I want use the healing tool on a separate, above layer of my picture.

Is there a option to use the healing tool with 'Current & Below' layers?

1 Answer 1


No but you can choose to sample visible layers when using the Healing Tool.

From Gimp 3.13. Heal

Sample merged: If you enable this option, healing is not calculated only from the values of the active layer, but from all visible layers.

If you want to heal only those 2 layers, you can try turning off layers that you do not want to change.
