Hi everyone. One of the things that just about all of my photos get is a vignette to darken the edges. It really helps bring in focus on your photos, and makes a great finishing touch. It’s also perfect for a preset because it’s something that’s very repeatable, and the settings stay the same (or almost the same) for each time I use it.
You’ll see 3 different versions here – Light, Medium, and Strong. Depending on the photo and how dark the edges already are, I usually use the Light or Medium version. But feel free to go with the Strong one if your photo can take it without starting to look fake around the edges.
- The preset downloads for Lightroom 4 are below (I made them for LR4. You can try them in LR3 but they’re tuned for LR4 specifically):

Hope you enjoy. Have a good one!
