Post How to Repair a Light Leak or Stain.

Any picture which has been affected by a light leak or stain usually has two problems
1) The luminosity changes (fading)
2) The colours change (very often turning red or orange)
These marks will be different for every picture so I will try to describe more general methods that should work for most light leaks.
This tutorial was written in PS7 however it should easily translate to CS. [details]
