Webshots Desktop Lite for Macintosh

About Webshots Desktop Lite

24 April 2000

Description

Webshots Desktop Lite allows you to automatically place an image on your Desktop by selecting from thousands of full-screen color images in categories such as sports, scenics, wildlife, travel, 3D, and more on Webshots <http://www.webshots.com/>. Future Macintosh versions (simply titled Webshots Desktop) will include image management and collections, screen savers, and much, much more! The software includes an automatic Web updater for new versions. You can also share photos with friends and family through the Webshots Community.

Webshots Desktop Lite works with your web browser as a helper application. The application itself does not need to be actively running on your computer to function. Simply select an image from the Webshots web site, and your web browser will automatically open Webshots Desktop Lite, change your Desktop image, and automatically quit Webshots Desktop Lite for you.

NOTICE: We currently do not directly support the ability to save multiple Webshots images to your computer and switch between them. To change your Desktop image, you will need to download the image directly from the Webshots web site. For a work-around to this, please read the FAQ - a link file is included in the Webshots Desktop folder.
