I am unable to activate the Filter Gallery in PS CS6. I cannot activate in CS5 either, but was able to do so before installing Mac Lion (now running OSX 10.7.4). I have checked preferences and re-started, to no avail. When I check the plug-ins for CS6, it reports that Filter Gallery, version 13.0 exists.

Check your foreground and background colors - they are probably both set to black or both set to white. Many of the Filter Gallery filters use the foreground and background colors for their effects. Exit the filter and hit the D key to set the colors back to the default Black for foreground, and White for background
