You SURE you want to use CMYK? There is absolutely NO reason to use CMYK unless youre going to certain high end printers. Other printers prefer to do the conversion themselves, on the fly. I'd say leave it as RGB.

Well, if your image is currently PNG, simply converting it to CMYK probably isnt going to make it suitable for printing on the kind of printer that would require CMYK. There are other things like DPI and color management to be concerned about.

Why not photoshop? That's certainly the easiest. BTW, you already accepted an answer to this question. Not sure why.

Not photoshop, coz im using a PDflib with php to get the pdf, but that one goes with php then i need to use some kinda standalone soft to do that

1. First... weed is right, you "accepted" his answer.

2. Second... To give you the best answer, what is the intention? Is the file intended to be printed on a modern printing press? If yes, then CMYK is the correct "mode". If the intention is for viewing, or an inkjet printer... then RGB would be the best bet.

3. To help you resolve your issue it is difficult with the limit of information provided (platform, intentions, applications used) so the recommendation of Photoshop is just one possible solution, but i know there are a number of applications available but which one is appropriate? I think you should evaluate number 2 above!
