Is there a premium version?

Not yet, but I’m working on it.  Let me know if you have any suggestions in the support forum

Will it work with my theme?

Yes, Particle Background WP was built from the ground up to offer many ways to add particle effects to any theme.  There are simple toggles to add particles to your home page or blog page.  You can also add particles using a shortcode, or via the extremely flexible custom CSS selector.

Will this slow down my website?

The plugin was designed by an expereienced plugin developer, using WordPress best practices, and all code loaded is kept to the absolute minimum. Your website may load much faster if you replace large image backgrounds with particles instead!
