Photoshop :: Lighting Effect Filter In CS6 With A 8bit RGB File

Aug 24, 2012

I've read all over that the filter only works with an 8bit/RGB file, which my file is, so I don't understand what the problem is.  I am attempting to light a smart object (3d bevel and extruded text) that I created in illustrator, and thought that I might just need to rasterize the smart object before the filter would work, but even after I render it and or flatten the image, merge visible, I still don't have the option to use lighting effects!

Photoshop :: Lens Flare Filter - Artifacts Ruin Effect - Useless Filter?

Aug 25, 2013

I tried to use the lens flare filter in Photoshop CS6.While the lighting effect is interesting, it introduces ugly artifacts like blue or orange blobs (which are supposed to be the reflection of the diaphragm, but do not look anywhere close to that, but instead are just cheesy looking blobs of color).
In the "movie prime" setting blue lines are added which have nothing to do with lens flar.On top of it, the preview is about the size of a stamp. Any way to use the filter without getting these artifacts, or is it - what I assume - just a useless toy filter, that has probably been dragged on for years and years because it's always been there? What do you use to create a lens flare effect? Are you just building it from scratch with brush work?

Photoshop :: Lighting Filter

Apr 6, 2008

PS CS2 - Win XP

From time to time I observe the following phenomenon:

I want to apply the lighting filter to a graphic. And nothing happens. The dialogue window won´t open, no effect. Only the history list registers: "lighting effects". I think I remember the problem from earlier versions.

What takes it to make the filter work?

Photoshop :: CC Lighting Filter Is Not Working

Sep 7, 2013

Lighting Filter is not working.  When you run the filter the circular ring/point does not appear to adjust the light.  It is totally missing. You can adjust the settings but the filter never runs.  After attempting to run the filter I tried to go back to my workspace.  It would not reset to the default Essential workspace.

The other workspace were OK.  I closed and reopened the application and my workspace was restored.  I tried running my GPU settings in advanced normal and basic.  None of the settings worked.

Photoshop :: Is Lighting Effects Filter Still 32-bit In CS6

Aug 21, 2012

In Photoshop CS4 and CS5, it's a real PIA to have to restart PS in 32-bit mode in order to use the Lighting Effects filter (FILTER>RENDER>LIGHTING EFFECTS). Has this been addressed in CS6?

Photoshop :: Lighting Effects Filter

Aug 24, 2008

I'm having an issue where Photoshop CS3 won't allow me to open up Lighting Effects. I have tried on different layers with no success.

When I open up a new document is seems to work, but any reason why it won't allow me to do it w/ my current project?

Photoshop :: Using The Lighting Effects Filter Causes CS6 To Crash?

Jan 24, 2013

When I open a JPEG file from my mark iii into CS6, I try to start a new layer and then add the lighting effects filter.  CS6 crashes (the little effects comes up on the screen and the little blue circle goes round and round). Nothing happens, but if I check task manager it says photoshop is not running. 
I have windows, 16GB ram, and am using a small percent of my memory. 
How do I see if I need to update my video card and how do I do that?

The lighting effects filter is unresponsive.  It appears on my images with the accompanying controls in the layers panel.  However, when I try to use the on screen controls, they do not respond.
