How do I convert a color PDF to Black & White?


Recommended Posts

I work for a law firm and have received a document containing about 350 pages of medical records. The problem is that they are in color so the file is too large to send as an e-mail attachment, and I can't use an online service to convert to gray scale because it would be a violation of HIPAA rules. I have to beleive there is a way to convert to black and white using Nitro Pro, but I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

Hello @jrbarn1987,

Thank you for reaching out to us through our Community Forums!

At this time, Nitro Pro does not offer an option to change the PDF Creator settings between Color and Monochrome.

If you have Google Chrome, the easiest way to create a Greyscale PDF is to open it up in-browser and use the Google Chrome print settings to select Black and White. You can then print using the Nitro PDF Creator (virtual printer) to recreate the PDF in Black and White.

Thank you for choosing Nitro and I hope this helps!
