SRGB color using Nikon D40 and Corel Paint Shop Pro X2

I use a Nikon D-40 camera and use Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo X2 for my editing software. Does someone know the correct settings for both my camera and Paint Shop Pro X2 in order to reproduce the truest colors when working only in a digital format? I am not concerned about printing photos, just reproducing them on the web.

My Nikon has three color modes: Ia (srgb) IIa (adobergb) IIIa (SRGB).

Also, should I transfer the imbedded ICC color profile when prompted when I download my images from the Nikon?

Images for the web should always be tagged with the sRGB color space since most web browsers do not employ color management. This means, for example, if you assigned the Adobe RGB color space to an image, it would look completely washed out and pale in a web browser. So make sure you embed the sRGB color space in images destined for the web.

I use sRGB on my SLR camera all the time anyway, because my printer cannot reproduce the larger colour-gamut of Adobe RGB anyway, so there's no point in using it. Even prints I have made at a general photo-lab look fine in sRGB.
