    image enhancment

    Anyone know of some good, perferable free or free demo, image enhancement software? I have a digital picture of some parts that have rather small writing on them that is blurred. I want to be able to de-blur it and maybe even enlarge it a bit to read. I've tried several that I found from a google search but so far eveything i've used just makes it more blurred
    Using Code::Blocks and Windows XP

    Offtopic: I always love those movies where a one-pixel text gets increased to a readable size :P.

    GIMP can help with this. It has a filter that can remove noise, speckles, etc. What you probably want is to perform a sharpen 1 or 2 times on the image.
