    I've been just using linear gradiants and doing the corners, is there an easier way of doing it?

    may not be easier ways, but there are certainly better ways. I'm not sure if I want to post them though, someone might steals my secrets! :run:

    good boy!

    Here's something you may want to try:

    - Duplicate your Background layer
    - Desaturate it (you'll have to experiment with this for the particular image you're working on, I'll explain in a minute)
    - Set layer Blending Mode to Multiply
    - Add a Layer Mask > Show All
    - Use marquee/feather selection to select areas you don't want exposed and fill them on the layer mask to hide, or use brush tools. (obviously you can do this in reverse with a Hide all layer mask, then paint in your vignette)
    - Adjust the vignette layer transparency to adjust the amount of vignette
    - Fin!

    It non destructable and adjustable ftmfw. This is also similar to how I burn and dodge without using burn and dodge tools. The point of desaturating the vignette layer is so that you are emulating neutral density. Without desaturating it and setting the layer to multiply you can alter the color balance, which can be bad with some images. Sometimes it's not noticeable, so that's why I say to experiment with it. You can of course partially desatureate it in the Hue/Saturation dialog too.

    OMG, now you know a secret! :noes:
