Corel Grows Mac Offerings with Artistic Photo Editing, Powered by AfterShot and ParticleShop Plugin for Photoshop

COLOGNE, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 19, 2016 -- Editors note: There are three images accompanying this press release.

Kicking off Photokina 2016, Corel has released an update to AfterShot™ Pro 3 and AfterShot™ 3 bringing all-new compatibility with the ParticleShop™ photo-effects plugin for Photoshop. Available on both Mac and Windows, this marks the first time Mac-based photographers can integrate ParticleShop with their Corel photo workflow. Corel delivers on this new compatibility with the Photo Brush Bundle, combining the high-performance processing power of AfterShot with ParticleShop, the only plugin to deliver unique, artistic effects with Corel® Painter® Particle™ Brush technology.

"ParticleShop has been a game changer for photographers and artists, enabling them to easily design fantastic images with true photo realism that was previously too time-consuming or even impossible to create. We're excited to introduce more users - especially those on the Mac - to this complete Corel solution that delivers unlimited artistic creativity together with the outstanding photo processing power of AfterShot," said Greg Wood, Senior Product Director for Corel Photo.

New Photo Brush Bundle for Mac & Windows

For anyone looking to get started with RAW photo editing and stunning creative effects, the Photo Brush Bundle includes AfterShot 3, ParticleShop, and the Light It Up and Fantasy Brush Packs for a total of 40+ brushes. Offering a savings of more than 30%, the Photo Brush Bundle is the most affordable way to discover the versatility of RAW photography, while adding the artistic power of ParticleShop to any photo editing workflow.

ParticleShop enables photographers, artists and designers to create incredible images previously only possible in their imaginations. ParticleShop brings new levels of creativity with brushes that spring, flow, gravitate and glow based on the user's unique expression.

Corel AfterShot Pro 3 is the industry's fastest photo editing and organization software that's built to deliver on three core competencies: outstanding performance, superior productivity, and freedom of choice. This powerful RAW photo software enables photographers to organize thousands, cull from hundreds, and perfect a single photo.

New AfterShot 3.1 Update Enables New Creative Options

The free 3.1 update for AfterShot Pro 3 and AfterShot 3 now offers support for ParticleShop, enabling AfterShot users to explore a new world of creative possibilities. Photographers can choose to use ParticleShop's amazing and life-like effects directly in AfterShot without needing to send the image to an external photo editor like PaintShop® Pro or Photoshop first.

Prior to this update, ParticleShop was only available for use with Photoshop, Lightroom, CorelDRAW® and Corel PaintShop® Pro.

New ParticleShop Brush Packs Now Available

Corel also announces that it has recently released two new ParticleShop Brush Packs - Particle Crawlers and Combustion - each packed with 15 new brushes to further enhance your creative experience. ParticleShop Brush Packs make it simple to add photo-realistic effects in a variety of styles that include hair, fabric, fire, smoke, fur, dust, clouds, lighting, fantasy and more.
