Because the 'fl' generated by mixing the subtractive primaries is not as dense as that of a genuine fl ink (one that absorbs throughout the visible spectrum), four-color printing uses fl ink in addition to the subtractive primaries yellow, magenta and cyan.
CMYK inks combine in proportions to form solid colours; Yellow and Magenta with a bit of Black form a dark maroon, for example.

CMYK by contrast is a subtractive color space.
CMYK is called subtractive because its primary colors are subtracted from white light to produce the resulting color: cyan absorbs red, magenta absorbs green, and yellow absorbs blue.
In the CMYK color space, the values for each of the colors are typically shown as percentages, from 0 to 100.

 Why not Photoshop CMYK for color separations?
However, the whole purpose of CMYK is to change the color values to accommodate the requirements and limitations of printing inks, papers and presses or other printing devices, and the default CMYK space is no exception.
CMYK is a family of color spaces that have been developed and are continually being developed to deal with specific problems in printing color images with mechanical devices using specific inks and specific hardware.
But anyone using the default CMYK separations should be aware that this separation type significantly alters the color information in the file, and it alters the color information to adjust to a commercial printing operation that isn't much like the process of printing gum.

 An Approach to CMYK
In doing to I discovered the most important area for me to consider when using Photoshop for RGB to CMYK conversion for printer or press printing, was the colour space conversion set-up to ensure the correct gamut on printers and printing presses is realised.
There is nothing wrong with working in the CMYK space in Photoshop, as ultimately any printed image will need to be converted to four colours for printing in my world.
You will be able to separate RGB to CMYK without changes to the colour in Photoshop, except for perhaps some unique colours that fall outside the colour gamut of a particular press.

 Adobe Photoshop: Why CMYK?
CMYK color is also known as four-color printing, full-color printing, or process color printing.
In CMYK printing, cyan, magenta, yellow, and fl (the "K") inks are printed on the paper as tiny dots (referred to as a "screen" or "line screen").
The accuracy limitations of CMYK printing are that the results between different printing methods - digital printing versus press printing - can vary, sometimes greatly, depending on the printer's range, how it is calibrated, and the particular color you are trying to print.

“Michael Coffey's CMYK is a sort of domino theory, or primary-color Braille, using word replacement for sounds—that is, his words are as if movable spaces, it being possible for these word-spaces like open, brilliant blanks or Guston blocks to be plugged in elsewhere in space.
Benjamin would have embraced this work as the triumph of a flaneuristic sensibility, yet beyond its meanderings through determining procedures and their strange outcomes CMYK is a powerful, disturbing act upon all that is literature.

 mezzoblue  §  CMYK (for Those Who Do RGB)
But pulling out any of the three from the CMYK combination will produce ugly results, so spot makes use of solid coloured inks that span a wide range outside of what your standard CMYK combination is capable of.
For CMYK, that means each of the four inks must be separated into its own plate and printed individually.
Aside from accuracy in CMYK mode, the most useful function of having an accurate CMYK profile is the out-of-gamut warning you can pull up in Photoshop when working in RGB mode.

I'm on a trial period at a very cool agency and feel like an idiot b/c when i swirch their pantones to cmyk they are not matching up.
Second, Pantone have revised their CMYK matches several times over the last few years and depending on which version of software you use (or how old your pantone swatches are) you can easily get different results for the same colour.
The CMYK splits are treated the same way, therefore you will rarely (if ever) see a match between a coated and uncoated job using the same colours.

 Digital Darkroom Forum: Are all printers CMYK? - photo.net
Much longer answer: CMYK is the standard for basic-grade colour printing (printing as in printing, rather than printing as in photography).
CMYK printing is already an art form; getting decent results depends on the right choice of a large number of printer-specific parameters such as screening patterns.
For photographic printing the driver takes care of all this, but for printing printing the presses used to be dumb, just taking four plates known as colour separations, and the pre-press software had to make the separations in a way that was known to suit the characteristics of the press being used.

 Color Space Fundamentals
Images can then be converted to the CMYK color space by the printer using color management methods that honor profiles if present; this helps preserve the best possible detail and vibrancy.
Digital art that is comprised of spot colors (e.g., special colors: any colors that are not CMYK process colors), generally require conversion to the CMYK color space to enable file use.
In offset lithography, the density of CMYK inks can not be varied in continuous fashion across an image, so a range is produced by means of halftoning.

The CMYK color system is used in printing inks for paper.
This type of color representation is of the form cmyk(C%, M%, Y%, K%), where C, M, Y, and K are the percent values for the cyan, magenta, yellow, and fl values of the color.
Color swatches are defined by using the hexadecimal code for the color and are sorted by the CMYK code.

CMYK Bitmapped images present quite a different story although you've probably already guessed that they have four CHANNELS, and are referred to as 32Bit Bitmaps - 8Bits (C) + 8Bits (M) + 8Bits (Y) + 8Bits (K) = 32 Bits.
When converting an existing RGB bitmapped image to CMYK, in a painting program like PhotoShop, the same processes without the scanner are applied.
If this image was created in a Drawing program and output as CMYK the results would be the same.

However, in the case of CMYK Postscript, ImageMagick doesn't properly support CMS profiles because the CMYK -> RGB conversion is done by Ghostscript rather than ImageMagick.
