Hello!

Ghostscript with GSview can do the conversion of CMYK. But you need to do one trick. You need to add tiff32nc device to GSview. It's a CMYK TIFF device according to GS manual and it was omited in GSView.
So close GSView and add the following line:
tiff32nc=72,96,150,200,300,600
to [Convert] section of C:\Program Files\Ghostgum\gsview\printer.ini.
Then remove gswin32.ini from C:\WINDOWS\. Then you will be able to print on tiff32nc with any resolution from 72,96,150,200,300,600dpi and you will get real uncompressed CMYK TIFFs.

I have try to use "Ghostscript 8.61" with "GSview 4.9" graphical interface. This software works nice with an RGB TIFF files, but I have not found any way to get the CMYK TIFF file from CMYK PostScript file.
