Operating System: Windows 7 64bit
I want to convert a .PDF file from Black-&-White to White-&-Black. A 303 page manual I need to print has black pages and white ink (ouch!).

I believe this can be done in adobe reader via preferences and then accessibility. Give it a shot and let us know if it helps.
Best of Luck!

Hmm, I found this link that has a post indicating most PDFs can be inverted using a well rounded image editing software like Photoshop or Gimp(Free). If you decide to go that route here are the steps from that0n3guy's post:
"-Download and install gimp
-Open the pdf with gimp: File -> open ->file.pdf
An import from pdf screen will pop up. You can only import one page at a time (well.. you can do multiples, but it puts it in its own layer... ). I usually only up the resolution to about 150 or 200 pixels/inch.
- Invert the colors: Colors -> Invert
- Save the image as a tiff -> file -> save as
done" -- The post is somewhat dated so more functionality could have been added to handle multiple pages.
Best of Luck!

You're right, this would work. Same using Photoshop. But it is still one page (photo) at a time. I'm going to pick-and-choose the which ones I need and go from there. If I do find something, I'll try to pass that on.
And again, thanks to all.

I downloaded GIMP and AVIRA detected adware or a virus so I had to remove it. Tried it again, downloaded GIMP, same result. Any alternative ways to inverse blueprints to print as black on white background?
