Why does PSE11 vignette command crop image?

Dec 16, 2012 1:57 PM

Just upgraded from PSE9 to PSE11 and find that when I use Filter - Correction Camera Distortion - Vignette to add a vignette effect to an image, the command also slightly crops the image. This is a problem because I often like to erase part of the vignette, usually to keep a face bright. You can't do that with a cropped image as partial erasing leaves a distorted version of the image. This was never a problem with PSE9. Am I doing something wrong? How do I correct it? Thanks.

    It doesn't do this for me. I would try resetting the prefs. Go to Editor preferences>general, click this button and restart PSE and see if it makes any difference:

    Just out of curiosity, does the same thing happen if you use the Vignette in Guided Edit?

    No, that shouldn't matter. Does this happen for all file formats and also if you open an image from the desktop?

    Try this. Restart bridge while holding command+shift+option and, in the window that opens, turn on all the checkboxes. (You'll need to set up your workspaces again after doing this.)

    Hi,

     

    Try after manually deleting Correct camera Distortion Plugin Preference located at

    C:\Users\[user]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Plugins\Adobe Lens Correction CS5\Elements.

     

    This may solves your problem.

     

    It may possible since your image open in the correct camera distortion window with different zoom level causes you to look like false crop result

    can you please post a before and after image with the vignette? Is the cropping done from all the sides?

    You will need to come to the forum's web page. Can't do it via email. Use the camera icon above the message composition area to upload images:

    Hi,

     

    yeah, it seems to be cropped.

     

    Correcting 1st reply (-appdata).

     

     

    Since your plateform is Mac OS

     

     

    1)Finder "Go" menu >> Go to Folder (command+shift+g)

    2)type ~/Library

    3)Go to Preferences >> Adobe >> Plugins>> Adobe Lens Correction CS5\Elements.

    4)Delete this Preference file manually

    5)Restart the application.

    It could be that this Maya is quite cute for PSE to do a perfect job on her.

    Is that a camera raw image?

     

    I wonder if for some reason correct camera distortion is automatically applying corrections

    with Auto Geometric Distortion Correction with Auto Image Scaling applied?

    (it would have to be reading the camera profile data base for that to happen)

     

    If you were to open the original image and save it as a jpeg with File>Save for Web and then open the saved jpeg

    and use the correct camera distortion filter, do you see any difference?

    Then again, that wouldn't explain why your seeing it with guided edit, since as far as i know it doesn't use correct camera distortion for that effect.

    Was the orginal image a camera raw file before saving it as a psd?

     

    I guess you have bridge cs4 and did you run the orginal camera raw file (if it was orginally a camera raw file) through the bridge version of camera raw?

    Well, that was certainly a creative response. Here's what I see after snitching your image, adding an empty adjustment layer (so I'd have a layered file), saving as psd and running CCD vignetting on the psd (click for larger view):

    No, I was just pointing out that it's not getting cropped on my machine. Sorry it wasn't clear. I had to run the vignette on the background layer--you can't use that filter on an adjustment layer.

    It shouldn't, but it wouldn't harm anything to delete what you find there, as long as you mean the prefs folder in your user library, not the one at the top level of your hard drive.
