This action uses the Oil Paint Filter.
Compatible versions of Photoshop are CS 6, CC, CC 2015.1, CC 2015.5+, CC 2017, CC 2018+.
CS 5 and below, CC 2014, CC 2015 versions do not have an oil paint filter. So this process will not work on these versions.
If Oil Paint is gray, try these steps:
Make sure Photoshop is up to date.
Make sure your document is RGB. Oil Paint does not work in color spaces other than RGB (eg CMYK, Lab, etc.).
If you’re using Windows, make sure you’re running a 64-bit operating system with a 64-bit version of Photoshop. Requires OpenCL 64-bit.
Preferences> Under Performance, make sure Use Graphics Processor is checked.
Make sure your video card driver is up to date with the latest version from the vendor’s website.
Note: If your video card does not support OpenCL v1.1 or higher, you may need to purchase an upgraded video card that supports OpenCL v1.1 or higher to access the Oil Paint filter.
Information about your graphics card Photoshop’s Help> It can be found in the System Information dialog.
On computers with AMD graphics processors running Mac OS X 10.11 and later, you can take advantage of Apple’s Metal graphics acceleration framework for use with the Oil Paint filter. Follow these steps:
Preferences> Select Performance.
Make sure Use Graphics Processor is selected.
Open the Advanced Graphics Processor Settings dialog.
Select Use Native OS GPU Acceleration.
