    Is it black and white? If yes, read on:

    If you're talking about the 3D render lighting effects, they only work when the colour space is RGB, so go to Image, Mode, 16 bit RGB.

    If no, then the mode of the image is in some way incompatible with the filter/effect.

    Hmm, yeh its black and white-that allowed the Lens Flare option to be brought back, however lighting effects are still faded. Bugger, ah well, thanks for trying Rob!
