You need to be able to use CMYK profiles for printing in Lightroom.

I was using a CMYK printer at a major event and I had created a custom ICC profile so we could get good skin tones. I couldn't use the CMYK profile in Lightroom and I couldn't load the profile on the printer.

I was able to install the profile using Colorsync although this caused the colours to be slightly desaturated. I was able to compensate for this by adding some saturation to a preset which was applied in the tethered settings.

I'd like to use the same colour setup for both Mac and Win 7 so I can get consistent colour on CMYK printers.
