      Welcome

       

      I'm beginner in LR 5. Few seconds ago something goes wrong because all white colors from pictures turn into red (white comes red)
      Sometimes it's ok but for now it isn't.

       

      Please - could someone help me?
      Here you have sample:

          Hi

           

          Greetings!!!

          That is Gamut warning.

          All the part that is showing in red will get converted to pure white when you will print it.

          You can turn off the Gamut warning by clicking on the arrow in the histogram panel on the right,

            The red that is showing is the clipping indicator. It indicates areas of the picture that are overexposed. You can usually correct the problem by reducing highlights or the whites. If you see areas in blue pen that indicates that your shadows are being clipped. Adjusting shadows and blacks can help eliminate such clipping. If you don't want to see these indicators, you can just press the J key to turn them off.
