Adobe has reintroduced the “Oil Filter” with Photoshop CC 2015.1 (November 2015 release), so these actions are also compatible with Photoshop CC as well. Make sure to update to the latest version of Photoshop CC.
For more info about the update, please check out this article:
- If you have the latest version of Photoshop installed, please check to see if the “Oil Filter” is grayed out, if it is, it is very important that you watch this video and follow the instructions https://youtu.be/tXNhthq-MZQ because if the filter is greyed out the actions won’t work and will give you errors.
The actions work well on photos that are between 600px and 2000px. Since each photo is different, you will need to add adjustment layers, ‘selective colour’, ‘colour balance’, ‘curves’ etc. as seen in the tutorial I posted on YouTube (you will find the link in the downloaded file).
For bigger photos and/or if you feel that you want the effect to be more accentuated, run the actions, when they’re done edit the settings and once you are satisfied merge all the layers and create a background from your layer (Layer > New > Background from layer). Should this method cause the actions to give you errors, then proceed by saving the result on your pc and then load it again in photoshop and then run the actions again.
