In this tutorial we will be applying a nice black frame, a vignette, and a customizable caption to a photograph in the blink of an eye with an action! If you have never used actions before this is a perfect place to start! If you have used actions before you will still enjoy it! Enjoy saving time in Photoshop!
Here is a great little effect that adds a whole lot of "mood" to an image by softening and increasing contrast and also features a vignette around the focal point of your choosing. The beauty of this technique is that by using adjustment layers we have full control over the final effect's strength and color. This one is a great tip for Photographers of any type.
