This question already has an answer here:

I am getting my maps from QGIS ready for publication in a journal. The journal requires colour images to be tif format in the CMYK colour space. I understand how to save images as tif, but I cannot see a way to see whether I am saving them in the right colour space. Can anyone help me??

According to this answer to a similar question, QGIS doesn't have a way to set colorspace right now, due to its reliance on Qt libraries. A little more info is in this thread on the QGIS developer list.
