I've been just using linear gradiants and doing the corners, is there an easier way of doing it?
may not be easier ways, but there are certainly better ways. I'm not sure if I want to post them though, someone might steals my secrets!
This is the way I do it:
Theres a lot of way but I've stuck with that one...obviously dont do it as much as the tutorial, that shit looks retarded
Thank ya sir!
I just added a layer so it didnt destroy the original layer
Using the method 240 posted:
Here's something you may want to try:
- Duplicate your Background layer
- Desaturate it (you'll have to experiment with this for the particular image you're working on, I'll explain in a minute)
- Set layer Blending Mode to Multiply
- Add a Layer Mask > Show All
- Use marquee/feather selection to select areas you don't want exposed and fill them on the layer mask to hide, or use brush tools. (obviously you can do this in reverse with a Hide all layer mask, then paint in your vignette)
- Adjust the vignette layer transparency to adjust the amount of vignette
It non destructable and adjustable ftmfw. This is also similar to how I burn and dodge without using burn and dodge tools. The point of desaturating the vignette layer is so that you are emulating neutral density. Without desaturating it and setting the layer to multiply you can alter the color balance, which can be bad with some images. Sometimes it's not noticeable, so that's why I say to experiment with it. You can of course partially desatureate it in the Hue/Saturation dialog too.
OMG, now you know a secret!
Or, you can get lightroom
filter > lens correction > HOLLA
or do it in ACR
Thank ya! I figured there had to be a way to do it in PS
