How to Change Color of Clipped Highlights

Recommended Posts

I *finally* discovered the icon that toggles showing clipped highlights in RAW processing!  Question: How do I change the color used for the clipped highlights?  Yellow seems to be the default.  I happen to be looking at a lemon.  I’d prefer red, like that other program uses for its default.  TIA.

In my experience, clipped highlights are lost info… no

info, I don't know how to change the colour of "nothing"!


One may paint in a transparent coloured layer maybe!

If personal taste is involved,           Light is free,                       Mother Nature provides the light
discussion is pointless.                   capturing it is NOT.               but talent renders the image.

As far as I know the default colors are :

RED  for clipped highlights

BLUE for clipped shadows

You can turn them on/off clicking the icons in the top right corner
