OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 10, 2015) -

Editors Note: There are three images associated with this Press Release.

Corel® today released ParticleShop™, a new brush plugin for Adobe Photoshop that gives professional users the ability to create incredible images previously only possible in their imaginations - right within Photoshop. Bringing new levels of creative power to Photoshop and Lightroom, the ParticleShop plugin brushes spring, flow, gravitate and glow based on the user's unique expression. With life-like realism and unmatched speed and simplicity, ParticleShop finally gives photographers, designers and illustrators the power to design images that were previously too time-consuming or even impossible to achieve.

"When I first saw ParticleShop in action, I was blown away by the effects that could be created in a matter of minutes," 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."

ParticleShop uses the power of the Corel® Painter® Particle™ brush technology to create specific, photo-realistic effects. Whether users want to add hair, fabric, fire, smoke, fur, dust or lighting to their photos, ParticleShop brushes can create these life-like effects with a simple brushstroke. Built to perform with a pressure-sensitive tablet, touchscreen or mouse, ParticleShop brushes enable users to add their unique artistic enhancements to any image.

"Without question, Painter's Particle brush technology can't be touched by anything else on the market. And while Painter users have been using their favorite art software along with Photoshop for years, with ParticleShop we're bringing the power of Particle brush technology right within Photoshop itself," said Chris Pierce, Product Manager, Corel Painter. "For anyone who has experienced the frustration of trying to achieve the look they want with stamp-like brushes found in other programs, ParticleShop's ability to create fantastic effects with each brushstroke will leave users speechless. How many great ideas have designers left behind because of the effort involved or a looming deadline? With ParticleShop, they can now create these fantastic images in minutes."
