Hello, do you know if it is possible on Photoshop and without using Camera Raw to display the overexposed areas and the underexposed areas directly on the image and its frames?
Thank you so much

You can do this in Levels by holding the ALT/OPT key modifier when moving the highlight or shadow slider inward. Curves has a similar clipping preview feature. Unlike working on raw sensor data, we can't actually recover clipping in blown highlights in rendered data.

You can fake it with a color fill layer and Blend If.

Add a solid color fill adjustment layer, set whatever color you want to show blown highlights.

Double-click the color layer in the Layers panel and set Blend If for the Underlying Layer, you'll move the double black slider (on the left) all the way to the right (255) in Blending Options. This will only show your fill color to blown out areas.

Also note that the Photoshop technique Stephen describes is where this started; Photoshop has offered a clipping preview since before Camera Raw existed.

 

If you don’t want to have to press the Option/Alt key while dragging an end point in a selected Curves or Levels adjustment layer, click to open the Properties panel menu and enable Show Clipping for Black/White Points.

Yep this is useful for adjustments, so now you have two ways to accomplish what you want but which show clipping in a different way.

Thank you both very much, I tested the first method and it works easily, it's a little less intuitive than with Camera Raw though. But I don't want to merge my layers! I will also try the seconde method.

No need to merge layers. Keep everything as an adjustment layer. Using the Levels/Curves tool is great, you can also use an adjustment layer.
