I cannot find the oil paint filter anymore in the recent version, it is not hidden in the paint galleries. I hope that Adobe did include it otherwise i cant use the updates anymore....

Hello, it is not available anymore in CC(2014) hence why it is installed side by side to CC.

The info was posted a few months ago: http://blogs.adobe.com/photoshopdotcom/2014/04/photoshop-spring-cleaning.html

Thank you Pierre. Too bad that they did a major downgrading on Photoshop CC 2014...

I used it to calm down the appearance of the pictures. At the end of editing, i make 2 copies. One will be way oversharped, either with highpass or sharpening tool, the other will be oil painted. The oilpaint with all settings to 0 except the first 2 options to 9 or 10. then reduce the opacity of the oil effect until it meets the taste. Usually down to 50%. Details come back due to the oversharpening and it gets a wonderful calm tone. I use it for portraits and landscape.

I too use the Oil Paint filter for creating digital "paintings". I just took a course on Adobe Creative Live, "Painting with Photoshop" by Jack Davis. In this course the Oil Paint filter is used in ALL of his actions to create your paintings! Please bring it back to PS CC 2014!

Unreal!  So I'm supposed to have side-by-side photoshops taking up space on my computer?  That's ridiculous.  PS is already behind the times with their filters.  Why get rid of oil paint???? *throws up hands*

Oh dear....I have this fear I will not understand the answer Pictus.  Unless it's like "copy and paste this here" I'm a bit lost lol.  I just don't get why PS takes things away.  Why on earth would they do that?

What's the point of using two versions of PS? I don't want to run PS CC, just to use the oil paint filter, I want to use it in PS CC 2014.

What's next? CC 2015, CC 2016.... And all versions with different features? That's ridiculous!

Oil paint filter was the one I used the most. Paying my CC membership over $850CAD a year, saying I'm very disapointed is an understatement and I'm seriously considering other options..

I'm curious...

Of those of you who have been using Oil Paint, are you just using it for the anisotropic blurring (e.g., smoothing of hair/edges)?  In other words, are you just setting the bottom 4 sliders to the lowest settings?  And have you always been adjusting the result with Curves, setting the white point to 240?

Hi Noel, you described exactly what and how i used the oil paint filter and I always had to adjust the curves to taste. Is there any workaround to achieve that anisotropic blurring in another way? Frankly I did not know how to call what I did....

There's some potential in the Greycstoration plug-in listed at the link above posted by Pictus 171, but the interface is geeky and clunky to use.  It may be that you use only one set of parameters every time, and you can struggle through picking a set that gives mostly the same effect as Oil Paint.  And the good news is that it doesn't darken the image.  It's a PC-only plug-in.

I'm considering creating a professional plug-in that provides the essential smoothing function with a fully-featured UI so it's easy to use.  Unfortunately for Mac users I'm only set up to build plug-ins for PC as well.

I am another user that is furious Oil Paint is gone in the latest version. Many of your users, Adobe, do use that filter and may even regard it as one of their most important tools depending upon the work required. Bring it back.

I too, was shocked and dismayed to see the oil paint filter gone in 2014.  Only recently discovered it in the original cc, and it quickly became a priceless tool in a ongoing portion of my routine processing.  Used it much in the same way as the others here, and it's become irreplaceable.  I don't, however, have a problem with keeping the original PS CC on my machine and using it to do my processing specifically when I need the OP effect.  I feel inconvenienced, but can live with it until, of course, they put it back into a subsequent update.

You ARE going to put it back aren't you?

Won't happen.

You'll have to use the just-released 3rd party filter.

Photoshop: Spring Cleaning | PHOTOSHOP.COM BLOG

"Oil Paint is a very cool filter, but relied on a very large and complex code library used for an outdated technology (Pixel Bender) that is no longer supported.

Update/note: It looks like a 3rd party has released a full PixelBender-esque plug-in that will work in CC. Haven’t tried it myself, but may interest those who liked Oil Paint and PixelBender: http://aescripts.com/pixel-bender-accelerator-for-photoshop/"

I coloring comics and the oil painting filter is great to make a photo texture and make it look more “drawn” and fit better into the comic.

So right now I use CC 14.2 instead of CC 2014

Your situation is one of the main reasons Adobe didn’t replace PS CC with PS CC 2014. The oil painting filter is gone, but someone else wrote something similar:

I was just looking for missing filters in Photoshop CC and I was able to get them back by changing the preferences.  Go to Preferences—Plug-Ins, and make sure "Show all Filter Gallery groups and names" is checked.
