Perhaps nothing. Try to use color management.
If you are using RGB images, some bright colors may be out of gamut for
CMYK, so they will need to be "washed out" a bit.

On the other hand, if you're using your own local printer connected to
your computer, you may want to try exporting to screen/web, and let your
computer/printer manage the conversion.
