It certainly doesn't. Photos are taken in an RGB color space. It makes
sense to do some processing in other color spaces such as LAB. But CMYK
is totally inadequate for manipulating photos.
Being able to do a color separation to CMYK is sometimes required in
order to prepare an image for print (even though the printer can almost
always do this much better). Editing an image in CMYK is not required
