Working at a web design company people often ask me if I know any tricks to jazz up a photo. One quick and easy trick is to add a vignette effect to your photo using Photoshop. Vignetting is darkening the edges of a photo in order to draw the viewer’s eye to the center of the photo. It’s also a nice way to give your photo a cool vintage look. This is a commonly used trick in professional photography and advertising. Once you have a sense of what vignetting is, you will probably notice that you see it all the time.
In order to do this tutorial you will need a copy of Photoshop. If you don’t have Photoshop, try downloading a free trail at Adobe.com. Adobe allows you to download a free try version of Photoshop for thirty days.
