    Remove border from a custom preset

    Ziji Man Level 1

      I created a custom preset in Lightroom. It has the same border in the preset as seen in the photo below.

       

      I want to keep the preset I created, however I definitely don't want the white border to be on all of my photos.

       

      How can I remove only the white border? I have searched and can't find any option to remove the white border. I have some photos I need to finish fast and this has put the brakes on everything. Please help.

       

      Thank you!!

          Check down at the bottom of the adjustments panel. Looks like the preset has Post-Crop Vignetting turned on. Click the little switch icon in the upper left corner of that section and you'll turn off vignetting.

              You're welcome. Hope your photo processing goes well for you.

               

              The Post-Crop Vignetting panel is worth some experimentation time. You can really achieve a wide range of effects by manipulating the sliders.

               

              Solid black or white borders come from Amounts of -100 or +100, and the rounded corners on the preset you showed, as well as the width of the 'border' come from the Midpoint and Roundness sliders. The feather at 0 is what made the edge sharp.

               

              In any case this adjustment is a way to get a simple border inside Lightroom without resorting to taking the image out to something that understands layers like Photoshop or other applications that let you stack a border on top an image layer.
