Lightroom: Vignetting in Lens Corrections


Post 26
Series: Introduction to Adobe Lightroom®

Movie Day

Today we are trying some different instruction: We will see a very short movie. I find pictures and movies helpful for different things, and some times I have a preference depending on my needs. Most important to me when I’m learning something is that I get my information quickly and easily. Today’s few-second-long movie clip should help us do just that.

Sweet Little Vignette

Lens Vignetting(pronounced vin-yet) is where a dark edge appears on your image.  This “light falloff” occurs commonly in photography. To learn more about vignetting, what it is, what causes it, what it looks like in different lenses, and when and how to use it artificially, there is a great article at http://photographylife.com/what-is-vignetting.

Under Lens Corrections, you have the option to use the Lens Vignettingtool. This is quick add-or-remove access to a vignette. Use this tool to correct and compensate for your lens vignette, or add the vignette for image effect. Adjust the Midpoint to take the vignette closer to the center (-) or futher away from the center (+).

Penny For Your Thoughts?
What is your preference? Do you like written instructions with images like past posts? Maybe movie demos are your thing, or movies with instructions via sound? Or a mix? Would be great to hear back from you!

Another Summer Movie Day

Horay! I like movies.

Last post we covered a quick vignette tool in the Lens Corrections section. Today we dive in to even more you can do with vignetting.

Which One Which One

Want more options for your vignettes? Close Lens Corrections and go down to Effects. Click on the arrow next to Effectsto bring up Post-Crop Vignetting. Chose High Priority, Color Priority or Paint Overlay. Each of these will give your image a different type of vignette.



Getting In To It

Now use the slider to determine the Amountof white or black to apply to the edge of your image. Change the Midpoint for vignette thickness. Roundness determines how wide or narrow the shape of your vignette will be. Featherchanges smoothness or abruptness of the edge of the vignette. You can also add Highlights or shadows within the vignette section of your image.
