    Great brushes to use to my finished art and create a new look, Thank you I would like to do a few and have Bonaker give me ideas on enhancing or go over some of the art I created using the brushes. She may have some ideas to really get me going and create art others would enjoy having.

    Hi, It took me a moment or two to realize that these brushes were meant for Photoshop; I’m still using Photoshop CS6.
    Are the ParticleBrushes ever going to be compatible with smart objects?
    I really like non-destructive images.
    I also use Painter 2015.

      Hello Jim,

      We don’t have anything to report on ParticleShop and Smart Objects just yet; should that change, we will make sure that all our ParticleShop users know!

      As for Painter, the brushes you see here for ParticleShop can also be added to Painter! You can find more information on the Painter Brush Packs page, here:

      Hi Christina, can you confirm which software you are using? The Fine Art brush pack can be used with Corel Painter 2015 and 2016 but is not compatible with Painter Essentials 2015.
