    I wanted to know, if I'm shooting RAW is there any way to apply the art filters to change pictures already taken? Does Olympus or Panasonic software let you do this? I have an E-PL2, G5 and GH3 and would like to be able to do this some way. I do have lightroom and topaz labs plus some other plugin's, but it would be nice to have these as presets or plugin's.

    Yes, the Olympus software allows you to do this with the .ORF files. I can't speak in regard to the Panasonic

    Most of the art filters have presets in LR, you can search for them.
    A good sources are this sites
    Tilt-Shift Simulation in Lightroom » Lightroom Secrets | Lightroom Secrets

    100 Free Lightroom Presets (And How to Make Your Own)

    If you miss any just make a search with the filter name + lightroom preset.
    I found that it usually works.

    The Olympus software can do it. In fact, the camera itself can do it after the fact.

    I personally don't like using the in-camera filters even if they do work on RAW files. On the other hand I love playing with filter apps on my iPad or Lightroom/Photoshop on my Mac.

    A simple and cheap{it's free!} app is Snapseed. Been having lots of fun using it and it is easy to use. Some of the filters are very strong{the grunge and drama} but for some pics give very cool results.

    I frequently apply the art filters to the RAW files in Olympus Viewer 2 if I decide it might look good, because I'm still only using Olympus Viewer 2. In camera is good if you need to show somebody there & then the after effect to a photo already taken, but other than taking it live (but saving JPEG & RAW) it is better to try the other filters & effects later on the computer.
