I did this tutorial in Photoshop CS3 Extended which is why some of you may have problems. However, that doesn't mean this tutorial won't work in other versions of Photoshop. Just try it out.

Looking to try something different? Well you've come to the right place. There is this new method in photoshop called "vignetting". I will be using Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen for this tutorial. Here's the before:

Here's the after:


001.First off, open your photo.

002.Next, add a new layer.

003.Go Edit>Fill.

004.Choose "Black" from the drop-down menu as your use.

005.Now select your Rectangular Marquee Tool (M).

006.Make a sort of "border" in your picture.

007.Go Select>Modify>Feather.

008.Enter 55 as your feather radius.

009.Your picture should now look like this:

010.For the final step, just press backspace & ctrl+d & you have your effect done! ")

If you got lost or have any questions, comment the tutotial & I'll get back to you as soon as I can. :D
