Vignette Using Vector Mask

Here is the video tutorial. By no means are you restricted to creating a design like I did in the baby's picture. All I want to see is your use of vector mask and the vignette effect. Use your creativity and do it in any way you wish. You can use text or not use text. It's up to you.


In the video tutorial, I demonstrate two skills — vector mask and vignette.

  • A vector maskĀ is a path that clips out part of the contents of the layer.
  • A vignette is the artistic darkening of the edges of a photo to give the subject more focus. The darkening can be ever so slight, or it can be darker, as shown below.



Store your design in the Expressions Repository Assignment Dropbox so that you'll be ready to include it in your portfolio in April.
