Google Photos Quick Tip: Vignette to Frame your Photos

What's a vignette, you ask? It's where you just darken the outside edge of a picture so that it stands out. It's a very soft frame. Here is a recent flower photo I took:

And, here's the same photo with a vignette applied.

It's super simple, and all with features built in to Google Photos. This works on all 3 platforms, Apple iOS, Android, and Web.
  • Open the photo and click the pencil to get into editing mode
  • Tap the middle editing tool: adjustments 
  • From there, tap the down arrow to the right of the "Light" slider
  • You will now see all sorts of adjustments that can be made to the lighting in this photo. Feel free to play with the exposure, highlights, shadows etc.
  • Vignette is the last one. Drag the slider all the way to the right for a thick border, or not so far if you want it thinner. Then close the Light adjustments by tapping the up arrow at top right.
  • Save

  1. Would've been great to have the option to edit the center position of the vignette

  3. You should be pissed off about that. We now have been utilizing Microsoft Workplace for very long time. Why not convert the PDF information to editable Phrase doc? Modifying in Phrase doc won't be issues in any respect. If you want to learn more about this topic please visit https://onlineconvertfree.com/
