Page Layers - Website screenshots with layers
By Ralf Ebert
Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
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.
What's New in Version 1.9.1
- Improved layer order for table elements - table rows and cells are now ordered from top to bottom / from left to right
- Fixed a bug where content from :after and :before pseudo elements could be visible for other elements
- Fixed a bug where text would not be placed properly when rendering a retina screenshot with "Generate text layers" activated
- Fixed a bug where table borders would be rendered for all table cells for tables formatted with Bootstrap CSS / tables that use the CSS attribute border-collapse
OMG- thank you, thank you thank you thank you
Seriously, this is the first time I have ever taken the time to write a review…your software is genius! Being able to not just screenshot a website but break it down and access its components is a lifesaver esp when somehow you misplaced or lost the original files and content…No more copying and pasting…the hours you have saved me …all I can say to your team of engineers is bless you!
In addition, I could see how your software can really make graphic designers understand how to build files for programmers. Kudos to you all for making coming up with this software and making it so intuitive and easy for endusers. Well worth every dollar!
Absolutely indispensable. Needed to submit a PSD when I already had the html
Today I had to convert a finished Muse html site into a set of PSD layers for my client’s template-based hosting service. I realize this sounds quite backwards, but I used Muse to create a quick, comprehensive “live" mockup on Business Catalyst for approval. But to hand the work over to the host developers, I was faced with the agony and irony of having to re- or should I say de-construct all the pages into PSD layers so they could rebuild the site their way.
I literally found this app JUST in time TODAY! Page Layers is now doing in minutes what I’ve been dreading for weeks. Including text layers! Absolutely awesome!
Stellar! A Must have for Graphic & UI Designers & Multi-talented Freelancer and
UPDATED REVIEW (March 7, 2015):
Still completely awesome. It is nearly magical that Page Layers just with in seconds everytime just converts a website to an extremely well organized and very layered psd. Separating body layers from text, text from images and so on and so on. This app is just priceless.
I’ve also had it for quite some time. I want to say going on 2 years now and I’ve never experienced a bug.
Oh, and support. I just emailed Ralf and within 2 blinks of an eye he responded!!!
Not every author is cool and quick as their plugins and products, but Ralf defintely is!
