How to make a vignette photo effect
The vignette effect is widely used in photography. What is it for? It helps people to focus on the center of the image and not be distracted by the edges or by irrelevant details. It does this by darkening the borders or lowering the saturation level. These kinds of shadowed borders can also make your photos look softer and more inviting.
Some camera lenses have built-in filters for vignettes, but you might want a better solution with more options. Try using Movavi Photo Editor to create a vignette photo! It is easy to use and takes just a few quick steps to add vignette effects to your photos. Download the program and follow the instructions below.
