"Honeycam is the best GIF Maker and Editor"

Overview

Honeycam GIF Maker is an animated GIF creator which can produce GIF, WebM or WebP files that can be viewed on web pages or inside video players.

The software can capture visual content directly from the desktop and then convert this into an easily transferable animated GIF file. The whole desktop or a specific area of the desktop can be selected and captured. This includes presentations, video clips and more. Anything that is being shown on the screen can be captured in this simple manner.

The GIF images can be created using the same HD quality and image depth that was present in the original version. The HD quality can be achieved without the need for large file sizes which is helpful when hosting the content online and paying for the bandwidth costs.

Both WebP and WebM image formats, developed by Google, can be used with the Honeycam GIF Maker.

Edit images, reverse the playback, crop the image, re-size it, add a watermark or transition effects between sections of the animation.

Share images online in Messenger apps, Twitter, Facebook or on image sharing hosts.

Installation

The installation completed without any issues.

There was no adware, toolbars, spyware or malware included in the setup package.

Interface

The interface is very self-explanatory. It has two navigation tabs at the top of the application window for Rec (for record) and Edit.

The Rec section includes all the options needed to capture part or all of the desktop in HD quality. There are frames per second capture rates, image sizes (from a preset list or custom selection), and a “Record” button.

The Edit section can display a captured video to be converted into a GIF, WebM or WebP file. The original image size and any reduced cropped size are shown at the top. The mouse can be used to select an area outline in red color for cropping. There are various options once cropped like the ability to save the change, reverse it, view it in a web browser, and more.
