Adobe’s working on blending modes for HTML
“The better the web, the better tools we can build, and the happier our customers.”
Well, okay then: now Adobe’s helping bring Photoshop-style blending modes to HTML. The work can enable more beautiful, flexible pages & higher fidelity hand-off from design tools like Photoshop & Illustrator.
A couple of years ago we heard that “CSS is the new Photoshop.” It’s a deliberate overstatement, but the underlying point is true: One can make more & more graphically rich, flexible elements using just markup, not bitmaps. We find that exciting for customers & for the future of Adobe tools.
