    How to flatten a layer with transfer modes intact?

      That might not be the best description, but here's the issue.  I have a PSD from a designer where they created icons using "darken" or "multiply" modes over a background, such as this:

      However, since it will get on a CSS gradient,  I need to extract the icons as a transparent PNG file, which of course gets me this in the web browser:

      I can't just flatten it with the background, since the background is a gradient AND I need to be able to adjust the image's position in HTML.  Also there, are several instances of this situation in the design.  The best way to do this is to have a transparent PNG of each icon.  But, how can I first get the artwork at least close to the way it appears in Photoshop (in darken mode over red)?
