The webcam on your PC can do a lot more than just click the occasional selfie or chat on Skype.
Paired with the right software, you can use the humble webcam to take wide-angle selfies with your friends and family, or even use it for surveillance purpose.
Scene filters, face distortion lenses, emoticons, dynamic effects, and stickers are just a few of them. Well, in that case, how about face ‘Avatars’, AR stickers, and live animations to make your video feed look like a well-edited film? You Cam can also be synced with services like Skype and Yahoo Messenger, and also supports face login functionality for platforms like Facebook, Amazon, Twitter to name a few.
On the technical side, You Cam saves images in multiple formats (JPG, BMP, PNG) and is capable of recording videos in AVI and WMV (MP4 too, for systems with VGA cards) file types at resolutions ranging from 240p to Full HD.
A clean UI, which is far from the cluttered interface you’ll find in other webcam software, makes You Cam an obvious choice for beginners.
But that doesn’t mean the software is a barebones affair, instead, it offers a rich array of editing tools, filters, and effects whose diversity is impressive, to say the least.
However, different users utilize their webcams in different ways, some want fancy effects to spice up their video feed, while others want something that can just get the work done.
One can choose to save the clicked images either locally (only JPG format) or post them directly to social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter straight from the website.
When it comes to webcam software, slow load speed and camera lag are a common issue, but not for Photo Booth Pro.
