Kevin--

One possiblity is to set the printer to "B&W" when you print the
hardcopy version.

Another (and what I do) is let my Printing company do the conversion
from a color PDF.

Subject: PDF (Color to B/W?)


Our content development team produces a myriad of training materials.
Our printed materials are produced via Frame 7.2. The graphics are
grayscale TIF files (which works best in print production). In many
cases, I am presented with color graphics (JPG or PNG files), which I
convert to the grayscale TIF format, then import into Frame. The final
PDF is created using Distiller and everything is hunky-dory, but we are
now maintaining two versions of the same graphic - one in PNG or JPG and
one in TIF.
What we'd ultimately like to do is single-source the color graphic files
and convert them to grayscale TIF when the PDF is generated. Is there
anyway to automate this process?
Thanks for any and all feedback!
