I am working in Photoshop CC and I have a picture open and the layer is selected (it is the only layer). I open the filter gallery and the image opens in the gallery just fine. But as I click on different filters, nothing happens to the image in the preview. It stays the same, even when I close the filter gallery, there are no changes to the image on the layer. It is as if the filters are not working.
I have heard of people having issues with filter previews being white or blank or the filter gallery not being available, but that is not my problem. Everything works, except once you click a filter style, nothing changes. Does anyone know what the problem might be?
I am working out of windows 8.1
Make sure the eye is on next to the list of applied filters.
Thank you so much Jeff! That fixed it!
Many thanks from me too. 🙂
If turning on the eye doesn't fix the issue, can you post a picture of your image, layers panel and the open Filter Gallery window so we can get a better picture of what is going on?
Thanks mglush! The previous answer took care of it!
Great! Glad to hear that you are back up and running!
I do not have an eye to select with Win 10
Can you post a screenshot of what your seeing?
Not working still for me.....eyeball on or not....not happening. In fact, I don't think it's even engaging when I hit OK. Something extra to install, perhaps? I';ve really enjoyed the decades with zero free updates in the filter gallery while the free competition is buried in filters.
What's not happening?
What version of photoshop and operating system are you using?
Please share a screenshot.
I've been adjusting the distortion, smoothness, and scaling sliders but the effect doesn't show even after I click "OK."
I think it's an issue with my selection but I'm not sure what the issue is exactly. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
You have the preview off.
Click just to the left of Glass to turn the preview back on.
