    How can we get the vignetting effect intentionally without the assistance of PS?

    Example 1

    Example 2
    I'm not if he used PS for the effects in Example 2

    Put on a filter, step-down ring or lens hood that is the wrong size.

    danalec -

    if you have any circular rubber lens hoods - try one with a wide angle lens - or a zoom set to its widest angle. If the hood is the incorrect size, you should get vignetting in the finished product.

    It's a fun effect to play with..

    Just use PS :p It's easier to control the outcome to get exactly what you want.

    I have actually used black construction paper from an office supply store taped onto my existing hood for a makeshift sorta "vignette enhancer" in the past. The nice thing about that is you can vary the length and effect of it for almost free. You may need more than one piece though to make sure light isn't entering through the paper or you'll get wierd color casting (unless shooting BW which was when I did it about 14-15 years ago in High School photo 101)

    Otherwise I'd say PS it. Thats pretty much how I do all of mine now. Much more control albeit "unpure".

    Looks like burning to me...

    If it's not being burned in photoshop, could be when it's developed no?

    Make a new layer, ctrl-A (select all), select/modify/border, depends on your image size, for an 800x600 image I'd say around 50 pixels. Then feather the selection (ctrl+alt+d) by half the amount of your border and then fill it with black (alt+backspace). Voila. Adjust opacity as desired. Try changing the blending mode as well.

    Real vignettes look much better IMHO. The PS vignette is on par with the PS lens flare.
