Inverting an image is literally inverting all of the colours. Black becomes white and vice versa. It's a common effect, but it can be somewhat disorienting. On a side note, inverting text can often make it unreadable as coloured ink has the tendency to bleed out (or in the case of knockout text, bleed in). Inverting a PDF is done the same way that inverting an image would be.
