    What I do is to:
    • Make a circular selection of the image portion I want to retain
    • Select->Inverse
    • Select->Feather
    • Fill the selection region with black (or whatever colour you want).

    Two ways to do:

    1. Use 'Burn tool' and manually burn-in the edge of your image. This is the easiest method, but the vignet may not be distributed evenly, depend on your artistic hand.

    or

    2. - Create a new layer.
    - Use 'eliptical marquee tool' on that layer to create an elliptical selection, then inverse the selection.
    - Paint it with black color using 'Paint bucket tool'
    - Deselect, so that the selection marquee disappear.
    - Use blur filter to this layer, choose either one: Gaussian blur or Radial blur. Adjust the blur to your taste.
    - Adjust layer blending option opacity, this will determine the amount of vignetting effect.
    - Flatten the image.

    Hi tsdh & Midnight, thank you very much. The second option outlined by tsdh is what I am looking for i.e. evenly distributed soft vignetting edge. It works.

    I added one more step before flattening the layers, i.e use the eraser tool to make the center portion of the image sharper.

    Again, thanks guys!

    Best regards,

    Rty
