Hi, I just started animating with photoshop and I was wondering if there was a way to only activate the onion skin mode on specific layers? When I activate it, it always shows all layers and I couldn't figure anything out in the options either.

See Onion Skin settings.  Changing opacity might help.

Only one, single layer? What is purpose then of automation when you work with single layer?

Just chiming in here to see if anyone has figured it out. It's actually surprising that onion-skinning only the current layer isn't the default, but it seems like there's actually no way to do this. Is that true? That's bananas.

Yeah, looking for that too, I have no choice only to animate without background at all.

Photoshop is actually quite bad for animating. Animate is far better, but its not raster..
