Dynamically Blending Images with imgix

Layer blending is an image editing feature commonly used to blend together multiple images, with a variety of possible transformations. imgix supports the ability to perform such operations with the blend parameter, enabling you to dynamically layer and blend images using a variety of options.

Download Behavior for Linked Images


Typically, when an image is linked to on a web page, it will open in a new window or navigate away from the current site. However, this is not always the desired result. The user’s expectation may be that the image would actually download to their computer. To handle such cases, imgix customers can now set the linked image URLs with the download dl parameter. This modifies the HTTP headers of that image, forcing a web browser to download it instead of opening it in a web browser.
