When you apply the Special\Masked effect to a particle layer, the particles become a window to a fullscreen background picture.

Place this picture in the 1st texture slot in the MEDIA > Change texture... dialog.

This is a reply to a question by Persiana:

I hope these shows can get you started.

Thanks, that's a truly amazing effect.

If you use 3D blobs instead of 2D circles and play a bit with specularity and transparency you can make it look a lot like a reflection in water.

Hola MIchiel, se podría conseguir, que la abertura que hace la capa de imagen para mostrar una foto, fuese un corazón, un cuadrado, un círculo, etc.

Persiana, this can be done by using a transparent PNG file.

Michiel, creo que no entiendo bien lo que dices, pues no logro hacerlo.

Persiana, when you attach a particle layer to a transparent picture, the particles are only emitted from the non-transparent pixels. In this screenshot I have attached 2 particle layers to a picture of the silhouette of the girl. Both particle layers use the Special\Masked effect with the original photo.

Yes, you can be very creative with the particle layer!
