I am new to the digital world… I am using Photoshop CS and need some help… I would like to add a vignette or blur around just the outside of the image… can someone walk me through this? Thank you.

There are a couple of different ways. One is to use one of the "actions" that is loaded in the pallette (I anchor mine on the right side and it is usually next to the "History" pallette). With the photo open, you click on the action pallette, scroll down to the vignette, click on it and then click on the green right-facing arrow. Stand back and watch it work.
The other way is: go to Layers>duplicate layer, then select the elliptical marquee tool (it is under the dotted square tool in the upper left). In the top toolbar, select the "feather" option and type in 30 or 40. Drag out the marquee tool over the layer...after you release the mouse button, you can click in the middle and move it around. Click on Select>inverse. Click on Image>adjustments>brightness-contrast and move the brightness slider to the left. Click on Filters>blur>gaussian blur and adjust to taste. Don't forget to flatten the image by going to Layers>flatten image. Save under a different name so you don't overwrite the original. There are many other ways to do this...these are just two. Arkie

I just ran into the same problem. I solved it by using the elliptical marquee tool to select my general vignetting area, copied it and pasted it into a new document. I then adjusted the pasted area with feathering to taste. Took all of 30 seconds, including saving the new doc.
