Please help with this font...
I have tried to find as similar a font as possible. But I am afraid they are still different than the original one. Do you know what font has been used here? The original writing has got very thin letters.
It says Futura Condensed. What's wrong with that?

Well, as you can see, they are all different.
With an image that fuzzy it is almost impossible to say exactly which Futura from which foundry has been used.
As the vertical strokes seem to be thinner than the horizontal this is probably a manually condensed Futura.

OK, but how do you do it manually? Is there a software for it?
Any drawing or image manipulation program that can handle text will do. Photoshop/Illustrator/Paint Shop Pro/Corel Draw/Freehand/Gimp/... too many to mention. One program that most people never think of for doing something like this is good old Microsoft Powerpoint. Almost everybody has it Almost no-one uses it.
Try this; type your text in a textbox, copy the textbos and paste as an enhanced metafile. Now you have a vector image that you can manipulate any way you want. To imitate the text you want you will have to experiment with the letter spacing while in the textbox. It will take time as to a large extend it is trial and error.
