    Open the file in Photoshop, go to Image > Mode > CMYK.

    Tried that, but when I save it, and then place it into indesign, or reopen it in illustrator/photoshop it reverts to RGB.

    If you are going to use it in Indesign or Illustrator, it would probably be best to use jpeg or tiff format. I don't think png was meant for print.

    I agree with  Bong Soo. It would be best to change it to CMYK and save as a .tiff for indesign. A png is not recommended for print.
