It's some text about the most famous writers from Romania.
Can you help me?

Ditto. Tried Focus Magic and Genuine Fractals. Not enough pixels.

CTH,

Sorry, but the others are correct... not enough pixels. Your image has plenty; there simply aren't enough pixels contained within the boundaries of each letter. As you zoom in, you start to see the problem. An entire letter may be contained in only four pixels. I've attached a zoom to show you - this is an unaltered version, just zoomed in only. The camera did not have enough internal resolution to provide more pixels for that small an area. Hence, some letters cover 4 pixels, some 2. Using an algorithm to add pixels yields nothing either. It simply builds more gray beside gray and keeps on going... you end up with a globby mess.

There are some forensic plug-ins for Photoshop that essentially combine many PS commands into a single action. These work faster and are more repeatable, but not better.

So, I'd say you'll have to try again some day.
