphics professionals, I think speaks to the caliber of this application. If you can, get a hardware calibration device.

    Definetly not, you should never assign your display profile to your image. The only reason you would do that was explained at the beginning of this thread. And given you are not doing hardware calibration you can not use that workflow. Because you have not done a proper calibration/profiling, you should not be assigning profiles to anything.
