I have some raw photos taken using the Automated Exposure Bracketing setting on my drone camera.

They look fine in microsoft photos but when I open them in Photoshop Camera Raw part of the sky is bright red.

Any ideas why?

They are areas of over-exposure.

You seem to have the Gamut Warning on, if you are bracketing to later HDR, then you can probably switch it off & ignore it.

In Photoshop itself - View menu, or Cmd ⌘ Shift ⇧ Y [swap Cmd ⌘ for Ctrl ⌃ is on Windows]

Inside Camera RAW it's just the O key, Mac or Windows.

  • thanks -- In camera raw it's just the "o" key on windows. Commented Mar 4, 2020 at 14:46
  • Ah, yes, it's different in Camera Raw to Ps itself, oddly. Will update answer.
