Photoshop: Please support PixelBender in CS6/CC

Why pn earth would Adobe drop this hugely successful and uniqe set of plug-ins/filters! I know a lot of people are very unhappy about this. I really hope Adobe changes its mind and comes out with an upgrade/patch to fix this problem.

How would we get this wish and information out there onto the web, whereby some of these smart kids can find out about this?

There are plenty of smart guys who are totally capable of doing this, but how do we alert them to what we want?

I have a classmate who might know some people who make these photo-enhancing apps for smartphones, perhaps somebody there could get the ball rolling. I will try to see if they are interested.

Some interesting stuff here, but I am in over my head once they talk about code.

This could be promising?

This info is old, but interesting.

I have to have the pixel bender plugin for the digital art I produce and for this reason I will not upgrade from CS5 until it is added!

I purchased CS5 from Adobe as a download. I loved PixelBender. I switched to PS CC, thinking that it would contain PixelBender. Unfortunately someone at Adobe made a decision to no longer support Pixel Bender in PSCC or PS6. I no longer have CS5 since I replaced it with PSCC. How can I get PS5 back? Sometimes I think Adobe doesn't care about their users, who have paid lots of money for the Adobe software.

I have CS4 CS6 CC and CC2014 all on my computer. there was no reason to uninstall CS5. It you have the install DNG or disk image just reinstall CS5. If you don't have that disk image you just threw away $1000.
BTW Adobe didn't make you remove CS5 so being angry at Adobe is stupid.

ABOVE IS A LINK TO "PHOTOSHOP PEOPLE. Perhaps they can be flooded with these apparently unanswered pleas to BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL PIXEL BENDER OIL PAINT FILTER IN CS6.

KNOCK, KNOCK...ANYONE LISTENING ADOBE???

I bought this,

And have the Oil Paint filter in CS6.
But its not the real PixelBender of course.

But go ahead and use these till maybe someday we will get it back?

Give them a try anyway.
Here is one that I did with Oil Paint filter, took a while playing around with the controls, but not bad. Not as easy as PB could do it, but still better than nothing.

I just recently down loaded ps cc. I wanted it for several reasons, one of which was the oil paint filter which I understand was in the pixelbender. I'm really disappointed because my version of ps does not even have the oil paint filter. We can't find it and we just did the update.
Where is it

So here it is, May 2015, and I'm still mourning PB. I was able to keep it running by hanging onto a legacy copy of PS, but then I carelessly upgraded my Mac to Yosemite and pffffffffft. I'm now giving serious, serious thought to setting up a legacy Mac with a legacy OS to run my legacy PS so that I can run PB. I've frisked the cosmos looking for software that does similar things and - nada.

To those who created PB, you did wonderful work.

I am very disappointed with Adobe by wetting our whistle using CS5 and then pulling the plug on CC.
I hope in your wisdom that you realize there are many users who liked Pixel Bender and are now frustrated with your decision. You should reconsider for your users.

Look Nothing is forever, if you really need to use pixel bender keep that version of Photoshop that supported it handy just for that use. I keep CS4 installed just to use a bergdesign filter. the solution is rather simple.

...and you think that's okay? What you've written above is clearly a solution of PS users "BENDING" to Adobe. Rather than Adobe making pixel bender front compatible to updated versions of PS. Shame on you Adobe, you don't even join in these posts and offer help. Some of these comments go back four years already and no sign of Adobe. Shame on you.
