I have recently installed the new Adobe Photoshop CC on my computer but I can't find the smart sharpen filter in my filters list. Why? What could be the problem?

Are the other sharpening options all there, e.g. Unsharp Mask? – MikeW Feb 3 '14 at 18:51
Also, I'm not sure if smart sharpen has any requirements for the color mode (RBG, CMYK, Lab) or image depth (8-bit, 16-bit) etc. I know that Smart Sharpen is still a feature in Photoshop CC, so the option should be there for sure – MikeW Feb 3 '14 at 19:00
MikeW has a good point. Create a new empty image in RGB with 8-bit depth, and check if you have it. – TFuto Feb 3 '14 at 21:07
You ARE looking under Filter -> Sharpen -> Smart Sharpen aren't you? Is it missing or merely grayed out? – BobT Feb 10 '14 at 19:49
