The oil paint filter is not available on my system (grayed out) even though I have a powerful graphic card, the newest Nvidia drivers and walked through all the available troubleshooting steps. Anybody have this issue as well or does the 1070 just not work with the oil paint filter?

  • Didn't they remove the oil paint filter? – Scott Nov 29 '18 at 18:43
  • Its visible in my UI, but grayed out – Christian Strang Nov 29 '18 at 20:47
  • @Scott it was reintroduced in CC2015 – Sergey Kritskiy Nov 30 '18 at 9:13

    If you're on windows, I'd suggest you try uninstalling current drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller and then install new drivers. I've heard that if you have remnants of old drivers in your machine, PS may sort of find false information about your graphics card an disable the open Open CL option... or something like that... Might be worth a shot. Uninstalling with DDU might not be necessary since Nvidia has the "clean" install, but DDU is more thorough so I'd just straight up try that. – Joonas Dec 1 '18 at 17:09

    Joonas you were right, after cleaning my system in safe mode with DDU and reinstalling the NVIDIA drivers, use OpenCL is now selectable, thank you! (if you convert your comment to an answer, I'll mark it as solved). – Christian Strang Dec 2 '18 at 15:59

Also, it only works in RGB Color mode.
