View Full Version : Help: How to make a photo vignette?

I'd like to import a photo, then cut out, say, an oval bit of it, and feather the edges like a photo vignette.

Is there a good way to do that inside ArtRage (3 Pro)? I could do it in some other tool and import that but would like to do all in AR if possible.

Thanks,

Yes, you can do this with the new selection tool. Just switch to the selection tool, make an ellipse, and cut it out (Edit -> Cut works). If you set feather to something above 0% it will feather at the edge.

You can also use the eraser tool or any other tool to paint over the photo after making the selection. This way you can make the result a little less regular.

Thanks Danny ... I'm just finding my way around for this kind of thing and these ideas, though simple, will save me a bunch of time messing about.

For example, I didn't know that the selection tool had feathering. Neat!

Thanks again,
