I was a paid member of Webshots for well over 10 years and absolutely LOVED it - then it got sold a couple of times and kept changing until the final version today which is actually back in the hands of a couple of the original owners. It is totally changed and AWFUL!!!! No longer a photo-sharing site - just a pathetic excuse to try to get people to pay a monthly fee to download a whole TWO shots a day for a screensaver. The owners are just greedy idiots who ruined one of the best sites on the web and in the process REALLY pissed off a lot of folks who had trusted them to protect their shots. Fortunately, I had backed up not only all of my own shots, but also all the pro shots and shots of other users, as well as the original versions of the software - so at least I am still able to enjoy all these pictures on my desktop and as a screensaver. A lot of people did NOT back up their collections on their own systems and lost them. What we ALL lost were all the tags and descriptions that we spent hours and hours adding. These creeps would be best served to just go hide out somewhere because there are a lot of very unhappy former customers who would love to get a piece of them...... DO NOT SUPPORT THIS SITE!!!!!!
In summary, I would not recommend WebShots to a friend.
