Limit the color depth that your ImagePrinter driver uses to create images to black and white pixels only. This will make smaller image files and save hard drive space. To do so, follow these steps:

1. Expand the Graphics node in the driver hierarchy and click the Vector Graphics node. In the Resolution And Color Depths group, click the Monochrome radio button, and then choose 2 Shades Of Gray from the Color Depth drop-down, as shown in Figure 5.7. Click OK to close the Plotter Configuration Editor.
