Title: Acrobat - PitStop 08 - CS4
Post by: WharfRat on October 06, 2008, 10:50:47 PM
I'm running CS4 with Acrobat 9 and PitStop 08 update 2
Basically the update 2 is just that
and looks and feels the same as 08.
Today -
for the life of me -
I couldn't find the "button" to simply
select an image and change (convert) it to grayscale.
( I couldn't even find a Pitstop "action" to do it)
I could open the pix in Photoshop and change to grayscale
(which I prefer anyway)
but ...
does anyone know where that is hiding in PitStop 08?

Thanks,
  MSD

Sorry for the cross post - but I am hoping to hear of a solution by morning

Select Object arrow, select photo which then brings up enfocus inspector make sure you are in the fill and stroke and there is the little fly out menu on the right that you can pick convert to gray.  I just tried it and it worked for me.  One of the really smart people here might know something different. This one intrigued me to "test" it though.  See, now I've learned something new too.

Hey thanks - I never think to look for flyouts.
I did find the independent pallet for the same selections
but
as usual ... the conversion sucked.
So -
open in PS - convert and refine - and
place back into the PDF...
as usual.

Thanks,
