    Whenever I adjust certain parts of my photo in Aperture, I get this weird bug that turns half of my photo a solid orange. I have attached a picture of what I am talking about. Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Might help if you give some details regarding your machine and what version of Aperture you're using. I've never seen the "bug" before. Also, by "adjust certain parts" can you be more specific as to which parts you adjust?

    If it's tweaking the exposure upwards that produces this, then it looks like it's showing where 'clipping' is taking place, i.e. where the highlights are maxed out on brightness and detail is gone

    it's not a bug. go to "View" in the menubar and unselect "Highlight Hot Areas".

    As noted this is a feature, it means you're blowing out details in the areas that are highlighted. I frequently toggle this on and off as i make adjustments to ensure that I minimize blown highlights.

    Cheers.
