    Adding a vignette

    I did try and google for this, not much luck.
    What is the best way to add a vignette effect to a picture in the DR, I assume this can be done, it might seem obvious but I'm not sure of the best way, do I burn the edges with the neg still in there or do I just use plain light?

    Cut a hole in some card and use it part way between lens & paper. That gives a vignette to white.

    To do the reverse attach the cut out bit to some thin wire use this again mid way and burn in the edges, may be better to remove the negative.

    It may help to create a saw-tooth effect at the edges of the hole (and the cut out part), but do it uniformly.

    Interesting image, Whiteymorange.

    I would personally try the saw-tooth effect, that should work pretty good.

    For darkening, use the negative (the "hole")
    BTW, the longer and deeper the sawtooth, the easier it will be to keep the edges smooth and gradual.
