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 1.8.2
- Fixed a bug where Page Layers could hang for pages with SVG elements in some cases
Great app; no retina support
I've used this app extensively. It saves so much time, and works very reliably. However, I recently noticed that it doesn't support retina screens. A "1024x768" screenshot on a scaled retina display should actually be 2048x1536 in real pixels. PageLayers just gives me a 1024x768 screenshot (which looks tiny on a retina display). Paparazzi is another full-page screenshot app that handles this correctly. Alas, it doesn't convert to Photoshop layers (the main selling point for many, I'm sure).
don’t believe my eyes
I have wasted so much time without this app…works even better than you think it will (been using photoshop for 10 years)
Saved 2 weeks of work. Just drag and drop to a folder to get everything done? Did not think that it is easy to convert html file to psd.
