Customizing your desktop and screensaver is a fun way to make your computer feel like an extension of your personality. Webshots Desktop offers a way to add professional quality photos to your desktop, but doesn't offer anything different over similar programs.
With a cluttered screen and perplexing tabs, this program's interface is slightly disappointing. The tabs along the top let users view their wallpaper options, two others require registration for favorite members and online photos, and a final lets users look at the saved pictures on their computer. Below are 12 thumbnails of photos the program offers, ranging from landscapes to penguins, and all are very professionally done. To the right of the larger example photo are a series of commands like: Set As Wallpaper, Send Ecard, Order Prints, and View Slideshow.
Webshots Desktop easily applied the photos in its bank as our wallpaper and performed all its other advertised tasks well. However, we failed to be impressed because it didn't offer anything different over Windows' wallpaper program. The professional quality pictures are nice, but aren't beyond anything users couldn't find on their own. Since this is a free download, users have nothing to lose, but we would recommend handling wallpaper yourself as Webshots doesn't offer enough to make us change.
