Page Layers is a Mac website screenshot app that converts web pages to Photoshop files featuring separate layers for all page elements.
Page Layers allows you to import existing pages into Photoshop and will save you lots of time when re-designing or improving existing web pages.
Just open any page in the embedded browser and save the page as PSD with layers or plain PNG. Every web page element (every image, link, block, …) will be rendered as separate, named layer. Layer groups will be created according to the site structure.
It is the only OS X website screenshot app you will ever need, unique in its capability to capture web pages with layers.
- Fixed a bug where in very rare cases text elements would not be captured when elements were styled with CSS transitions.
Ratings and Reviews
images are misleading..
Silly me.. I saw the screenshots and thought this app had some Photoshop tools.. IT DOES NOT. :(
This app appears to work well, however i do not have Photoshop (nor did i realize i would need to have photoshop) to edit the images this app produces..
Reviews also alluded to the idea that this app will process a whole web tree.. i can’t tell if it does without having Photoshop..
The images show photoshop tools in them, but be aware they are NOT part of this app.. they are screenshots taken OF Photoshop with a file open that was created with this app..
Still useful, but not worth the $34 to me.. Unless i had Photoshop on this computer, but Photoshop charges monthly for it’s software now.. Bad Photoshop!!
Its pretty good, but needs work
Thanks for the app, I do appreciate it! Can be a huge time-saver, just need to fix this one thing...
I am most needing the capture of text as well as the image elements on a page. The editable text feature works only in one instance: when you capture a page from the very top. This is a problem, because its pretty common for pages to have elements like parallax that screws up a full page capture, so you have to chunk the page into viewport captures… its slighly tedious, but understandable.
The editable text is captured when you scan a portion of a page, however, when I click on the text layer in photoshop CC (latest ver), the text disappears! Some kind of weird glitch. If you can fix this one thing, I’ll absolutely 5 star it!
Incredible, even for dynamic sites
Managed to perfectly grab one of the most complicated and dynamic sites I've ever seen, hosted on a finicky CMS platform. Truly amazing. Even the dynamically fed content came through prefectly.
I'd like to see objects that are maked in CSS come through full size, or at least have the mask reflected in the PSD. And I also agree with those who want editable type, even in web font format. Aside from those two things, this app is perfect.
UPDATE: Fantastic update. Thanks!
Update 2: App now seems to crash occasionally when reloading a page for export. Can be quite frustrating. Would also love single page PDF export.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
