Adobe’s working on blending modes for HTML

“The better the web, the better tools we can build, and the happier our customers.”

Remember how Adobe’s been working to bring ultrafast image filters to HTML? “More like this, please,” wrote John Gruber.

Well, okay then: now Adobe’s helpingĀ 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.
