    This is priceless. Now that I see what you’ve done here, I might add that if the image were still fuzzy, some of the photo improving apps might be able to sharpen the fuzz and make the text more legible.

    Great Tip, is there a way to do this without buying Photoshop?

      Sure, if your image editing software can horizontally flip an image as was demonstrating here then yes.

    Wow! What a difference. Thank you so much for the tip! I have about 6 different records that are just like the one you showed and I know if I could just be able to figure out the letters or words of the document, it may unlock a brick wall for me also. Great tip!
