What’s a vignette, you ask? It’s where you just darken the outside edge of a picture so that it stands out. It’s a very soft frame. Here is a recent flower photo I took:
- Open the photo and click the pencil to get into editing mode
- Tap the middle editing tool: adjustments
- From there, tap the down arrow to the right of the “Light” slider
- You will now see all sorts of adjustments that can be made to the lighting in this photo. Feel free to play with the exposure, highlights, shadows etc.
- Vignette is the last one. Drag the slider all the way to the right for a thick border, or not so far if you want it thinner. Then close the Light adjustments by tapping the up arrow at top right.
