In LR3.6, is there any way to change the setting where the highlight alert red color pops on the image? In other words, instead of showing blown whites at 255, could the highlights alert show blown skin tone at 230?

Actually, it's a percentage, not a value.

To answer your question: no. The histogram will show the highlights blowing out through the RGB values via different colours on the highlight "triangle." So you can see it approach 100% for each colour.

Hi John,

Thank you for your response. I had not found a way and I was hoping someone else had an insight. The ability to set the highlight warning threshold was one of the key reasons I used Capture One for so many years. I do miss that feature in Lightroom.
