I'm trying an old art effect that is totally terrific.  It begins with layer 1 and Filter>Filter Gallery>Stylize> Find Edges.  That particular filter is missing on both of my computers.  I have a feeling that the last Photoshop update had something to do with its being missing as I used that technique back in July.  How would one get it back?

It's under Filter > Stylize > Find Edges on my computer. If you don't see it, you may need to reset preferences or uninstall/reinstall.

You could check this Preferences > Plugins setting is checked

And if using an up to date version of CC, remember you have an excellent seach facility now.  

Click on the magnifying glass top right corner, and start typing

Even experts will have a rarely used function they need to track down very occasionally, and it saves a lot of time.

Thank you all for your responses. I had no clue about the search engine within Photoshop and lo and behold, find edges is there. Moving on, when I go back to Filter>Stylize>Find Edges, it still isn't there. I'm so happy to have it that I'll use the search feature.

I'm not sure what to do. On all three of my computers with Adobe (monthly subscription) the Filter > Stylize > Find Edges is missing. Yes, I can find it with search, but will that work when I want to write an action? I found the Filter Gallery.8bf under C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2019\Required\Plug-ins\Effects but that isn't something that I can go into and change. Any suggestions as to what to do now? And again, thank you for your great suggestions. And, by the way, I did the Filter and Extension Panels as well.

That is the menu from inside Filter Gallery. Come out of that altogether and in the Photoshop menus use Filter >Stylize >Find Edges

Haha - to be fair, Rob did post the same screenshot as mine in his first reply 🙂   No harm done though - glad it's sorted now
