Free Lightroom 4 Presets – Vignettes and Edge Darkening
Hi everyone. One of the things that just about all of my photos get is a vignette to darken the edges. It really helps bring in focus on your photos, and makes a great finishing touch. It’s also perfect for a preset because it’s something that’s very repeatable, and the settings stay the same (or almost the same) for each time I use it.
You’ll see 3 different versions here – Light, Medium, and Strong. Depending on the photo and how dark the edges already are, I usually use the Light or Medium version. But feel free to go with the Strong one if your photo can take it without starting to look fake around the edges.
- The preset downloads for Lightroom 4 are below (I made them for LR4. You can try them in LR3 but they’re tuned for LR4 specifically):

Hope you enjoy. Have a good one!

Great presets! Thanks. Works fine on LR5 as well. I’m sharring my free presets too. My website with Lightroom presets: Lightroom.ee
[…] Delnea’s Backlight Horizontal Left preset was applied to light up the flowers and last free Matt Kloskowski’s Vignette (Strong) was applied. The image was now ready for Photoshop where Nik Viveza 2 was opened and control points […]
gLynda, they worked for me. I’m on a mac though so maybe that’s not helpful.
This is a great post. I downloaded your vignette preset and will get ALOT of use out of it. I’ll add it to the list of all the great sources for presets out there. I made a post of them here; http://wp.me/P2ynGJ-7N
Am I crazy … I can download Photoshop brush files that are zipped from the internet and using the “Extract” unzip them and use them. When I try it with any of the preset files from here all I get is the message that says the Zipped file is empty? There doesn’t seem to be any way to unzip them. Are they only for a Mac? I’m using Windows 7. I tried several of the preset files here … no avail? Any suggestions or is it just the “wizard” part of me making it not work? Thanks.
I am having the same prob.. I was able to get a few off another site but these for some reason I can ‘t..
Hey Matt – what are those “Sports Game Day” ones?
Are those sharable – or something you want to hold on to?
I love all the ones you share and thanks for the great blog!
