CyberLink YouCam 6 Deluxe bundles Fun Webcam, Creative Camera App, Smart Work, and Easy Organization features into an all-in-one Webcam and camera utility. It edits photos and videos, adds special effects and filtering, creates video presentations with narration and desktop animation, and organizes videos and photos. Recent updates include HDR and Panorama photos and touch-friendly editing and effects. YouCam 6 Deluxe's free 30-day trial disables some filters and other features.
All-in-one: YouCam 6 Deluxe bundles a lot into one program, including fun-oriented filters and effects and other features that are all business.
Calendar view: The Calendar view organizes and displays your digital media by timestamp. That means you can see at a glance when your photos were taken.
Who's the fairest: YouCam Mirror is an interesting extra that turns your Webcam and screen into a high-definition mirror.
Big download: CyberLink YouCam 6 Deluxe is a huge program with a substantial download and fairly complicated setup process.
Not cheap: CyberLink YouCam 6 Deluxe hardly seems overpriced, but other tools do a lot of what it does for free, though the 30-day trial and frequent discounts keep YouCam competitive.
Pop-ups: Let's just say we had plenty of opportunities to buy the full version of YouCam 6 Deluxe during our trial period with the numerous pop-up ads.
CyberLink YouCam 6 Deluxe is easy to use and does just about everything you need a Webcam utility to do. You certainly get what you pay for with YouCam, though some capable freeware packages give it a run for the money.
