Reds blown

Someone commented to me recently that the reds looked blown in some photos I took, and I read that again yesterday, and I'm just wondering:

Angel How do you tell when your reds are blown? and
(b) How do you fix it? I know Steph mentioned something about a hue/sat layer, but I'm not clear on how that works.

TIA!

In photoshop you can check for blown areas by hitting the info button and going over the picture with your cursor. I consider anything above 240 blown. Hope this helps. If you are using LR anything above 90 is considered blown.
