Getting a Lens Flare in the right place each time is not always the easiest thing…

Whenever a lens flare is applied to an image (you can read up about the different Lens Flares in our tutorial), it’s not always in the right place.

Use the Move tool to reposition it and you’ll notice a slight edge where the Lens Flare hits the edge of your image.

Add a layer mask to this and then use a soft Eraser brush tip (set to black) to paint away this harsh edge.
