Can any one tell me how I can do the above in Elements? I'm looking for a soft blur vignette - hope I've spelt that right - lol!!

In Elements 6, go to Filter and Camera Correction. Play about with that. (I think that is right, I am not in front of PS at the mo!)
It's only version 3 I've got, can't seem to see it in there.
I'm not on here much any more but i hope I can help.
I make a selection using the marquee tools(either rectangular or eliptical)
Then inverse it in the 'select' section.
Feather it (also in the select menu) to between 100 - 150 pxles.
You can then play around with the blurring using the gaussian blur in the filter gallery or I darken the selection with the levels and brightness/contrast sliders.
Then 'deselect' and you're done!
I've done a couple in my pf ( to the extreme on those!)
Hope all is well up north of the border.
Hiya Matt, thanks for the info! I can get up to the feather selection but when I go into blurring nothing happens, I'm a bit thick when it comes to things like this, is there something I'm missing?
Hope you are all well!
Try darkening the selection to see if all is well. If it is, it should blur too. It can be a bit tricky to see sometimes....do it to 100% then work backwards until you've got the desired effect.
I shall wait to see what you come up with.......!
Thanks Matt it's kinda working, I've got the darken bit and it looks a bit blurred so maybe I'll have a play around.
