HELP!!!!PLEASE!!!! Blurry pic

I have a fishing picture that is very far away of a marlin jumping. When I blow the pic up it gets very blurry. Is there anything I can do with this to blow the picture up and clear it up also? I'm not very familiar with my options...Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am attaching the pic.

marlin

Hi,

I opened the marlin pic in photoshop and what I got was a 4.75" x 5.5" pic on a 29" x 21.5" white background for a file size of 9Mb. What resources do you have? Photoshop etc.? Did you scan it, and how? Most of the 9Mb is being used by the white background. Can you scan just the pic in?

I posted the pic but it said it was too big so I used photoshop to crop it. How should I just reduce the size of the pic? The original is over 600 KB.

file size

Hello again,

Scan you photo in original size.
Open in photoshop. Resize. I usually use 6" x 4" @100 dpi for upload.
Go to file..save for web.. on the top left go to 4up..on the right side of your screen beloe the "Done" bar, click on the black arrow pointing to the right.. select "optimize to file size". enter 100k. select the image closest to 100k (should be about 99.xx) and save. Now you can upload.

Don't know how much better this will appear on low res screen shot however, converted to lab and ran an unsharp mask on the lightness layer and then converted back to rgb and copied the layer and ran a highpass filter over it in overlay mode.

Thank you so much...Any chance of doing the other 3? I really appreciate all this help. This was my first marlin so these pics mean a lot to me.

now, quite honestly, i think this is wrong; but, i did manage to get this result on one of my de-blurring programs. like i say, it may just be a fluke, since looking at the other pics you posted doesnt seem to match up with the marlin there. but, am posting it anyways.

edit: doubled the size for easier viewing
