Legacy downloads for the Pixel Bender plug-in that are compatible with Photoshop CS4, Photoshop CS5 (12.0) and Photoshop CS5 (12.1) have been relocated from Adobe Labs to here:

Pixel Bender was an Adobe Labs preview technology that is no longer being developed. The older Pixel Bender plug-ins are not compatible with Photoshop CS6.

Photoshop CS6 has taken the Pixel Bender filter most popular with customers, Oil Paint, and turned it into a shipping feature in CS6.

On the download page ( http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/pixel... ) there are 2 groups, one for CS5.5 and one for CS5 below that. You want the lower group.

Hi, I'm trying to download and install Pixel Bender on to my copy of CS5. When I go to the Adobe Labs area, and follow the link to the 64 bit Mac version, I'm just getting a page of gibberish instead of a download page. I'm running a Mac, with Lion and using Safari. Appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks.

I'm a little late to this conversation, but I've been trying to download pixel bender for CS5 for mac from the Adobe Labs link and it comes through with a damaged Install file. Anyone have any suggestions?  I've contacted Adobe, but they weren't very helpful!

You must have downloaded the Pixel Bender Toolkit, which is not the same as the pixel bender plugin for photoshop.

Unfortunately, adobe has purged most vintage software and updates from their servers, so old stuff like the pixel bender plugins are no longer available for download.

Thank you for responding. I don’t suppose you know of anywhere where you could download the plug-in...

I appreciate your help, but I've tried this link several times.  Here are the screens I'm getting:
First: 

Then: 

Meanwhile, it says it's installing, but there's nothing in the log: 


And there's no plugin in the Filter list . . .  I know it's not that big of a deal, but sometimes when I get stuck on something, I just like to resolve it.
