The action recreates thick paint daubs and strong brush strokes of the impasto style oil painting. The action works best with portraits and landscapes and other photos. Final composition is fully layered and provides lots of effects and customization. The action also creates 20 color presets to apply with a single click. Its super easy to use and save yourself hours of work.

The video tutorial link is included in the ‘Help.pdf’ file in the download. The video tutorial covers important steps on how to set up the Photoshop files and in-depth effect customization techniques after the effect has been applied.

IMPORTANT! This action uses the Oil Paint Filter.

The compatible versions of Photoshop are CS 6, CC, CC 2015.1, CC 2015.5+, CC 2017, CC 2018+.
The oil paint filter is missing in versions of CS 5 and below, CC 2014, CC 2015. Hence, this action will not work in these versions.

If Oil Paint is grayed out for you, try these steps:

  • Make sure Photoshop is up-to-date.
  • Make sure that your document is RGB. Oil Paint won’t work on color spaces other than RGB (e.g. CMYK, Lab, etc.).
  • If you’re on Windows, make sure you’re running a 64-bit OS with the 64-bit version of Photoshop. OpenCL requires 64-bit.
  • Make sure Use Graphics Processor is checked under Preferences > Performance.
  • Make sure that your video card driver is up to date with the latest from the vendor 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 gain access to the Oil Paint filter.

Information about your graphics card can be found in Photoshop’s Help > System Info dialog.

On computers with AMD graphics processors running Mac OS X 10.11 and later, you can leverage Apple’s Metal graphics acceleration framework for use with the Oil Paint filter. Follow these steps:

  1. Select Preferences > Performance.
  2. Ensure that Use Graphics Processor is selected.
  3. Open the Advanced Graphics Processor Settings dialog.
  4. Select Use Native Operating System GPU Acceleration.
