Animalroam: well, logos.

Paine: And then probably a stroke of some sort

Lesnick: Animalroam: around the image itself, as opposed around the img element?

Markie: Animalroam: how much support are you after? latest browsers only?

Affelt: Btw chrome mobile also does filters

Blomquist: Because what you really want on a tiny device is more client-side load

Yoeckel: Bprompt, yes, later versions

Hornberger: Reisio, so are you suggesting to make an svg?

Borden: Bprompt, the progid syntax does not seem to work on edge

Hollamon: Http://

Greet: Animalroam: for bitmaps, I don’t see much relief from either css filters or compositing and masking, neither of them do “edge detection”, which is what you’re after, they only change the hue or blend it about

Cabreja: Animalroam: yes, I think Edge has shed a few non-standard things from IE

Succop: Animalroam: why you need the effect anyway? I mean, DTP wise, is not like you’re doomed to use it or be damned, surely you can get “emphasis” using a different compatible effect

Febbraio: Bprompt, when user clicks on img, it should glow

Kaus: Animalroam: got that, are you doomed to use that effect or be damned? can it be something else?

Chernick: Well, it would definitely make it cooler, but it’s not absolutely mandatory

Olcott: Animalroam: well. there’s no relief css wise for it, there’s no “edge detection” for bitmaps, you could, as suggested, do so with svg’s though, ***uming the outter element is one solid vector component

Foxe: Seems like canvas is also feasible

Beidleman: Animalroam: well, as far as “cooler”, some time ago some folks found blink to be “cool”, shortly after it wasn’t too cool though =

Luera: Which one do you think would be better

Diedricks: Animalroam: canvas is bitmap, doubt that

Lull: Bprompt, something like

Krall: Animalroam: you can do all those with css box-shadow, simple to do, you can even make it really fancy, since box-shadow does multiple shadows, BUT, those shown there in the canvas, are “drawn” by canvas line subroutines, they’re not really bitmaps per se, in the sense that is a photographic image, the issue isn’t with rectangles or other shapes, the issue is with photographic ones

Kliebert: Bprompt, but in canvas you can make it go around the object instead of being it around the img element like in css box-shadow

Benanti: Animalroam: sure, and css can do that on any element, no need for canvas for that, the issue arises when you want to do that to photographic images edges

Gettis: Bprompt, for the dice, css can’t do that can it?

Litaker: Animalroam: the dice picture, is an img, not a canvas object

Antenucci: Animalroam: as far as can css do that, well, we’re back to square one, css thus far, doesn’t do “edge detection” on bitmaps

Louwagie: Hmm, so svg would be best bet?

Jaksic: Animalroam: for that, yes, but svg is not a photo, so you’d need to draw it or have it drawn, and then you can apply css to the svg outer edge

Villerreal: Would that be a problem if a website logo is svg?

Adami: Animalroam: if you need some effect on the photo image, nevermind the glowing effect, css wise, there’s no property to produce it, so unless you apply the glow to the photo in the graphic application, I’d say, use something else, is not like users are going to say, “oh my gosh, no glowinng effect, I’m outta here”, you can produce emphasis on an element in many ways, even with just a lousy arrow on its side

Stephanski: Animalroam: logo’s by definition are “drawing”, so an svg is perfect for logos

Seufer: Hmm, why are most of the logos I see on websites pngs?

Ueki: Pngs maintain full quality

Fabozzi: Animalroam: well, logos are just logos, you could use a gif or jpeg or png for one, sure, they’re still drawing, an svg works far better since its vector-based, but it’s up to the website, they could use either, a png is a “cheap” way to get it done
