Grayscale is the process of changing the colors and shades of your photo and reproducing it into gray images. Converting your document means turning its text and images into black and white.
Reasons to convert your colored PDF document into Grayscale:

2. Reduces the PDF document’s file size: PDF document containing a lot of colored images affects the file size. Converting PDF files to Grayscale would reduce it.
