How to print document in reverse color, B

HP Photosmart Premium Fax All-in-One Printer - C410a 

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!).   

Thanks

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!

Thank you for the suggestion.  Unfortunately, it didn't work, but it was worth trying.

 

Best regards,

Re: How to print document in reverse color, B

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!

Re: How to print document in reverse color, B

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.

Re: How to print document in reverse color, B

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?
