Giovanni,
 
I don' t if my translation is good
With this Plug-in:
1. conversion color to B&W
2. Filter RGB for the separation layers
3. The Plug-in is free
4. It is possible to save the layers (no possible only with Photoshop)
 
I prefer two solution for the work and not only one
 
Philippe

I am missing the point, you are still working on RGB not on CYMK but why do
you use a Plug-in when Photoshop does the perfect separation on RGB?
The point to use sometimes CYMK is that if you really want to get any
specific color on your print and you have not succeded with the 4 layers you
then just select the color, move it to gray scale, buy the exact pigment you
are missing and print it on top.
You can generate endless color of files, meaning you print by "eyesight" or
WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). If you see a silver color you select
your "silver", grayed, invert and print.
