Create one-of-a-kind effects with powerful Photoshop plugin

Get access to more than 100 new brushes for Photoshop with new plugin ParticleShop.

Today sees the launch of a new ParticleShop, the brush plugin that gives professional photo editors and compositors the tools they need to create incredible images that were unachievable with conventional Photoshop brushes. These brushes will be supported by powerful technologies such as Dynamic Speckles and F-X Effects which were previously only available in Corel Painter.

Thanks to the launch of ParticleShop, Photoshop and Lightroom users can now instantly access over 100 new brushes to create realistic and organic images. Capable of delivering a fast and responsive photo editing experience, the plugin can deliver hand-painted effects that pack a human touch. 

Digital artists can use one brush to create photo-realistic effects that flow across the screen, for example, before switching to another brush that produces strokes that bulge, diffuse, pull and twirl.

"Maybe the deadline was too tight or you simply didn’t have the right tools to get to your vision. The new ParticleShop gives you access to hundreds of unique brushes to apply virtually any effect you can imagine in a more responsive, expressive and organic way,"
