Chapter 3. Raw Hide: Mastering Camera Ra... > Fixing (or Creating) Edge Vignetting - Pg. 83

The Photoshop CS2 Book for Digital Photographers Step Three: Now for the opposite: adding vignetting to focus attention (by the way, in the Photographic Special Effects chapter, I also show you how to get the same effect outside of Camera Raw). This time, in the Vignetting section, drag the Amount slider to the left, and as you drag you'll start to see vignetting appear in the cor- ners of your photo.

That's it--how to get rid of 'em and how to add 'em. Two for the price of one! Mastering Camera Raw Chapter 3 83
