    That is a CHALLENGE in captital letters.
    I'll move this to the Photoshop Challenges for you, CFRacer, ok?

    bowronfam3's go is a valiant attempt, but I don't think you're going to be able to get much out of this. The tonal range is so compressed that you don't really have an 8-bit file anymore. If you use the full range, there are 255 different levels each of red, green, and blue. That file has only 70 of each, which is less than a third of what it should be.

    Absolutly no amount of photoshop can fix that disaster of an image.

    So many people misunderstand photoshop thinking that it's magical software that could cure cancer if there was such a plug in for it. Photoshop may be powerful software, but it CANNOT rescue that.

    this is about as good as you're going to get, but it's still crap quality:
