Aight so the break down is i have a picture or a few of them that i need to read the text on. Ive used up a couple of different options. of course the sharpen, no luck. Changed it from raster to vector in hopes i could zoom it. no luck, worked with live trace via photoshop/illustrator. no luck. Even downloaded a online magnifying glass with semi luck i was able to read a few bits and pieces but i really must read it all. N e help on how to get the text read? im afraid to much info is lost in the scanning and it's not possible but all help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Gonna see what's possible, not confident though in a good result, as most letters seems to be only 2, 3 pixels big. Wich makes it practically impossible (don't believe CSI miami and consorts Very Happy)

yea didn't think there was much hope tbh. Ive been working on it for about 3 hours. and used all my knowledge only been able to make out a few words here and there Sad. Sucks i don't have the original file.

Yeah, fraid this will be a null operation. Too much artefact scattering (due to jpeg compression) and combined with the low resolution, this is gonna be useless to even try.

Nice dog though Very Happy

yea thought so, i tried everything. even converted it to vector based in illustrator. Figured the same. To much info was lost when it was submitted n the forums / image shack.

let me see if I can enlarge it with photozoom has worked for me before and the text was readable, with a little guessing on some things but then it was 4 pages from one of them mini, mini bibles.

Simple concept really.

1. Go to one of the open contests
2. Download the source pic for that contest
3. Chop the pic however you like.
4. Upload your chop to the contest for review and voting
5. Rummage around the site to see what's what while you wait for voting to end.
6. Get addicted to PSC.

Man there is nothing to work with here best I could do for you, found going black and white made it easier to read but then I still cant read it, maybe your eyes are better than mine. Sorry mate best I can do.

not a chance..the only hope is to be looked at by someone who has a clue as to what the text MIGHT be and then extrapolate
