I've been sent a document as an email attachment that I want to print. The problem is that it's in negative form, so the page is black and the text is white. How do I change into a printable format? I have a mac laptop. Can anyone help.?

You could try a copy and paste to a text document before printing and see if that worked.

If you do manage to copy and paste text, don't forget that the text might be coloured white (on a white page), so you would need to select all again and change the colour of the font. Good luck with it.

Or you can go to a site such as

They can change photos of anything into different formats. So you would save your doc to your computer as a photo, then upload it to Lunapic, where you would alter and save it back to your computer. I did it with a beautiful black and white photo of a snowy wood, DBH said it would look more threatening and scary if reversed. It didn't.

You need to look at the top line, go to Filter, then choose Negative.

Thank you!
Lunapic worked, I am so pleased!
