    UNABLE to access the Filter Gallery

      Good morning,

       

      Per this screen shot, I am unable to view or access the filter gallery and I would very much like to. 

       

      The history portion of the screen shot shows my workflow.

       

      First I opened an image and then opened a Curves adjustment layer.  Because I only wanted to change the luminosity values, I then changed the Blending Mode from Normal to "Luminosity".  Then I made a minor Curves adjustment, followed by forming a new layer via copy of my original background layer.

       

      At that time, I was unable to access the filter gallery.

       

      I therefore converted that layer I had just created into a smart object but, as the screen shot demonstrates, am still unable to access the filter gallery.

       

      Any thoughts?  I am running CS6 on a Mac and I am working in Adobe RGB image mode, 16 bit.
