Convert Colored PDF to Black and White using Aspose.PDF for .NET - MakeGrayscale method

To my knowledge, MakeGrayScale property is to convert a page to gray scale. I have used the following code:
static string destinationpath = Application.StartupPath + @"\AsposeUtility";
Aspose.Pdf.Document doc = new Aspose.Pdf.Document(sourceMsgPath);
foreach (Page page in doc.Pages)
doc.Save(destinationpath + “ParsedPdf.pdf”);

Is this the right way to save the same pdf doc after making changes to the pages of the pdf ? Also , can you please let me know,if there’s a way to export the existing color pdf to black and white pdf ?


The Page.MakeGrayscale() method is used to convert images on page as grayscaled. However, please try using following code snippet in order to convert whole PDF as grayscaled:

Document document = new Document("input.pdf");
RgbToDeviceGrayConversionStrategy strategy = new RgbToDeviceGrayConversionStrategy();
for (int idxPage = 1; idxPage <= document.Pages.Count; idxPage++)
Aspose.Pdf.Page page = document.Pages[idxPage];
