    Oil Paint filter not working properly

    Syrax12 Level 1

      When I run it, it just turns the image a dark, almost black, grey. If I change the settings, it functions properly, but several actions I have that use it all fail and give me the dark grey. I'm using Photoshop CC 64bit.

          • Macintosh or Windows? 
          • Exact version of the OS and of Photoshop CC 64 bit?
          • What type of image? 
          • What bit depth and what color space?
          • Can you show your action with all steps visible?

          Note that this is boilerplate text.

          If you give complete and detailed information about your setup and the issue at hand,

          such as your platform (Mac or Win),

          exact versions of your OS, of Photoshop (not just "CS6", but something like CS6v.13.0.6) and of Bridge,

          your settings in Photoshop > Preference > Performance

          the type of file you were working on,

          machine specs, such as total installed RAM, scratch file HDs, total available HD space, video card specs, including total VRAM installed,

          what troubleshooting steps you have taken so far,

          what error message(s) you receive,

          if having issues opening raw files also the exact camera make and model that generated them,

          if you're having printing issues, indicate the exact make and model of your printer, paper size, image dimensions in pixels (so many pixels wide by so many pixels high). if going through a RIP, specify that too.

          etc.,

          someone may be able to help you (not necessarily this poster, who is not a Windows user).

          a screen shot of your settings or of the image could be very helpful too.

            Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

            Photoshop CC 14.2.1

            Image type is an 8bit RGB JPG

            Where the action fails is on the Oil Paint step, exact action step below:

             

            Oil Paint Plugin

                Filter Name: ""

                With Accelerate On the GPU

                Path To File: ""

                Parameter Name: "Stylization"

                Parameter Type: 0

                Parameter Value (float): 1.05

              Now I'm confused.  The Oil Paint filter was removed from Photoshop CC2014; sorry I didn't catch that earlier.

               

              Did you copy it from an older release, Photoshop CC or earlier?

                I'm running in Photoshop CC (14.2.1). Photoshop CC 2014 is version 2014.2.2, which won't run the Oil Paint plugin at all.

                  Adobe don't cease to create confusing nomenclatures for software versions, do they?

                   

                  Sorry for my confusion.  My bad.

                    Adobe?! Do something that makes no sense?!

                      You're not addressing Adobe here in the user forums.  Bummer.

                        UPDATE

                        If I go to Filter>Oil Paint, when it opens, my image is black. The only thing that makes the image appear as expected is changing the Scale, which the default is 0.1. But if you open the Oil Paint filter up again, it's back to a scale of 0.1 and black.

                         

                        UPDATE 2

                        OK, this is strange. If I open Photoshop and then open a file and don't make any edits, and go to Filter>Oil Paint, it works that first time, but any time after that first time, it doesn't, and if I try the same thing with opening Photoshop fresh and run an action that uses Oil Paint, it doesn't work. Did Adobe do something in a recent update that killed Oil Paint in Photoshop CC?
