Six Ways to Create ANY Kind of a Vignette in Photoshop

In this fun tutorial I will show you six different ways how to create any kind of vignette in Photoshop. Vignette is a light fall off at the periphery compared to the image center. It is reduction of an image’s brightness or saturation at the periphery compared to the image center. Vignette can be naturally caused by the optical design of lenses or image sensor, third party accessories such as filters and extended hoods, or it can be added in a post production. Adding a vignette in post production in Photoshop or Lightroom, you can lead a spectator eye away from the corners of the frame, towards the center of the image. I will not provide a tutorial files because you can literally practice on any photo you want. Have fun!
