Photoshop Filters - Why are most greyed out?
Jul 23, 2012

I've got a question about the available filters in Photoshop CS5 & 6.

Why are at least half or more of them, actually most of them greyed(grayed) out and not available? I got out the installation disc for both of them to see if they were on there but not installed on my comp, but apparently there's nothing missing. I don't get it. Everything under Artistic or Brush Strokes, or Sketch, Texture, Distort are greyed out. And that's in CS5. Some of those categories are completely missing in CS6. Where are they?
