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!
Works Needs more control
This app does work better than the others in its category, but it lacks control. It would be nice to be able to be more selective as to what gets included as a layer and what is composited within the parent element. It would also be nice to have better control of naming the resulting layers. Also, there needs to be a button to clear the cache so if you are developing an app and you make a change, it's reflected. Finally, they don't seem to respond to customer service requests.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
