"Big News! Webshots is now Smile by Webshots"
Follow the instructions on ArchiveTeam Warrior to join in the fun using the warrior tool.
For manual archiving there is a script designed for Debian 6 and higher, but it should work on most distributions that use apt (such as Ubuntu), simply run the following as root:
wget http://cryto.net/projects/webshots/webshots_debian.sh chmod +x webshots_debian.sh ./webshots_debian.sh
in a terminal and enjoy (you may want to create a directory for this script first).
Want to talk about Warrior, or maybe the manual script isn't quite working right? Why not come check us out on IRC

There are separate sections for Professional Photos and Member Photos.
Pictures are displayed in Flash, with http://p.webshots.com/flash/simpleImageLoader.swf or http://p.webshots.com/flash/fullsizeimageloader/FullSizeImageLoader_v1.swf
Picture pages have urls of the form http://<channel>.webshots.com/photo/<photo id>, with channel one of entertainment, family, home-and-garden, news, outdoors, pets, rides, sports, travel etc. (full list)
On a picture page, e.g.,
the image url is stored in a params tag:
<param name="flashvars" value="src=http://image85.webshots.com/175/0/78/14/2248078140105543869vCJpvs_ph.jpg">
but there is also a normal img tag:
<img width="584" height="389" alt="" title="" src="http://image85.webshots.com/175/0/78/14/2248078140105543869vCJpvs_ph.jpg"/>
The fullsize link from the image page leads to
http://community.webshots.com/photo/fullsize/2248078140105543869vCJpvs (always community),
The url of a fullsize image can be derived from the smaller url: replace _ph with _fs, e.g.,
has a fullsize version at
Photo pages show an "other sizes" link: http://community.webshots.com/inlinePhoto?photoId=2411911460010333512&src=c&referPage=http%3A%2F%2Fgood-times.webshots.com%2Fphoto%2F2411911460010333512RyETli
