I'm wondering if there is a simple way to print a pdf in black and white without gray scale. I tried to install ImageMagic.exe, but it does not open Pdf.

Forcing grayscale PDF to Black and White?

Thank you in advance.

  • If ImageMagic gave you an error, please edit your question to include that. – Worthwelle Sep 25 '18 at 20:33
  • Hello @Worthwelle, the software does not support the pdf format. – Federica Guidotti Sep 25 '18 at 20:35
  • Going by your error, it looks like it's not finding Ghostscript correctly. Can you verify that Ghostscript is installed and added to your PATH variable correctly? – Worthwelle Sep 25 '18 at 20:52
  • @Worthwelle, ok now I installed Ghostscript. When I open pdf there is not the image, but a chessboard. I tried also to save the image in Pdf as a TIFF, in this way it works, but I don't know how convert it in black. – Federica Guidotti Sep 25 '18 at 20:58
