The Best Apps for Adding a Light Leak Effect to Your Photos

Back in the days when everyone used cameras with actual film inside of them, occasionally a crack would develop that would allow a little light to leak inside of the chamber where the film was. The results would be streaks of discoloration on the photos, which in some cases, looked pretty cool. These apps allow you to recreate this light leak effect on your shots.
