Webshots Launches Free Unlimited Photo Uploads at AllYouCanUpload.com

SAN FRANCISCO, (May 23, 2006) Webshots (www.webshots.com), a leading photo-sharing community and a property of CNET Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:CNET www.cnetnetworks.com), today launched AllYouCanUpload.com (www.AllYouCanUpload.com), a service that provides free unlimited photo uploading and hosting without the need for registration. AllYouCanUpload.com leverages the technology infrastructure of Webshots, one of the internet's largest photo sharing communities.

Digital camera users are increasingly seeing the value in hosting images online for free. According to the Digital Image Marketing Association, the number of US households storing images online tripled between 2004 and 2005, with only one percent of digital camera owners paying a fee for hosting.

Purpose-built for this changing Internet landscape, AllYouCanUpload.com lets users upload up to 10 images at a time with no limits on size of photos, and automatically generates codes to display images that can be pasted into popular social networking, blog and auction sites.

AllYouCanUpload.com is designed for people seeking a quick, easy, one-click solution for hosting images. Users interested in a more robust experience, including archiving photos for future use, have the option of registering for a free Webshots.com account. Webshots members can save and categorize photos, as well as interact with more than 19 million unique users1 on one of the internet's most active photo sharing communities with tools such as message boards, tracking favorite users and more.

"Webshots understands the variable needs of photo uploaders and is providing AllYouCanUpload.com as an answer to those seeking a tool for fast, easy, free uploads" said James Park, Director, Product Development, Webshots. "Users can enjoy a variety of services leveraging the strength of the Webshots infrastructure; from instant, free uploads at AllYouCanUpload.com, to free member pages, album storage and networking tools with a free Webshots membership, to premium services."
