I'd like the oil paint filter back. When I'm shooting models in the fields, this filter ads a van Gogh'ian touch to the background, if not overdone. It needs to be strokes, so just a soft filter wouldn't cut it.
And no, running two installations on the same machine to feature a single plugin is not a solution, it's not even a propter workaround.
I liked the idea you had a couple of versions back, where you were able to download the filter as a separate plugin from adobe labs or Adobe marketplace, I'm not sure.
And I truly would appreciate a splash screen *before* the update to notify of any plugin dismissal beforehand - I'm sure this was notified in some Adobe forum beforehand, but since I, for one belong to the working world, I can't afford to spend all of my time in all forums for all the software that I own.
