What's New

  • 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.
