    So, per a magazines request, I converted some shots to CMYK and saved the RAW file as a tiff. When I converted from RGB nothing changed on the picture. Now, if I open it up in a different graphics program (Iview) it looks all funky. If I open it back up in PS its fine. What is going on?

    A lot can depend upon the various CMYK profiles used by different programs. These profiles tell the program how to convert the RGB colours and you can get variations. If you have done it in PS then it should be OK - but you might be wise to check first with the magazine.

    Yep. CMYK conversions can get ugly if you're not sure about what you're doing... Definitely touch base with the magazine.
