Vignettes Can Highlight the Message of Photos
Add Special Effects: Faded-Edge and Complex Vignettes
Custom vignettes provide many different effects The dark and light elliptical vignettes, shown on page 1, represent the most common vignettes used by today's photo editors. On this page, 10 unique vignettes are displayed: faded-edge vignettes (two rectangular and two elliptical), a heart-shaped vignette, a dark-sided vignette, a Lomographic vignette, a color-fade vignette, and a pair of complex, multifade vignettes.
Below, Warren presents a collection of his recent custom vignettes. See how and where each vignette's edges fade into the background, drawing attention to and highlighting the subject of the artwork, portrait, or photograph. See a variety of his dark and light vignette examples on page 1 and page 2.

Dark-Sided VignetteWhen a dark-sided vignette with faded edges is added to a photo, it adds depth, as though both sides curl back.
Lomographic VignetteLomographic vignette: When a lomographic vignette is added to a photo, features are enhanced with high contrast and oversaturated colors; the vignette is made with an undefined shape.
Color-Fade VignetteColor-fade vignette: A semitransparent complementary color reveals a little of the background behind a colored, off-center, faded-edge vignette.
