    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?

    • admin on May 26, 2009 at 11:53 am

      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!

    • admin on June 9, 2009 at 8:39 am

      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.

  17. beechlights on July 8, 2009 at 5:04 pm

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

  18. Terrance on August 20, 2010 at 11:50 pm

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

  19. DK on September 29, 2010 at 11:54 am

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

  20. Kath on October 14, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Thanks so much for this quick tip!

  21. Angela Boone on November 24, 2013 at 10:05 pm

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