How to Convert a PDF to Black and White in Adobe Acrobat Pro

You sometimes want your PDF to be in GreyScale or black and white as it were. It can make it look more uniform, or if you had a flaky scanned document and the color looks off.


Anyway, it is quite easy to convert a document to Black and White in Acrobat Pro 9.

1) Open document. Duh.

2) Click Window –> Preproduction –> PreFlight

3) CLick the down arrow under PDF Fixups.

4) CLick the Convert to grayscal row/option.

5) CLick Analyze and Fix(bottom right hand corner).

6) Pick new filename. Voila! You are done.


Happy coding…err..converting?
