Plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, powered by Corel Painter.

Overview

ParticleShop--a powerful new plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, powered by Corel Painter--creates one-of-a-kind effects. Experience living grab-and-go particle brushes that are easy to use with a pressure sensitive tablet, touchscreen, or mouse, and which allow you to artistically enhance photos, designs, and illustrations with strokes of genius.

Features
  • Explore an array of 11 imaginative brushes--including Debris, Fabric, Fine Art, Fur, Hair, Light, Space, Smoke, and Storm--that will produce awe-inspiring results in no time. No experience, customization, or time-consuming learning is required. Plus, the plugin is only the beginning! Enjoy infinite inspiration with our extra brush packs available for purchase.
  • Evolutionary Brush Technology Powered by Painter - Leave the physics to us; no static stamps here! Experience the fluid strokes of living grab-and-go brushes that spring, flow, gravitate, and glow.
  • Intuitive User Experience - Craft your visual masterpiece with the Adobe Photoshop brush plugin, built to perform with a pressure sensitive tablet, touchscreen, or mouse.
  • No Upgrade Required - Create with the software and hardware you currently own; nothing more to buy or add.
  • Infinite Expression - Achieve mind-blowing effects with physics-based brushes that will follow your every move. Design like a pro with chaotic storms, hairy creatures, flowing gowns, or sci-fi superheroes.

What's new in ParticleShop

Version 1.5.0.108:
  • ParticleShop 1.5 includes new brushes that generate continuous brushstrokes from discrete spots of color or speckles. With these brushes, you can achieve either a speckled, pointillist look or paint with thicker, more pronounced brushstrokes. Some variants have an ‘oily’ look and produce interesting smeary effects.
  • Now if your image is in a floating window when you launch the plug-in, the floating Photoshop window no longer appears above the ParticleShop window, and you can access the plug-in controls as expected.
  • You can now access the Color palette and the Blender tool by using shortcuts.
  • Now if you reinstall ParticleShop or install it on another computer, you can restore the brush packs that you have purchased from within the application.

I am highly pissed off at the ease with which MacUpdate allows people to purchase this software, only to find that MacUpdate does not support downloading that same purchase. A premature technical screw-up at best ... ethically poor business practice at worst.

A welcome plugin for Photoshop with some exciting creative possibilities. However at a limited brush pixel radius of 700 pixel I see it merely as a toy, suitable only for web illustrations and postage stamp designers. Once this limitation gets lifted my rating will go up as well.

Honestly, this is the second let down I receive from Corel. The quality of their applications on the mac is at best questionable. When I open a 24 mega-pixel image in ParticleShop to edit, it keeps crashing if I switch brushes regardless if I start it from LR or Photoshop. I tried several similar images and it is always crashing. I have decent macbook pro with 16GB ram and non of the other photography tools I have ever crashes like this, basically it is unusable! unless they fix it I cannot recommend this to anyone.

It says a plug-in working with Photoshop CS6 Mac, but it is not working here ? The installer does not recognises my Photoshop, only a more recent demo version of Lightroom.

There are some interesting effects in the brush packs, like "Graphic Impact". ( You can have all 12 packs for only $360 , IAPs ; - ) I wonder, is it possible to create the settings that you want by adjusting controls, or are we limited to changing existing presets?

How does this differ from Flame Painter? ( They seem similar. ) Does the same registration work on Windows, because I might want to use it there.

This looks interesting, but for 10$ more you get a free brush pack when you buy direct from Corel, the packs are normally 29$. Do you also get a Brush pack here as well? It also seem not to mentions the brush packs cost an extra 29$ per pack! Any comment from MuPromo would be nice here, I'm tempted to buy this, but some feed back would be nice first.

What would be really good is if Corel packed a couple of Brush Packs together and offered a good deal, I would be very interested, have taken a look at the videos here and it looks very good

There are similarities to Flame Painter, but if the price is right...

I'm still confused. On the Corel website, it states that for $49.99, you get the 11-brush starter pack included (debris, fabric, fine art, fur, hair, etc).
If I purchase the MUPromo, are these not included as well, since they are mentioned in the description above? Clarification would be much appreciated and help in my buying decision. Thanks!

ParticleShop *does* exist on the Corel website—there are even some videos and an FAQ about it— but the download link in the receipt from from MacUpdate is broken and takes one to a page that doesn't exist. I can only hope that MacUpdate discovers this and fixes it soon. I thought perhaps I could download directly from Coral, but I couldn't find a trial to download.

Because I have to leave a star rating, I have no choice but to choose 1/2 star. Will edit (if possible) once I can actually use the product I bought.

It turns out you can find the product here: http://www.painterartist.com/us/particleshop/photoshop-brushes/. There's no trial listed, but I'm downloading an update they have and I'll see if that accepts the activation code I received from MacUpdate.

My issue has NOT been resolved as claimed. The links I have been sent after purchase continue to send me back to this page alone ... not to a site where I can actually download the software.
