Apply a vignette

The Vignette adjustment gradually darkens or lightens the outer edges of a photo, drawing attention to the center.


Apply a vignette to an image

  1. Do one of the following:

    • Choose Format > Color Adjustments > Vignette (from the Format menu at the top of your screen).
    • In the Tools sidebar, click and turn on Vignette or add it from the Customize menu at the bottom of the Color Adjustments pane.
  2. Customize the adjustment:

    • Move the Exposure slider to apply an exposure-based vignette to the image. Negative exposure values will brighten the edges of the image and positive ones will make them darker. Hold down the Option ⌥ key before dragging if you’d like to extend the range of the slider beyond 100%. You can also enter a percentage value from –200% to 200%.
    • Move the Black Point slider to apply a black point-based vignette to the image. Negative black point values will brighten the edges of the image and positive ones will make them darker. Hold down the Option ⌥ key before dragging if you’d like to extend the range of the slider beyond 100%. You can also enter a percentage value from –200% to 200%.
    • Move the Softness slider to adjust how gradually the vignette should be applied to the image.

Show Original: Click the Show Original button or press Control ⌃ + M on your keyboard to see what the image looks like without any color adjustments.

To reset all Color Adjustments, click Reset at the bottom of the Color Adjustments pane.
