Webshots is a sprawling, community-oriented photo- and
video-sharing site that also makes prominent use of professional
Webshots Desktop software lets you upload your own photos to
your album pages on the Webshots site, where you can track views
But it’s also a great way to liven up your desktop. As a free
member of the Webshots community, you’re entitled to five downloads
per day from the pro Gallery (premium members get unlimited pro
downloads), which are then pressed into service as your rotating
desktop wallpaper and, if you like, screensaver.
You can customize how often the images change and how. You can
also spice up the mix with images of your own, as well as photos
taken by other members of the Webshots community.
On the downside, the images you download from Webshots are
specially encoded, so they can only be used with the Webshots
Note: An update to the software is due shortly that will
allow users to manage video files alongside their photos.
