Hello,

I'm working on a FrameMaker document and have to create several PDFs out of it, including one in which the images should be converted from color to grayscale.

Would one of you know which options to select in Distiller 6.0 in order to get grayscale images?

Thanks!

Véronique

Bonjour Véronique,

Je ne crois pas que tu puisses convertir des image couleur en grayscale avec Distiller. Mais, tu peux le faire avec Photoshop.

Conversion de l'intégralité du document Jun 28, 2005

Bonjour Chantal,

En fait, je ne cherche pas à convertir les images à la source, vu que sur le fichier FrameMaker d'origine les images doivent rester en couleur, mais lors de la conversion du fichier FrameMaker en PDF, il faudrait faire en sorte que les images s'affichent en nuances de gris et non plus en couleur.

Véronique

Use the Black & White Distiller option Jun 29, 2005

You can simply create a PostScript file and distill it. (Select the Black & White option on the Paper/Quality tab before you distill it.) This will create a document with grayscale images. You can also install a PostScript printer driver that doesn't support color and print to a PostScript file and distill it.

Hello Olaf,

Thanks a lot for your tip - I'll have a try and let you know!

P.S.: and sorry for moving to French in-between
