Quicktips: Lomo Light Leaks by lukeroberts Quicktips: Lomo Light Leaks by lukeroberts
The gradient one looks long but it's very simple. If you're an advanced user, this is what it says: Gradient Fill layer, orange to transparent, blend: Vivid Light or Colour Dodge :)

This may sound stupid but...

How do you create real light leaks?
(or is it always accidently)?

real light leaks are when you have cracks or holes in your SLR and the light effects your film.

I do fake light leaks too. I've always done them by brushing them on.

I thinkYou should mention in this tutorial, though, that using the blending mode "overlay" on the light-leak layer also gives a realistic effect, depending on the colors that are underneath it.

Also, when you blur the light leaks using Motion Blur, it's sometimes a good idea to increase the "distance" in the Motion Blur pop-up window. If you look at photos of REAL light leaks, sometimes they are very long and stretch over halfway across or down the photo.
