Photoshop Tutorial: how to create an adjustable vignette

In For Photographers

Recently I found myself wanting to create an image in Photoshop that was as much about the heavy vignette surrounding it as it was about the image itself. I wanted to be able to work with a completely editable vignette rather than having to keep starting that layer from scratch every time I needed to tweak it, and realised I didn’t actually know how! So, this is a guide to creating an adjustable vignette in Photoshop just in case anyone else out there needs to do the same thing – or in case I forget how I did it in the future!
