Pixel Bender (PB) is a free Photoshop filter plug-in that you can download from Adobe Labs here. You can download it for CS4 but you will not have access to the “Oil Painter” filter which is the most popular filter unless you are using CS5. I haven’t really clicked with this filter but it is good for some applications. I always set up on a duplicate layer before running the program so that I can make adjustments. For this Dahlia image I desaturated it before starting and added some contrast and Accented Edges in Photoshop before running the PB filter.
