    You can't be saving CMYK as PNG in Photoshop because PNG doesn't support that color mode. Most likely you've saved as .psd or another format that does support CMYK (you might not notice that when you clikk save you really got a Save AS dialog) without realizing it, and you are placing the original, not your conversion.
