Vignette Effect for Your Images in AKVIS Programs


The Vignette effect lets darkening or lightening the edges of a picture that helps to draw your eye to the central part. It's perfect for creating retro styled images, especially vintage looking portraits. The effect allows you to change a mood or enhance a composition of your image. Vignetting is fabulously easy to implement with the AKVIS programs.

Vignette Effect


Adjust the parameters of the effect:


Dark/Light Edges (-100..100). The parameter sets the strength of darkening (at negative values) or lightening (at positive values) of the image edges.

Dark Edges Light Edges
Dark Edges (-100) Light Edges (100)

Size (1-100). The parameter changes the effect area.

Small Vignette Wide Vignette
Size = 50 Size = 85

Shape (100..100). The parameter affects rounding of the edges and changes the central part of the image from a rectangle (at negatives values) to a circle (at positive values).

Almost Rectangle Circle
Shape = -50 Shape = 50

Smooth Transition (0-100). The parameter adjusts the smoothness of the border between the vignette and the central part. Increasing the value increases the fading effect.
