Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I need download several images of de same location. Each image is supposed to show the data of each layer of OpenStreetMap.

When I activate one layer and try to download that image, it's always the "standard layer".

Can it be done?

I assume that you want to download an image of e.g. the Cycle or Transport layer. I think we have a similar older question here somewhere, but I cannot find it. Answer:

The image export of "share" on osm.org does only output the standard layer. To get an image of the other layers, the easiest way is to take a screenshot of the map part of the webpage (e.g. the free graphics software GIMP can help you with this cropping if you do not have the needed tools yet).

See also exporting-mapquest-open-map and maybe is-it-possible-to-export-an-osm-cycle-map-in-order-to-work-on-it-in-adobe-illustrator.

By the way: in case you want to publish those images, please obey the copyright/license terms of each map individually plus the license of the underlying OSM data.
