Hello,Is it possible to make an option to adjust Clipping color for Highlights in future update of Lightroom? It is very hard and Unhealthy for eyes to work with 100% red color when it fills almost full screen (for example isolation of an object on white). Best regards,Nikita

Keyboard shortcut [ J ] turns clipping indicators off (toggles on/off).

And hold [ ALT ] as you move Blacks and Whites sliders to preview clipped areas.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Provide a way to change the color of the clipping warnings in Camera Raw.

When working on predominantly RED or BLUE images, the Camera Raw clipping warning colors of red (highlights) and blue (shadows) are almost impossible to see. This is particularly an issue for flower Macro and similar shots. It would be highly desirable to be able to change these colors similar to the way that mask colors can be changed.  I attached the image I was working on when I found this to be an issue. 

Many Thanks,

I came to make the same feature request and see someone has beat me to it. So allow me to add my voice to the request. There are many cases where yellow or green would be much easier to see. For example, editing this photo I knew there was some clipping in the highlights. Presumably it is just the specular highlights on the sequins, which is acceptable. But enabling "show highlight clipping" just adds more red to the vest and doesn't help me confirm my assumption.
