Review: Webshots Wallpaper And Screensaver for Mac beautifies your desktop

Choose your new wallpaper from hundreds of stunning images or create a slideshow for a screensaver.

Webshots Wallpaper And Screensaver for Mac saves you the trouble of having to search for wallpapers and screensavers manually on the Web by giving you a collection of high-resolution, professionally shot images. It's easy to use and integrates well with Mac OS X's Desktop and Screen Saver preferences, but requires you to buy a premium version to unlock all its features. This may put you off, since there are similar apps available for free.

After a straightforward installation, Webshots Wallpaper And Screensaver for Mac greets you with a nice interface overlay, which showcases the images available categorized by theme. While all users may view the image collection, only premium subscribers can access every single photo. Once a picture grabs your attention, you can add it to your playlist by dragging-and-dropping it. The drag-and-drop functionality is limited, though; while you can export a photo by dragging it out to the Desktop, you cannot add a photo to the app in a similar manner. On the plus side, integration with the Desktop and Screen Saver preferences pane is seamless. Another nice touch is the option to display a calendar within the screensaver.

If you're looking for an app that features an extensive collection of photos that can also be used as a wallpaper and screensaver manager, you should try Webshots Wallpaper And Screensaver for Mac. Its high resolution photos, ease of use, and extra features -- like the optional calendar -- make it worthwhile, even if it's a premium app.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Webshots Wallpaper And Screensaver for Mac 1.2.0.92.
