USED to be wonderful - now it STINKS!!!!!

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... (Read the full review)

In summary, I would not recommend WebShots to a friend.

For me the same. 10 years member and felt good with it. I even get weekly best photos. Then the lot was gone and deleted. Did not see a notification... nothing. Very bad .... Cannot understand how they could delete all so quickly. Never, never again WebShots.

In summary, I would not recommend WebShots to a friend.

I had been a member of Webshots for over 10 years. I ranted and raved how great Webshots is, how easy it was to upload and share images. Now I just found out they went and changed over to Smile and deleted all of my 10+ years of images. They claim they sent out numerous emails stating this was going to happen, but I had never received 1 email from them, the last email I have from them is in September of 2012. I have a specific folder within my email for Webshots so I can track my statistics that they send out via email. I now have lost soo many memories from over the years, I can definitely say disaster. When I emailed them, they proceeded to tell me that they sent out notifications to download and save images and if we didn't they would be deleted, then the guy had the nerve to ask me if I wanted to sign up for their new site called Smile. Will never recommend Webshots again. Aggravated, Disappointed, and Upset Past Customer.

In summary, I would not recommend WebShots to a friend.
