Lightroom/Camera Raw: Off-Centre Vignettes

How can I create a vignette where the centre of the brightest part of the image is not in the centre of the frame?

The Radial Tool give you the ability to create and off center vignette. https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom/help/lightroom-radial-filter.html

They'd have to add this as a feature, sorta along the same lines as the adjustment brush where you click to center the vignette then adjust the parameters, click 'new' to add another and so on...

Perhaps the closets you can come today is to darken the entire image (drop Exposure or Brightness), then go into Adjustment Brush, make your brush really big with feather set to 100, Exposure or Brightness set to compensate for the earlier adjustment, and click once (without dragging) wherever you want the center to be.

Alternatively, brush over the whole image with a 100% (and negative exposure) and then use the "Eraser" brush to remove the effect where you need it (big eraser brush with large feather).

You can also paint the edges with exposure and/or brightness for custom vignetting.

Notes:
--------

Painting with negative exposure creates a "paint overlay" effect (knocks all tones down).

Painting with negative brightness creates a more "highlight priority" effect (knocks dark tones down more than light tones).

You can also play with contrast but it may be enough to just try to balance exposure and brightness.

Hint: Desaturate a smidge if necessary...

Consider adding off-center vignettes as an "Idea" since there is no automatic way of doing it in Lightroom now.

Roland S,

Was this really just a question?, or should it be a Feature-Request/"Idea"???

X & Y axis sliders for controlling the centre point of the vignette.
Post Crop Vignette is great now...but this is all that is missing I believe.

That's a reasonable mechanism, though I think it would be even better to just be able to click the desired center point right on the image.

I'd love to see post-crop vignettes handled as pins, so I could drop a couple of them down...

Feature Request: I would like to see a functionality as in Silver FX Pro: Just click in the image to define the centre of the vignette!

Can future versions of Lightroom allow for more options in the Vignette tools? Specifically I would like to be able to change the shape of vignettes (ie transform) and centering (off-centered axis) as well as have more options with the style of a vignette (focus, color, saturation, etc) It would also be nice to have a similar Vignetting tool in Photoshop to work on exiting images rather than having to re import an image to Lightroom just for a last minute Vignette

Please do a search for existing Ideas. Also, it's better to break out each 'Idea' as a separate topic for users to comment/vote ont. I've added your vote here for off center vignettes. Thanks.

Thank You for the direction Jeffrey, I did do a search but this topic was not one of the results found.
More importantly, it seems that I am not the only one with this idea, so Please pass this on to the development team. Perhaps it's not too late for the feature to show up in LR4 !!!!

Add rectangular and circular vector masks to Lightroom - a fast way to make non-centered vignettes.

I believe there should be ability to set the center of vignetting, because very often the main object isn't in the real center of the frame and a little shifting could be very useful while using vignetting

A tool to set the midpoint of the vignette would be a great enhancement in ACR.

Consider using radial gradient in Lr5.

This tool is already existing. You can do that with the radial filter.

In some ways, the radial gradient is inferior, because it lacks the intelligence of the highlight-priority & color-priority vignettes.

In some ways, radial gradient is superior, because all local adjustments can be employed.

You're not wrong :)
But the highlight-priority can be manually adjusted at least with the radial gradient...

My favorite tool for creating vignettes - the paint brush (YMMV).

Why don`t you use the new radial filter in ACR for off-center vignettes?

That's a cool and flexible way. But if I just want a fast way for a vignette with an arbitrary midpoint by mouse click is very fast.
