English term or phrase: clipping
Bonjour à tous les Kudozers,

Je cherche la traduction en français du terme "clipping", dont voici la définition :

"Too-bright highlights or too-dark shadows are seen as uniform areas of whiteness or blackness, respectively, in an image. This is the result of capturing or processing an image in which the intensity in certain areas falls outside the minimum or maximum intensity which the device can reproduce."

Merci d'avance pour vos contributions.

Bien cordialement,
