How many of you use the webshots desktop software? If you do, then you would know that most of the photos are available for download at a price and all the high res (1600 x 1200) photos are paid.
I have written a small program that can download any number of high res photos for free! I found a script on the internet that downloaded photos for free from Webshots, so decided to make a software of my own.
Every photo on Webshots has an Image ID. This software needs Image ID's to download the photos. Now let's say you visit the Webshots Gallery:
Step 1: You type in www.webshots.com
Step 2: You click on Gallery
Step 3: You click on Nature Scenes
Step 4: You click on Beaches
Step 5: Look at the URL on the IE address bar
Step 6: Copy this URL.
Step 7: Start my software, and click on From Page
Step 8: Paste the URL in the box. Click OK. Wait...
Step 9: All Image ID's on that page are listed in the Image ID's section
Step 10: Click Download 1600 x 1200 and watch them come...
All images are saved in the folder from which the program is running by default. Ofcourse, you can change it.
Since a single gallery could have more than one page(s), so you can do this for every page. On a fast connection, the photos hardly take some time to download. Once downloaded, double click the photos to add them to you Webshots software.
I want people to test and use this software. So if you are interested, then send me a mail or IM me on Yahoo! or MSN. I will send you the software. I am not distributing it regularly for legal reasons.
