Dear Shuai,

This looks like the author of this picture just increased the default particle size under Visual Elements -> Particles -> Particle Display in the GUI.

If that does not work for you, you could also try to load in a mesh-geometry file of your desired particle shape (see attached screenshot of the Particle types settings panel). You might also find this forum discussion helpful:
