go to the file node with the bum map applied
in the attribute editor there shod be to boxes at the top with arrows in boxes
click these until u get to bumb map depth tere should be a slider just reverse this number ie if it was 1.2 make it -1.2 and visa versa
or u gan take the map to photoshop and invert the colours so black becomes white ect
