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.
Cheers,
Michael.

@Robin: as I understand it, if you are a member of cc, you can get a parallell instalation of an oder version, which still supports the filter.
Kind of sucks, to have two full photoshop versions RAM- hogging side by side just to keep a filter up and running.
Not happy with the situation, either.

Oilpaint effect missing in Photoshop CC 2014.


Dear Adobe development: with Photoshop CC 2014 you have kicked out the oilpaint filter without any replacement. I miss this filter and I know I am not alone. Please give it back!

It was my favorite filter in Photoshop. I use it for my work as a photographer and it gives my pictures that special soft but sharp look. It is kind of my signature for my clients.

It is really not a good idea to run different versions of photoshop on my computer. It makes everything slow and it is not convenient either.

So I really want this filter back. !!!

It was the "Spring cleaning"!
As a result of doing some "architectural spring-cleaning" and adding "cool new features" Adobe has decided to remove the popular Oilpaint filter (https://blogs.adobe.com/photoshopdotc...).
I think this unresponsible, because many professional users depend on it. This "cool" behaviour makes Adobe unreliable to me. Apparently, they are capable to remove your precious tools at any time!
I think Adobe should at least offer this filter as a free plugin for CC members.

I have reloaded Photoshop 6 because I too use the oil paint filter ALL THE TIME. Also, CC 2015 no longer works with some of the add on filters that I use ALL THE TIME so I am working with those third party suppliers to figure out ways to keep using their paid-for products also.

This was a terrible move. Why should I give you money when you are taking away some of the ways that I make my money? VERY disappointed, FWIW, which apparently isn't much, I have been a loyal PS user since it's inception in the late '80s.

I love how the "solution" is to download a previous version of PS. Those of us who pay for the CC subscription are promised the most up to date version of Photoshop. Why should we have to sacrifice all of the new features for a tiny filter. This is a huge FAIL for Adobe. That filter was also something that I used often and would really like it back please.

Thanks

Sorry, not in my release :( I don't see it... and the examples shown are using CS6 ??

I see a Oil Filter in one of the menus but it is always grayed out.

And the blog entry does not mention the filter... ?!?!
