Hi, my name's Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media and today I'm gonna show you how to make a photo vignette. For this we're going to hop in to our photo editing software, lets take a look. Alright, so this is the photo I am going to use to show you how to create a vignette. So what we're gonna do is grab our Lasso Tool, ah the feather we'll go ahead and make that 100. Now all you're gonna have to do is simply lasso around and you can do this however precisely you want. Now what you're gonna do is go ahead and create a Curves layer and what we're gonna want to do is go ahead and invert the mask so the vignette takes place on the outside and now simply all you have to do is drop that down and from here if you don't like the way that is looking feel free to go ahead and re-drop down the vibrance, but in the mask here go ahead and hold option and drag your vignette up to replace the layer mask and that will just take away some of those tones that are brought in through the darkening and that's how you make a photo vignette. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
