    hello,

    I was wondering if someone could give me step by step of the process for adding a slight vignetting to a photo.

    thanks

    What software?

    Lets assume CS2.......

    Open Image
    Filter > Distort > Lens Correction
    Move the vignette slider.

    Another is to

    Open Image
    Press Ctrl J to copy the layer.

    Select the top layer (background copy)
    Draw the shape of the vignette using the eliptical marquee tool

    Go to Select>ModifyFeather and select an appropriate value (higher number for larger images)

    Press the delete key and then Ctrl D to deselect the selection.

    Change the blending mode to Multiply and reduce the opacity to suit. If the feather isn't strong enough press Ctrl+Alt+Z to trace steps back and feather more before deleting the centre part of the background copy layer.
