Hello! Here are the easy steps to convert RGB to CMYK color:

If you are using MS Publisher 2000, go Tools > Commercial Printing Tools > Color Printing. Select Process colors (CMYK). To maintain the CMYK color within the image, ll the images are needed to be linked and not embedded. To do this, go to Tools > Commercial Printing Tools > Graphics Manager then highlight the image. Click Link > Browse and look for the original file to link it.

If you are using MS Publisher 2003-7 or later, go to File > Info > Commercial Print Settings > Choose Color Model > Process Colors (CMYK).

If you are using Adobe Photoshop, select Image > Mode > CMYK if the image already exits. If not, select CMYK for the mode before clicking OK.

If you are using Corel Draw 9, select the image > Fill tool > Fill Color Dialog. Choose for the color model CMYK.

If you are using Adobe Illustrator, go to File > Document color mode > CMYK color.

This is to share tips before printing in CMYK, in addition to conversion techniques. Check resolution is minimum 300dpi. Also, set up file in CMYK rather later conversion to CMYK. Furthermore, verify CMYK percentage values. Lastly, make sure the conversion to CMYK is done manually rather allowing printer to print in CMYK.
