Filter gallery unavailable after clicking on a single channel. Deleted prefs - did not fix problem. Worked fine minutes before. Shut down restarted. Same problem.

Trying to select red channel to apply unsharp mask.

What kind of layer do you currently have selected? The filters will be disabled if you have certain layers selected with a single channel (e.g. a Smart Object layer)
