Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Lightening with a vignette, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects (2011).
When an image contains a vignette, a darkening of the edges, it's common to …want to apply some edge lightening to compensate for those dark edges. …Sometimes you can actually produce a nice effect to over compensate for any …vignetting, or to apply a lightening to the edges of a photo even if the original …image didn't show any vignetting at all. In this lesson I'll show you how I …approach this task. I'm going to apply a lightening vignette …as a Smart Filter. So the first thing I need to do is …convert my Background Image layer to a Smart Object.…
I'll make sure the Background Image layer is selected on the Layers panel and then, …choose Filter > Convert for Smart Filters from the menu. …Photoshop will ask me to confirm my decision. …I'll click OK and as you can see, my Background Image layer has now been …converted to a Smart Object. Now I can apply my filter. …I'll go ahead and choose Filter > Lens Correction from the menu and I'm going to …go directly to the Custom tab. I'll then apply a lightening vignette …
