Lens Vignette

Before After

Simulates vignettes created by different types of lenses. Darkening the edge of the frame helps keep the viewer's eye within the boundaries of the image and increases the sense of depth of the image. Use the on-image placement control to move the vignette off center, if desired.

Filter Settings Panel Description

Amount: Controls the strength of the vignette. Moving this slider to the left adds a darkening vignette to the borders of the image while moving this slider to the right adds a brightening vignette.
Circle/Rectangle: Controls the overall shape of the vignette between circular and rectangular.
Size: Adjusts the area of the image covered by the vignette.
