Wounderful app for taking screenshots with each screen element as a separate layer in a PSD file.

Unfortunately does it not work with the new retina screen. The capture gets cropt (probably for not supporting the scaling that takes place).

Hope there will be an update soon. I have left feedback with the developer, but not heard anything back.

Broken for full webpage capture. No news from the developer. Pretty bad manners. Expensive for something to break permanently in less than a year.

I love this app, use it all the time, but it needs an update for Lion. The masks generated for windows are off (as the shadows have changed in Lion) and the windows in the resulting PSD aren't positioned exactly like they are on screen.

WARNING: This does not appear to work with Safari 5.1.1

Everything on the webpage is just one flat layer. The same as taking a screenshot with Mac OS X. Not editable at, no layers... useless for getting layers from websites in Safari now. Simply doesn't work.

I'm glad the developer has a demo of this, but I also with I hadn't wasted my uncompensated time trying this. The developer should make it clear on this page that Safari no longer works.

Also just tested in all other browsers it says it supports and same thing happened, just one flat layer for the webpage. No layers. Tested in Opera, Camino, Firefox and Chrome.

I tried several apps but LAYERS is simply the best for web publishers.
You can work with any PSD editor on every single element of the screenshot, alpha channel included.

Very easy to use.

Developers don't keep up with technology enough for this to be useful, right when it was released it was fantastic but in this industry and with the way it was coded, it's no longer useful what so ever.

Layers was brilliant - at first. But somewhere along the line - with browser updates, other software updates - it stopped working.
I can no longer use it for the reason I purchased it - to capture an entire web page. It goes through the motions, then announces that the capture has "failed." No explanation as to why or what to do.
Very, very disappointing.

Same here, I just checked supported browser, and they're all old. Dev's are not keeping up with browser technology, really unfortunate.

The first time I used Layers, I was amazed at how well it worked. It is as fast as taking a normal screenshot, yet every layer is captured properly.

The developer is responsive and a delight to deal with. Highly recommended.

I had no idea this was even possible! Absolutely amazing!
I know this isn't much of a review, but I'm just so happy I found this... :-)

I really love this program! I bought it in Macpromo and worths each penny! I think this program is a must have for people who make software Guides & Reviews. It will save time on several situations.

One in special is the function "Capture Front Window". The program captures the active window you seeing and save it in a folder. This image file name is based on your computer time. So, it is possible to create a organized sequence of captured files.

Which means, you can make a Step by Step guide of an Application Setting faster than ever! Thanks "wuonm" for this great app!
