Gimp has some support for CYMK colour mode in the sense that you can

But if you need more advanced CYMK tools, you may have a look at
either krita (the KDE image tool) or cinepaint.
In terms of color management, Cinepaint and GIMP are more or less on a
par now (at least, in the 2.3 series). Neither has native CMYK editing,
to my knowledge.
Well, I have not had a look at cinepaint for a while (I am not in the
film industry, so it is not relevant for my use), so I am ready to
Krita's been adding functionality very fast recently - they now have
La*b*, CMYK and RGBA, and apparently layer groups are going in soon. I
haven't used any later versions yet.

What would be nice for Krita/Gimp/ggl/gegl/whatever would be to also
provide the L*u*v* space (CIELUV) because it is more relevant in TV
industry than L*a*b* (see Hunt, "measuring colour", p66).
And, just to be nitpicking, it is L*a*b* not La*b*. L is the luminance.
the CIELAB space is based on the lightness L*. ;)
