    that is just vignetting, instead of darken the corners, you lighten them.
    IMHO, it is a well outdated technique though...

    One way is to do the opposite of adding a dark vignette. I believe this, from memory, is in Filters>Distort>Lens Correction .... In my CS4

    You can also do it this way if you want. Copy your background image, add a new layer, fill with white and reduce the opacity. Add a layer mask and using a black brush paint away the part you want clear.

    light vignetting is quite useful towards achieving a high key image particularly portraits; high key images are very much in "vogue" in some camera club circles.

    I wouldn't say camera clubs were particularly on the ball with latest trends, I wouldn't use them as a guidline!

    if a technique attracts any kind of derision there must be something very worthwhile and desirable in that technique; I really must again revisit high key and light vignetting.

    Why wouldn't you say that, Fishnet? My experience (admittedly of only one club) is quite the opposite - right at the leading edge of creative development. I struggle to keep up.

    must be the same club as Peter then, LF....LOL.
    In that case, perhaps you should try this glow technique...WinkSmileGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
