Corel has just announced ParticleShop, a plugin for Photoshop, Lightroom, and PaintShop Pro that allows users to create photo-realistic effects with a set of ‘life-like brushes’.
It is the first time that the company has introduced their brush technology outside of Corel Painter, which also received a recent upgrade to the ‘2016’ edition. ParticleShop can emulate a number of different effects with only a few brushstrokes, making it a powerful tool for the creative photographer.
The software uses Corel’s trademarked Painter Particle brush technology to easily recreate effects and textures such as hair, fabric, fire, smoke, fur, dust, or light. The plugin includes 11 different brushes to get you started, and additional packages can be purchased separately.
ParticleShop costs $50 with variations available for both Mac and PC. Additional brush packs cost $30, and each includes 15 distinct new brushes.
