This review applies to version 6.0. The latest version of this software will soon be reviewed by our informers.

CyberLink YouCam pushes the webcam on your PC or your tablet camera to a higher level. Now you can take snapshots of yourself, your family and friends, and of the places you visit and enhance them in a snap without leaving YouCam. The program comes with a wide range of effects, filters, templates, and enhancing tools to help you give them a funny, artistic or sophisticated touch.

The new version 6 of this excellent tool comes with a long list of new features and enhancements, such as the Burst mode to capture up to 10 pictures with one click, the possibility of creating panoramic pictures and HDR photos, a new set of photo frames, new paint tools to give your pictures that creative touch, photo cropping and rotation, or one-click photo presets. Besides, you can now install YouCam on your tablet PC and make the most of its touch-screen support. All these new features join the existing ones to further increase the program’s impressive functionality.

Actually, YouCam counted already with a wide array of photo editing tools that exceed in many cases those provided by the average photo editor. You can add to your snapshots and videos funny and original effects (such as disguises, emoticons, “magic particles”, etc.) to make them stand out from the massive amount of images and videos we share every day. As the program is fully compatible with Yahoo! Messenger and Skype (among other messaging tools), you can chat your images away without leaving YouCam. You can also enhance and improve the quality of your images by making use of the various retouching and editing features provided. You can also add your own drawings to your shots and try as many one-click effects as you wish, until you find the one that does turn your picture into a small work of art or a funny greeting card.

Taking snapshots of whatever happens in front of your webcam is but the tip of the iceberg. Actually, you can also record video in HD quality using YouCam, and share your webcasts or video chats easily with your business partners or friends. You can also produce creative presentations using PowerPoint slides, and add your own drawings and record your mouse movements. To top it all off, you can even use this tool to log on to your computer using face recognition technology, or even as a security surveillance camera!

CyberLink YouCam certainly adds a new dimension to the way you normally used your webcam or tablet camera. Now you can turn those pictures and videos into something more than a hasty, low-quality photo or video of yourself – YouCam will surely surprise you with the amazing variety of effects and enhancing features that it offers.
