Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Correcting vignetting, part of Restoring Photos with Photoshop CS6.
As much as I might like a vignette effect for certain images, I actually add it as …a creative effect sometimes, as a matter-of-fact, generally speaking, with …older images that show a vignetting, a darkening of the corners, I prefer to …remove that effect. You can see in this image, the vignetting …is rather obvious, especially up in the sky, where the sky is relatively bright. …But in the corners, it appears quite dark. …It's not quite as evident down below, because there's more going on, and …there's some shadows on the ground here, for example. …And so, it's not as obvious at the bottom of the image, but it's still there.…
And I'd like to even out the overall tones for the photo. …In most cases, I'll use the lens correction filter in order to brighten …the corners and the edges to remove a vignetting effect. …Because that's actually going to be changing pixel values in the image. …And I do need to work directly on pixels when I'm working with the lens correction filter. …I'll start off by making a copy of my background image layer. …
