If you want legibility, I would try adjusting the curve (however
photoshop calls that), trying to enhance a portion of the "greys".
Hopefully the letters are just a bit darker, so the idea is to increase
the contrast between the letters and the surrounding area.


Better to simply photograph it in the first place to enhance the
contrast (without going overboard).

One other suggestion if... workable..

Wetting down the surface of the tombstone
often (depending on the material and the
ambient light, etc.) makes the etchings
more visible.

Next time you do so, play this music in your head.

It's so strange that you make this post now. If you read the comments,
Peter, you'll understand why. I've also added a link to a photograph of
my son's memorial.

It's probably also illegal to **** on a tombstone. Though one of my
ex-wives said she was going to pour vodka on my gravečbut to avoid
waste she was going to drink it first. Sadly for her, I outlived her.

I tried with the second of those there (big grey stone to the right),
but there is not enough resolution to work. Just 8 Mpix (3264√ó2448 pixels).
