    why does pantone colors switch between rgb and cmyk in photoshop

    Graphix-buff

      I am using Photoshop CS6 and selecting pantone colors while in RGB mode.  I confirm the colors and then select convert to CMYK mode and the colors on screen change as I guess is to be expected but when I confirm the colors with the dropper they have now all changed to different but similar pantone colors.  When I go to change them to the original pantone colors I select the library color and use the paint bucket to apply them but they remain the same wrong pantone color.  Why is this happening?

       

      Thanks
