How do I add ParticleShop to PhotoShop 2015.5 application?

ParticleShop is installed automatically in the plug-in folders of the following applications: Adobe CS5, Adobe CS6, Adobe CC, Corel PHOTO-PAINT X7, Corel PaintShop Pro X7 and Corel PaintShop Pro X8.

To use ParticleShop with other image-editing applications such as PhotoShop 2015.5


1.   Browse to the folder where you installed ParticleShop.

Tip: By default, ParticleShop is installed in X:\Program Files\Corel\ParticleShop where "X" indicates the drive on which ParticleShop is installed.

2.   Create a shortcut to the following file:
     • (Mac OS) Ctrl + click ParticleShop.plugin, and click Make Alias.
     • (Windows) Right-click ParticlePlugin.8bf in the PhotoshopPlugin folder, and click Create Shortcut.

3.   Place the shortcut in the plug-in folder of your image-editing application.

4.  To enable ParticleShop, follow the instructions for enabling plug-ins in your image-editing application.



• For information on enabling plug-ins in Corel PHOTO-PAINT, see Managing plug-ins in the Corel PHOTO-PAINT Help.

• For information on enabling plug-ins in Corel PaintShop Pro, see Setting Plug-in preferences in the Corel PaintShop Pro Help.

    In-app purchase did not work very well. Attempted to buy two brush packs, money was deducted from Paypal account, but only one pack downloaded. Despite having sent an e-mail to customer support and chatting to someone this morning, all I have to show is a ticket number. 

    It states somewhere that complaints will receive a response within twenty-four hours, I suppose the e-mail containing the ticket number is technically speaking a response but....

    How difficult can this be to rectify? Two solutions spring to mind: Refund the money; Send me a download link and instructions for a manual installation of the pack. At the very least contact me and give some old guff but not hearing anything at all from support is really irritating.
