What happens when you convert RGB to CMYK?

The underlying color model in Photoshop is neither RGB nor CMYK but LAB. It has the widest gamut, which means it can hold more color values than any other model. Of the two other models, RGB has more color values than CMYK does. When you convert from RGB to CMYK, the program first "maps" the RGB values into the LAB colorspace. It then maps the LAB values into the CMYK colorspace. Now, for REAL entertainment...take a pure RGB blue, or a pure RGB green, and attempt to map it into CMYK colorspace. It doesn't work at all. Red maps fine, but the other two go straight to hell.

How do you convert CMYK colors to TPX pantone?

This is a complicated process. To begin, TPX in Pantone stands for Textile Paper Extended. These colors are meant for printing on fabric. When one has a CMYK image in Photoshop the colors can not just be converted. The only way to incorporate spot color (Pantone) into a rasterized CMYK image is as an extra plate, or spot color channel in Photoshop. One can also create a monotone, duotone or tritone from a CMYK image. To do this the image can not remain in CMYK mode. The process is much easier to do in a vector file. Using the eye dropper or color picker tool in Photoshop one can measure the amount of cyan, magenta, yellow and black in a specific area. Using the swatches palette open the appropriate Pantone library, find the desired color and measure the CMYK content in the same manner. This process will reveal the CMYK equivalent for that specific color.

What does CMYK represent?

How can you find the CMYK values for a pantone color?

By "Pantone Color," you must be referring to Pantone Solid or Pantone Spot Color, because Pantone is the brand of a private company that sets the international standard for print colors. "Pantone" does not indicate that something is not CMYK.The mentioned company, Pantone, produces a swatch book called Pantone Bridge, and has the spot color on one column, and the CMYK process color on the other column so that you can see the color shift between solid and CMYK, as well as the CMYK breakdown. These swatch books are available online or in a local graphics supply store.

Why is it necessary to convert image of a particular color mode into CMYK mode. Can any image be defined in two colors?

CMYK color mode is used for print and does not have as wide of a color gamut as RGB (video screens). So your neon blue will turn into a dull grey blue when converting to CMYK, or your beautiful flower on your computer screen will turn into a vintage photograph in CMYK. (Those are exaggerated examples). By converting to CMYK, you will get a closer preview of what the image will look like once it's printed and you can make adjustments before printing. But be careful because your screen is not accurately representing the printed colors.
