Prestalgia - 25 Retro Light Leak FX

Live Preview

25 amazing retro effects + 25 unique light leaks! These Photoshop actions give your photos a retro look with light leaks seen in old film cameras.

✔ Snapshot Prerendering:
Play one action and all the effects will be generated for you! Using Photoshop's snapshots feature, you can switch between the effects instantly without running another action.

✔ Easily Editable:
All layers are nondestructive meaning that you can edit the settings. The layers are easy-to-understand and you can adjust the strength of each layer by adjusting their opacity. Even the light leaks are editable!

✔ Lightning Fast:
By minimizing the layers and sticking to nondestructive layers, these actions run FAST. There's no layer merging, raster adjustments, filters, etc.

✔ Professional Results:
Because these actions use RGB curves to change the color and contrast, they give you the maximum image quality, dynamic range, and consistent results with any photo. The light leaks are created using a combination of gradient fill layers so that you get the best quality even on 100 megapixel photos. All the effects are created using nondestructive layers - no raster layers!

    Thank you to everyone who downloaded this! Now you can apply the effects and light leaks separately and install it through Adobe Extension Manager with the ZXP file. Please download the file again and try out the new version :)

    these are so extremely cool. Bought them to see your techniques. I didn't even know this kind of stuff was possible all with gradients. Thanks for these. Great work!!

    Thanks Mike! It took a lot of experimenting to figure it out but it's well worth it. You have some great actions btw!

    I'm absolutely loving these, I've always been a fan of this sort of technique, something I've used in work before - but this makes it so much easier, and the results are stunning. If you made 100 of these sets I'd buy them all for sure.
