Light leaks occur when a film roll is exposed to light. In the most common case, it happens when you unexpectedly open the film compartment after snapping a few photos. To simulate such recklessness digitally, just add an appropriate photo effect.

This effect instantly makes any photo cute and extra tangible, even if it's just pixels on the screen. Film burn, leaks, and other imperfections are a way to reference or play with vintage photo effects by evoking the analog look of old-fashioned photography in your creative projects such as art retouch, event and film posters, book covers, magazine spreads, and many more.
