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.
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 (-100)||Light Edges (100)|
Size (1-100). The parameter changes the effect area.
|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).
|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.
|Smooth Transition = 0||Smooth Transition = 10|
Position. Move the white marker to shift the vignette. You can see the current coordinates of the center in the X and Y fields.
