I'm not sure I understand your problem but it looks to me that if you uncheck the shadow and highlight boxes the red and blue colors are gone because when this boxes are checked the red warns for blown out highlights and the blue for to much blacks, no more no less...
I got the same advice when I first posted on CS2 forum and then they said to post here.
Note that I the clipping indicators are there for a real reason- to indicate real clipping, when checked. Since this is not real clipping - it only occurs after opening something in ACR, optimizing in CS2, and then opening more bridge images in ACR. If I close CS2 and then open the images in ACR, then they don't show the false clipping. Something done in CS2 influences the next opening of images in ACR.
Now if I uncheck the clipping indicators then ACR will be almost useless as then I wouldn't know when real clipping occurred.
Looks like another one of my problems where no one has a clue.
Can you be more specific with details. What operating system are your on, what version of software from CS2 and ACR are you using?
What 'something' are you opening in ACR and with what kind of RAW files are you working??
>Now if I uncheck the clipping indicators then ACR will be almost useless as then I wouldn't know when real clipping occurred.
Not true, some clipping is not always bad, there is also the histogram to indicate and there are at least a dozen more ways to use for preparing the image the way you want in ACR :-)
>Looks like another one of my problems where no one has a clue.
That sounds like you have a bad install. :/
EDIT: Sorry, I've deleted the rest of this post, as it was Macintosh specific and you haven't told us if you're on a Mac or on a Windows machine.
Can you please post a screen capture to show what you are talking about?
This is Windows XP Pro. CS2
Not sure where it says which ACR.
I was opening photos of birds in ACR then optimizing in CS2, using such things as shadow/highlight, levels, saturation with layers, then using an action to flatten, convert to 8 bit from 16 and save. After doing so and opening more images in ACR the problem occurs.
Closing CS2 and then opening ACR with images, they are normal looking.
How do I post a screen capture?
Upload it to your personal web space and post the link here.
Or use the free http://www.pixentral.com
I uploaded a screen capture to http://theearlybirder.com/s-h%20capture
This is how any image opens after first editing something in CS2, but not the first time I open something in ACR before that, and not after closing and reopening CS2.
