I use the adjustment brush a fair bit....... I know we can change the colour of the adjustment brush area applied - but depending on the images sometimes it's hard to see those grey pins - particularly against b&w images and if you've got a lot of adjustments applied - sometimes you spend ages trying to find where I placed the actual pin.

If we had the option to change them to a bright... red, pink, yellow etc - that would be really helpful.

I can't be the only one..... who sometimes wonders where they've put there pin?

Thanks

P.s Also when I'm syncing or using the previous button occasionally I miss the odd pin in a random place, I forget to delete it...... and then realise I've been applying it to the last odd 30 photos or so!

Absolutely agree, it's sometimes really too easy to overlook a pin (or two!) and then have to go back and re-edit after I've realised that something looks a bit off.  

Even when you know where it should be it's not always obvious so yes please.

Would like to see adjustment pins have ability to add color other than the drab grey now being the default. This would allow us to quickly see where are adjustments were made after time has past.

It is often difficult to find the pin of radial filters, degraded or brush, would it be possible to add a function to change the color instead of the gray often confused with the image?

7 years the proposal was made ... At Adobe do you ever work with your tools?
So please in the next version of Lightroom Classic, it becomes ubiquitous this kind of essential improvements.

It's obvious to me that the employees coding LR are not photographers, they're simply programmers. What Adobe needs to do is to at least consult with real photographers that use LR for their post production work.

It's worse still if you work in monochrome! It would also be nice to display a count of pins.

Please allow to vary the color and size of the pins of filters and brushes in Lightroo Classic and LR CC. This is urgeant because screens have more high resolution and these brands become invisible. .

I have the same problem, especially with B&W images; edit pins are sometimes very difficult to find. 

I agree that being able to change the color of the pins would help. Another possible solution:

Provide a keyboard command that will select or highlight edit pins and cycle through all the existing pins within any given tool. In other words, I activate the adjustment brush tool, then use this new command to select the first pin even if I can't see it, hit the command again and it cycles to the next pin, etc. With a pin selected, I could use the mask overlay visibility feature to easily spot the location of the pin.

My workaround is to change basic exposure, image goes dark but pins don’t.
Would love a pin count!
