Let’s talk about one-trick pony apps without a price tag. A one-trick pony is an app that pretty much does only one thing, but if it’s something you need to do, the app becomes a valuable arrow in your quiver of apps. If free is in your budget and you’d like to capture webpages and store them as Photoshop layers, WebLayers is the app you need.
It’s very simple to use WebLayers. Open the app, enter a URL in the browser bar just as you would in a browser. The webpage loads, WebLayers analyzes it, creates a snapshot, and exports layered PSD files.
The whole page can be exported and opened in Photoshop (or other image editing app), including a layer for every graphic image.
Considering that WebLayers is free, it comes with a number of logical features. Export the whole page, or select individual elements on the page from the DOM tree.
WebLayers has another option which extracts just the images from a webpage, which makes them easier to find and manage.
Come to think of it, maybe WebLayers isn’t as much of a one-trick pony app as I thought.
Webpages can be saved as a grouped PSD, a flat PSD, or a PLNG file, full size. Not everyone needs a layered PSD from a webpage, but if you do, WebLayers does it for less.
