Lightroom in 60-Seconds: How to Tell If Your Image is Clipping (and what to do about it if it is)

Clipping your highlights is probably at the top of the list of things that can damage your image, destroying detail and leaving you with no pixels whatsoever in that damaged area. Here’s how to see if parts of your image are clipping and what to do about it if you have clipping. Heads up: This is one is really more like “Lightroom in two-minutes. Couldn’t fit both things in just one minute).

Hope you found that helpful.

Here’s to a better than average Tuesday! 🙂

    On US keyboards, pressing ‘j’ will turn it on/off as a shortcut.

    You’ll see red if highlights are blown and blue where shadows are too deep. If don’t have an issue in the image, those 2 boxes in the upper corners of the histogram display will still be outlined in white to let you know it’s on.
