Vetting vignetting

We recently got some family portraits taken at JCPenney. I think they turned out very nicely. They had a bunch of different effects that they could apply. While we were at the studio, I really liked the way that the vignetting effect brought out our faces. However, after investigating the full set (we bought the digital images), I decided I didn’t like the vignetting, because it was actually making my face a bit dark in one shot. Then I decided to play around with vignetting a bit more. I was disappointed to see that Picasa does not support vignetting. Fortunately I found a handy gimp script to do the job. At first I tried using it with a rectangular selection. Then I tried an oval one which I like best. Here are the various pictures:
