    Default Adobe 8 Pro

    So I have this program but I'm clueless on how to use it. Anyways, my stupid professor decided it would be nice to have the slides with a nice blue background and yellow font. I however, disagree.

    Anyway I can change the colors to be white background and black font? I looked through the Help but it was kind of confusing ... =\

    You could try Highlighting the text, it might make it easier to read.

    Oh, well I'm not even sure if you can do that using adobe reader. Maybe if you switch the extension to .doc and change the font color using Microsoft Word it will work.

    Errh.. Word or Powerpoint won't open PDFs by default (I don't know if there are 3rd party apps that makes this possible).

    Anyways, Word documents and PDFs aren't the same. Why don't you ask your lecturer for the PPT slides? I had the same problem before, and since the printer is black and white.. it turns out crappy. So I got hold of the PPT slides...

    I know Adobe Reader cannot do that, that's why I said I have Adobe 8 Pro. I guess I'll ask the lecturer if he has the PP version. Who the fuck makes their slides with blue background and yellow font?!

    PDF is essentially a collection of pictures. There is a utility called ImageMagick that will break a PDF into separate Jpegs or whatever, problem is it's command line and takes some getting used to. Extremely powerful set of utilities though... and used by quite a few programs as a backend. So, if your not comfortable with command line, I'm sure there's probably a gui program out there that will do it, if not by it's own algorithm, then my ImageMagick backend.

    Once they're JPEGs, then just invert the colors or use bucket fill or something.

    If all you really want to do is print them though... why not just go 'file' -> 'Print' and when the print dialog box comes up, go to the properties of your printer and flip it over to gray scale. Worst case senario, you get a black background with white text (which really only sucks on ink... so use econ-fast or whatever your printer calls it).

    The whole faculty of Computer Science at Adelaide Uni is one of them, but at least they put up black and white versions as well...
    And I guess rather than getting Adobe 8 to do it, might be easier just to ask them for the slides...
    Although it can be a pain, coz for some reason I have to convert the slides one by one and it was frieking 50something pages long.

    And.. Are you sure it's a collection of images vol..? If it is, it's not jpg, coz most of them are scalable (and therefore at least vector in nature).
    OK, wiki-ed it. Not a collection of images. Contains various types of data streams.

    Uhh... vector is an image type. Yes, it can contain a number of streams, sort of like a video container like MKV (losely saying sorta there), but they are primarily made up of vector, raster, and text objects. That makes them convertible. But, yeah... technically your right, there's a lot more to them than just the 3 elements... they're just all I care about.

    Oh, and here's the imagemagick command syntax (I think...):
    [code]Convert saidPDF.pdf saidJPG.jpg[/code]
    if the pdf is test.pdf, it should come out test.jpg.0, test.jpg.1, etc... for each page of the PDF.

    look up the manual on Convert to get additional options.

    A way that I would probably do to make things easier, is use OCR text recognition (part of Adobe Acrobat) and then just copy and paste stuff to a word document or somthing and print that out.

    you can also try messing with the export options in the file menu (you dont need image magik...)
