    Brilliant! I love rounded corners sometimes, and this is so darn easy when compared to Photoshop method.

    You are brilliant! That is so cool. I wish the background was black. My BG is black on my blog. That is so neat though!

    Thanks Jodi! Can you make rounded corners in PS CS4?

      Yes – you can. This way is just way easier. With CS4 it is more complex – and more time consuming.

    @michelle chandler – you can make the background black, just put the amount slider at -100 instead of 100.

    so, i was looking forward to putting this to use – but then i noticed that i do not have the “post crop” in my vignettes location like you show on this link. am i missing something?? help!

      Do you have LR 1 or 2? I use 2. I use to have 1 but it is no longer on my computer – so I cannot tell if it would work on that.

    There’s no post-crop vignette in LR 1.

    Can you define the color of the edges, other than black or white?

    Yes, wondering if I can make the corners transparent so I can overlap photos in a collage. Is this possible in Lightroom 3?

    Is there a way to make this kind of template in the print module vs. doing it to each photo in develop?
