Adding Vignettes

Another technique that has become very popular recently is to add a vignette around the outside of your image. This forces the viewer’s eyes towards the interior of the image and away from the outside edges.

The simple way of adding a vignette is to:

1. Click the Effects panel and then move the Amount slider of the Post-Crop Vignetting tool to the left (somewhere between –15 and –30) to darken the corners of the frame.

2. Adjust the Midpoint slider to set how far into the image the vignette will appear.

3. Move the Roundness slider to the right to make the vignette rounder or to the left to square up the sides.

4. Adding a Feather of 50 is usually adequate, but you can set a higher number for a more feathered look or a lower number for a harder edge.
