Particle Tracer is a plugin for Adobe Photoshop that traces particle trajectories.


Particle Tracer’s powerful features are easy to use. Particles can be easily set up by the tens, hundreds or thousands with a respective lifespan. Randomness can be added to the lifespans for truly natural results.


A step size feature allows for fine-tuning of the path density along with gamma correction.


Important features such as particle brightness and accompanying randomness add a touch of chaos to the particle system. Particle color randomization provides subtle or drastic color deviation.


Particle-dependent coloring features such as increasing brightness, decreasing brightness or both allow particles to eerily fade out and decay while various color mapping modes including single color, double color and spectral color provide a limitless number of beautiful coloring techniques. Additionally, particles can be colored by particle ID or lifespan.
