Lighting Effects still not working

In Photoshop 22.4.3. (Mac) the Lighting Effects Filter is still not working. Lights cannot bee seen in the effects window and cannot be manipulated.

Adding a new light does not show the light. The object to be lit appears completely black in the effects window upon evoking the effect. This has been a problem like, forever.

I need the lighting effects filter quite often, but hey, we're happy to be paying for stuff we can't use. (not)

This has been an ongoing issue. This post is from July 27 and Adobe has yet to respond! This isn't good customer service.

What we deserve is to have a *reasonable* timeline expectation of when this will be fixed. My iMac is 2.5 yrs old. It shouldn't be obsolete at this stage.

I think we have our answer in the latest release (22.5), i.e., Lighting Effects will no longer be part of the app!!


And if you still want to use it you need v. 22.2. And you can't have that version and the latest both installed until v. 23.0 gets released at some point!!

Seems Adobe is driving us to purchase another app, i.e., Stager, for $39.99/month (!!), to add lighting effects!!!
