Hints and Tips - Photography
A Vignette is an editing effect that we can use to highlight something within a photo - but you don't need to overdo it. Often we think of Vignetting as something negative that occurs when we have a lens hood on and darkness starts to appear around the edge of our photos. There are other reasons a vignette can occur as well such as various filters or the lens and how you have it zoomed in or out. But there are ways in which you can utilise a vignette to make your photograph a bit more appealing. Alternatively you can use Vignetting to improve your Photograph if you have some unwanted effects. There are some main terms used to describe lens distortion and they are as follows:
Vignetting causes the edges, especially the corners, of an image to be darker than the center. Use controls in the Lens Vignetting section of the Lens Corrections tab in Camera RAW to compensate for vignetting.

Hints & Tips
Did you know there is a super easy way to send a piece to a fellow deviant via note? Sending notes are great ways of getting in touch with deviants who may not be signed on at the same time as you and are more private than posting directly on someone's page. As long as sharing is enabled on a deviation, this tip can save you a little bit of time!
Check out the top right of this deviation page. See that "Note" button? Click it! This widget will pop up:
And there you go! The image is automatically inserted into a note. Just pick out the recipient, write up your message, and send it off! This feature is great for sending quick notes without having to leave the deviation page.

As always projecteducate is ever evolving and developing new ways to allow Deviants to get involved whilst not having to tackle the (sometimes daunting!) task of writing a full length article, or taking on a whole seven days of Education! Therefore the Handy Hints & Tips Blog Series has begun!
What's the Idea?
Some of us love reading long articles, but many of us prefer to be able to read something short, concise and to the point perhaps including an image to illustrate the point - but nothing more. So the idea is that members of the Community Volunteer team and of the wider deviantART Community (YOU!) can start blogging a handy hint or tip related to Art or deviantART, via our blog.
How can I get involved?
All you need to do is note the projecteducate group with your Hint or Tip! This is so that we can be sure we don't have any double-posting going on and we'll always work with you to adapt your idea if someone else has proposed
