    Hello!
    Do you know a good way to remove a vignette in photoshop? Say the background is pure white and the picture has a gray/black vignette at the four borders. Can you think of an action which could do it?
    Thanks for any comment!!

    If the vignette is covering a solid color/tone, then it should be easy to use the clone tool to copy over the vignette.

    You might also be able to just crop the image closer, thus getting rid of the corners.

    There is actually a tool in Photoshop to do this. It's under distort>lens distortion.

    I tried the Lens Distortion tool, but it didn't help too much, because not all four borders are equally darkened. So some borders remain dark and other are OK, or some borders are to whitened and the other are OK... I will try the crop feature in the future, so taking bigger pictures "in the field" and then crop them to be nice! If anyone has other options, leave comments!
    Thanks!!
