Too much noise once you start to fiddle with it.

And Ant, this 'isn't CSI', but at least Peter S and I tried to help instead of just being snarky.
Owwww my feelings...

Oh, you tried to help? There is nothing to be done. You did nothing.

Re: Help with fixing a blurry photo

DRB, welcome to RP!
There is definitely a 6 just right of center and a 5 at the far right. However as the others have pointed there are not enough pixels there to get proper definition. You image resolution is 72 DPI. Your Sony Cybershot was set on the very lowest possible quality image - it is only 640 x 480 pixels for the entire image which means there are very few pixels that make up the whole label. I do not think you can get much more out of this one.
Regards, MM

Re: Help with fixing a blurry photo

mistermonday - thanks that is some great work. I have attached a clearer photo of the serial # tag that I think matches the blurred version.

Thanks again

Re: Help with fixing a blurry photo

DRB, your serial number is: JA3AH86FX3U123758
Added density to the image and sharpened slightly.

Re: Help with fixing a blurry photo

I think Ant hit the nail on the head with his reply. CSI and such have given people an unrealistic idea of what can be done with a photo. If its blurry your sh!t out of luck.
I would also like to add that Ant has been offering some of the best advise on this forum, sure he comes across as an grumpy old professor but he usally hit has more helpfull info in a one liner than any of the paragraph long "Oh your picture is so wonderful and the retouching is amazing" replies.

I wish there was a Ant section where you put up your retouching and he does his notes on it, that would almost be worth a paid subscription type of deal.
