Lightroom painted the blown out highlights in my images green on Lightroom Classic. 

I am on Lightroom Classic 13.1 with a Mac Ventura 13.4.

I have gone in to try and fix the green and now the software is painting other highlights red. 

See images. 

I have never had this problem in years. 

and I need to fix asap as it is for a client. 

Please help.

The red highlights are simply the clipping warning. Turn it off by clicking on the white triangle in the upper right corner of the histogram. The green could be a GPU issue. Go to Preferences - Performance and turn off the use of the GPU to see if that solves it.

Thank you Johan.  I appreciate it.  I have the clipping warning turned off but still cannot get rid of the initial issue of the green painted highlights.  I did turn off the use of the GPU to no avail...

Unfortunately, I am not quite capable at masking to the point where I have to start from scratch...

The only other thing to try that I can think of is resetting the preferences:

Another possibility that just crossed my mind is a defective monitor profile. I don't think it is very likely (the histogram shows a green spike, which suggests that color is real), but it is worth trying what happens if you temporarily select another profile.

Sigh.  Didn't work.   Guess its easier to start all over again.  But my bigger concern than the waste of time, is if this happens again. SIGH....
