It’s been a busy time here at Corel! In addition to Painter 2016, we also released ParticleShop, a new brush plugin that works with Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Corel PaintShop Pro, PHOTO-PAINT and more. Using the power of Painter’s brush technology, ParticleShop allows you to create fantastic, photo-realistic effects with a few simple brush strokes.
Painter users may already be familiar with our Particle brush technology and rest assured, these Particle brushes are still available, and better than ever in the new Painter 2016! But for other users who may be looking to add these incredible effects right within their photo editing application, ParticleShop opens new possibilities with brushes that spring, flow, gravitate and glow based on your unique expression.
With just one brush stroke, you can create realistic hair, fire, fur, light or other effects that previously would have been too time consuming to attempt with a standard photo editor. No brilliant idea will ever be left behind now!
We’re not the only one’s excited about this. The folks at KelbyOne recently shared their thoughts on ParticleShop:
“When I first saw ParticleShop in action, I was blown away by the effects that could be created in a matter of minutes,” said Corey Barker, Education and Curriculum Developer, KelbyOne. “The atmospheric enhancements that can be added to photos are unlike anything I’ve seen before. Without ParticleShop, a designer on a tight deadline or budget might not even attempt to bring these effects to life, but now it’s virtually effortless. ParticleShop will change the way users realize their creative vision.”
But of course, you have to see these effects to believe them. Check out some of our before and after photos below, or download the plugin and take it for a spin.
