this is the easiest tutorial ever in my blog. it contains only 6 steps to complete the whole tutorial
here we go!
Open a photo to edit.
Follow the steps below according to the version of Photoshop you're using:For Photoshop CS2 or newer :
- Choose Filter> Distort> Lens Correction.
- Inside the Lens Correction filter, adjust the settings in the Vignette section to create the vignette.
For Photoshop CS or older :
- Create a new layer and select the new layer.
- Use the Lasso tool and create an oval selection. It doesn't have to be perfect.
- Inverse the selection (Select> Inverse or Shift+Ctrl+I).
- Press Shift+Backspace to open the Fill tool. In the Fill tool, set the contents to Black and click OK.
- Deselect (Select> Deselect or Ctrl+D).
- Open the Gaussian Blur filter tool (Filter> Blur> Gaussian Blur). In the Gaussian Blur window, ensure that the Preview checkbox is checked and adjust the Radius to blur the edges so that a vignette is created.
- Reduce the opacity a little. An opacity around 75% should produce good results.
Inside the Channels pallet (Window> Channels), select the red channel.
With the red channel selected, use the Brightness/Contrast tool (Image> Adjustments> Brightness/Contrast) and increase the contrast. The higher you set the contrast, the stronger the color effect will be. I found that increasing the contrast by 50 produced the most realistic results.
Now select the green channel and use the Brightness/Contrast tool (Image> Adjustments> Brightness/Contrast) to increase the contrast by the same amount you did in the previous step.
Select back the RGB channel (CTRLl+~) to view the final results.
