Light leaks were once an unwanted flaw when shooting with low quality analogue cameras, but now the colourful diffusions are a popular addition to modern digital photos to give them a nostalgic, retro look. My free set of light leak photo overlays contains 15 high-resolution 3000x2000px, 300ppi graphics that you can paste over your photograph using any image editing software that supports blending modes. By changing the layer to Screen, the black background is rendered transparent to enhance your image with colourful highlights.
This collection of free light leak graphics contains a variety of colourful images, including warm yellow-orange flares, vivid red burns, and vibrant blue flashes. Apply a single light leak, or layer up several graphics to either add a subtle distortion to the edge of your picture, or a larger haze that brightens a portion of the photograph.
