I have a feeling that something along these lines has been requested before - - but I cannot find it.
On reviewing corrections made to an image, it would be very useful to know whether or not any Local Adjustment has been applied. For now, it’s necessary to open the image in Local Adjustment mode to find out - - which is a slow & time-wasting process.
For images that have Local Adjustment(s) applied to them;
Add an indicator to the thumbnail image (on the Image Browser) - similar to the one shown for images to which Prime Noise reduction has been applied.
Provide a filter option to “Show images with Local Adjustment applied”

PS. I’m out of votes … If you have any spare, and you like this idea then please support it.
you mean like having a number appearing beside the adjustment icon letting you know how many correction/adjustment you’ve used?
that could be nice, fast to know how many and for details you can click on it as you doung now.
I’d prefer to have an indication on the thumbnail that a specific image (or a version of course) has had Local Adjustments applied … but I would not down-vote the related filter option if it was perhaps easier (or quicker) for the Developers to implement.
As noted here, by @Calle and @obetz, a danger is presented if Partial Presets are based on an image that contains Local Adjustments (that can cause Local Adjustments to be removed from any other image to which the partial preset is applied).
This reinforces the importance of being aware that a local adjustment has been applied to an image - and reminded me of the request logged here/above.
An easier-to-implement solution (from that proposed above) would be to include a check/tick or some icon on the Local Adjustment button. Something like this: … for images to which any Local Adjustment has been applied.
Absolutely John. A visual indicator that there are Local Adjustments would be extremely useful. I’m also out of votes but as soon as some are released I’d vote for this feature. Unlike some of the other overwhelming requests for full Photoshop within local adjustments or completely new colour engines or a new DAM which combines all the features of Lightroom, the Finder, iMatch and ACDSee Windows Studio, adding a Local Adjustments existing or non-existing is trivial. There’s literally almost no barrier to adding this very useful feature.
