Hopeless?? Blurry Photo.

This is the first time i am posting, im going start playing with other people photos soon too, this site is just WAY to much fun.
Any way, i have this horrendously blurry photo and i have given up hope for it. Its a piece of equipment used on a printing press ( not that you could tell from the photo). If anyone has any idea or could confirm my suspicions of hopelessness i would be much obliged.

Re: Hopeless?? Blurry Photo.

The photo you attached is way too small to see much of anything.

Re: Hopeless?? Blurry Photo.

Is there any reason you can't crop this for us and then upload the result ? You may want to play with the jpeg compression, if your software allows it. Your first post is only 37 KB which is 1/3 of what is allowed. You can also post a high resolution image externally and simply put the link in your post here. We are used to grabbing external files and viewing them.
Thanks !

It's hopeless. You can't un-blur a photo.

Re: Hopeless?? Blurry Photo.

Thanks Katym for uploading the larger file.
Unfortunately, there is little detail to work with based upon your goal of salvaging a photo of a piece of equipment. There are no programs available that perform those miraculous recoveries, like you see on TV so often.
The numbers could be sharpened and even cleaned manually. But the equipment would not be able to be recovered.
