Does anyone know if it is possible to add vignetting to a photo using GIMP 2?
I'd like to do it to this photo to try to draw you into the subject a bit more. Maybe make it more vintage (sorry, can't think of a better word) looking.

Any advice is appreciated!

Hi Ian!

Yes you can (if I understand it right!). It is possible to change the vignetting value through a slider in the Filters/Distort Filters/Lens Distortion menu.

Hope this what you mean.

Kind regards,

Thanks. It seemed that the only way to get vignette also distorted my image pretty severely. Is there another way that won't?
