Default Converting CMYK images to spot


I work for a printer where we do both digital and offset printing. Quite often clients will bring in a job that is to be printed as one or two colours, but their logo/artwork is in a CMYK build.

My question relates to converting an image that is built in CMYK to spot. Converting to CMYK from spot is very easy, but I am yet to find a method of changing it back the other way apart from sometimes dragging a spot swatch onto the image, which changes the colour, but often creates a screen. The software I am using is InDesign CS2, although I have Photoshop, Illustrator, and Quark 6 here too.

Any help would be appreciated.
