Image Light Leaks Vol. 3 is a massive collection of 162 4K real light leak images, totaling over 540MB, focused on capturing edge burns. These light leak overlays have been specifically designed to frame subjects with by over-exposing frame edges. Light leaks occur when stray light leaks into the camera and accidentally exposes film revealing colorful effects. Although originally considered an undesirable defect, light leaks are common in the lomography movement and have since become a contemporary creative aesthetic used in photography and film.

Image Light Leaks Vol. 3 has been specifically developed for professional 3D artists, digital artists, designers and photographers. Unlike most collections circulating the internet with only 10 to 20 overlays, Vol. 3 boasts an impressive 162 overlays, all shot at a whopping resolution of 4K in a controlled environment, complete with real grain. Grain is a critical aspect of Light Leaks that significantly contributes to the overall natural look. Most existing light leak collections have been digitally generated lacking true optical aberrations that contribute to an authentic low-fidelity effect. This collection focuses on color feedback captured by stray light leaking through various types of lenses. These overlays are somewhat comparable to Instagram filters but in high resolution and with real film grain.

As a matter of fact, many of the creative projects found on this website have been produced using light leaks as this is part of a typical professional post-production workflow. While using motion clips for movies is great, sometimes still images are needed in order to work directly in Photoshop for style frames, mock-ups, photo retouching, design & illustration, etc. Additionally, it’s not a good idea to rip still images from motion clips as they have far greater compression levels than still images specifically prepared for these uses, such as Image Light Leaks Vol 3.

Light Leaks are indispensable for adding a level of realism to 3D renders. software_imagelightleaks_vol3_example02

Light Leaks help provide that cinematic look in one easy step. They can be used in a variety of different ways resulting in non-destructive application – please see the documentation section for more information on their use. They are compatible with any digital imaging software such as Photoshop, Affinity Photo, GIMP, Sketch, Pixelmator, Pixlr, Acorn, Corel PaintShop Pro, Paint.net, etc. If your package can loads JPG’s, you can use Image Light Leaks Vol. 3.

Light Leaks help improve or reduce focus on your subject. Your image will tell a different story depending on how and where you place your overlays. Use additive, overlay or subtractive modes for truly unique results. Additionally, light leaks can help perfect 3D renders feel more natural.

Image Light Leaks Vol. 3 features overlays of different color palettes so as to compliment just about any shot. Combine similar colors to maintain a consistent palette or composite opposing colors for a dramatic impact. Alternately, the overlays can be easily modified so as to compliment any image.

Grain matters! The size, intensity and distribution of camera grain is a crucial part of Light Leaks responsible for much of its aesthetic. Additionally, grain helps mask limited color palettes often seen in today’s compressed digital media with limited color palettes where banding occurs.

Image Light Leaks Vol. 3 has been shot at a whopping 4K resolution! Each overlay boasts an impressive resolution of 4080 x 2720 pixels, in the industry-standardized JPG format, thus meeting today’s rapidly-evolving demand for ultra-high resolution 4K imaging.

Using light leaks as overlays is easy! The most common method of using overlays in a non-destructive manner is to place them in a separate layer above the source image using a specific blend mode.

Basic image overlays usage setup. software_imagelightleaks_vol1_layering01

The image above illustrates a basic setup of image overlays within Photoshop. The overlay is placed in a layer above the source image and the blend mode set to an additive one such as screen. Finally, the opacity is adjusted until a desirable look is achieved. Image overlays can also be used in subtractive more such as with multiply, but the overlay should first be adjusted and / or inverted. Finally, additive and subtractive blend modes such as overlay, soft light and hard light can produce more dramatic results but once again, the overlay should first be adjusted. In these cases, first editing the overlay to a mid tone level (not too dark and not too light) will yield the best results.

Experiment with multiple layers and blend modes. software_imagelightleaks_vol1_layering02

Using light leaks can be a lot more elaborate. It is typical to combine multiple layers with varying blend modes and opacities. Stacking them in this manner will allow for dramatic and unique effects specifically tailored to your image.
