Idea #10:It would be really nice having the ability to create particles such as dust, fog, rain, snow, etc in a more realistic manner than just the scattering function from the Brush Palette, or by mixing different filters with different blends. The Particle Generator should have an slider to control the depth of field, so it will give a feeling of depth and also, a way to load masks, so that way, the particles can exists before the image and also, behind. It would be great for creating a nice feeling of depth (kind of a bokeh effect).--Give me a chance to show you some examples of what I have done by improvising particles and fog about 5 years ago: http://mart1980.deviantart.com/galler...

Don't I wish, but they're not going to be able to be all things to all people. That's what 3rd party software is for, and as you pointed out, Painter has a lot of lovely particle brushes as well as a plug-in for PS, plus there are inexpensive or free apps out there. Flame Painter has a PS connection, too—another interesting feature for us to use.

As convenient as it would be for me to have it all right inside PS, I'd much rather Adobe concentrated on being the best vehicle for using the features we have. That means continuing the good work on managing brushes by extending it to managing Patterns, Styles, Actions, and Swatches. In my lifetime, preferably. In fact, I have a list that's longer than a spoiled kid's list to Santa Claus.<G>

 So long as we have other options, I can live with them improving on what we DO have.
