Help in enhancing writing on photo

Can anyone assist me with enhancing the writing on the attached photo. The sweatshirt belongs to my brother - and I am hoping that the writing on his sweatshirt may help me to locate him.

I would be grateful for any assistance.

K Louisa, welcome to RetouchPro. The T-Shirt is a Sun Microsystems T-Shirt. Your image is too small and of low resolution to decipher any of the smaller text on it.
Regards, Murray

Re: Help in enhancing writing on photo

Thank you for helping - I am not sure if it is a Sun microsystem shirt, because the letters look so different.
But I was hoping to increase the small writing somehow - and maybe find out a location.
I have attached the whole picture - Alan had sent it in an email, and it's the only size I have.

Re: Help in enhancing writing on photo

We're assuming you had to reduce the file to fit within this websites 100k size restriction. Can you crop (not reduce) the image so that only the logo is in frame: ie, make only the logo area 100k and then repost it. You could also try sending the picture to Sun's marketing department and ask them to identify the garment.

Thank you repairman.

I will sent the pic to microsystems and see if I get anywhere, before I ask for any more help. I will let you know.

Thank you

Hi everyone:

Sun microsystems came back and said that the shirt is not theirs. I am not sure how to enlarge just the logo to 100 k.

Re: Help in enhancing writing on photo

K Louisa, the data in this image indicates that the size of the original is 2304 x 1728 pixels which should be adequate to see all of the text clearly since it is in focus. The image you uploaded here is only about 1/40th of the size of the original. That may be because it was downsized when you uploaded it or it is possible that the file he sent you was downsized already. To see what size the file actually is, if you have Photoshop do a File>Image>Image Size and check the actual size in the dialog box.
If the file is only 400 x 300 pixels like the one you uploaded, it will be almost impossible to decipher the small text. As for it being a Sun Micro T-Shirt or not, I have attached a sample and you can find a million Sun logos just like it on the net. The logo, the name Sun and below it the word Microsystems seems to have the same positioning and proportions as the one you uploaded. Blue is also a standard Sun color. However it is possible that the log is someone elses.
Regards, Murray

I would just reply to his email and ask him where he is. He may tell you.

To AArtist:

thank you - but I tried - and his email is no longer in effect. Our mother has passed and I thought he may need to know and he also need to sign some documents for the estate.
My brother immigrated from Germany in the early 1980s and later became a citizen and has changed his name, and I have no idea what it is and immigration does not help.
So - it's not so easy.
Thanks for the idea.
Louisa
