ParticleShop delivers incredible, life-like brushes to Adobe and Corel photo apps

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.

    This is all very good but has Corel got any plans to make products for Ubuntu, Linux Mint or any Linux distros?

    Microsoft’s Windows 10 has made people look fr alternatives and Linux is the obvious choice. It is time Corel takes advantage of this before Adobe goes there.

    Thank you.

    It is nice to see particle brushes coming to Photoshop! I think it is off to a nice start.

    I feel that the brush packs are over-priced (if one gets them all it is almost the price of the whole Painter application) and the editing capabilities are very limited (How about making your own?). And the somewhat outdated limit of 750px radius also limits the uses. So there is definitely room for improvements.

    There is also a bug – if you have Application Frame enabled in Photoshop, the Plugin will be covered up by all the project windows and it won’t be possible to click it into the foreground. You have to turn off Application Frame in PS and then use the Particleshop

    Next I would really love to see a good image hose feature for Photoshop!

      Hi there,

      Thank you so much for your feedback. The reason we priced ParticleShop the way we did was so that users have the choice of which brushes to buy. If they only need a few brush packs, they can purchase them individually, rather than buying them all at once.

      We will pass your feedback along to our team for future consideration.

      Yup, that’s what I do, make my own! Much cheaper and not that hard to do.

    Hi, I just purchased the Particle Brush plug-in for Photoshop/Lightroom. I use a lot of plugins; I thought this one was going to be ready for prime-time.
    Additional brushes are really over-priced or at least you should be able to create your own.
    The 750px limit on the brush is WAY too small; it should be at least 10 times larger.
    I use smart objects most of the time while editing and enhancing my photography; the Particle Brush plug-in does not work with smart objects. I guess I will have to bring my images that are smart objects into Painter 16 for the time-being. Thanks
