Vignettes in Photoshop and ACR + Lightroom

Vignettes are extremely powerful tools for grabbing your viewer’s attention.  They can very quickly make an ordinary photo look incredible!  But, there are some problems with traditional vignettes.

1.  They can look too contrived if not blended well.

2.  Traditional ACR or Lightroom vignettes don’t give you a whole lot of control.

3.  Sometimes it just looks like a giant ring around your photo.

 

 

To help you make better vignette I have two videos for you today. 

The first one will help you make better Vignettes in Photoshop using a simple 3 step formula.   

The second one will show you how to make a vignette in Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom without ever touching the vignette tools! 

You are going to love both methods!

f.64 Academy and f.64 Elite are the brainchildren of Blake Rudis. While he is a landscape photographer he is most passionate about post-processing images in Photoshop and mentoring others.

For Blake, it is less about the art and more about the process. He dives deep into difficult topics and makes them easy to understand through his outside the box thinking.
