How to print black and white/ grayscale in Preview

Hi, I'm wondering how do you print grayscale or black and white when printing PDF files in Preview? (Im running Snow leopard)

Ive been racking my brains! Also I use an HP C4780 printer

In the window there will be a drop-down bar that says "Preview". Click on it, and from the list of options choose "Paper Type/ Quality."

Several drop-down bars will appear, click on the one that is next to "Color:"

From the list of options, choose "Grayscale."

Click "Print" at the bottom of the window.

Hope this helps.
