Missing filters in Photoshop CC

Dec 3, 2013 1:45 PM

I have Photoshop CC and seem to be missing many of the filters. All of the following are either missing entirely or are missing some of their sub-items: artistic, brush stroke, distort, render (only have lighting effects), stylize filters (about half are missing), sketch, and texture. Am I missing something? Is there some setting I need to enable? In my research, someone suggested selecting the "Show all Filter Gallery groups and names" check box in Preferences -> Plug-Ins. Unfortunately, that didn't have any effect. Photoshop (and all my other Creative Cloud apps are up to date). Any suggestions? Or do I need to contact Support?

    First thing to check is Preferences > Plug-ins and make sure 'Show all filter groups and names' is checked.

    Image mode and bit depth?   Sounds like you would know to check that. 

     

    Are we talking about standard Photoshop filters, or third party plug-ins?

    Did you restart photoshop cc after checking Show all Filter Gallery groups and names?

    If yes, it might be an idea to reset your preferences.  (Alt Ctrl Shift imediatley after starting Photoshop)

     

    How long have you have CC?  Did you upgrade from an earlier version, and if so which one?  Have the filters ever worked in CC?

     

    Oh, and have you tried other images?
