Fix a fuzzy pic??

I have a picture I really like but it is fuzzy. I was wondering there is a way to fix or make it look better on a computer? and if someone could possibly do it for me I would really appreciate it. Sorry its not a hotrod but it does have a motor.

I tired posting it but its to big. Its the 3rd pic in my photo album or me on my sea-doo
thanks.

For starters you could try Photoshop's "sharpen" or "sharpen more" tool. But if it's just too blurry...it's just too blurry and no computer tool that I know of can salvage it.

I agree....you can only help so much. A little sharpening...adjusting levels and or contrast may help slightly. Watching CSI has given some people a false understanding that a computer can sharpen any photo. All you can do is is basically limited to the quality of the photo.

I used an old program called Lview. Not muck improvement, but this is the best I could get. Hope it helps. I mainly smoothed out the background, but did little to improve how you looked. As said, details in a photo HAVE to be there. TV and movies are full of bull when they take a really fuzzy pic and sharpen it to read a license plate or anything else.

I guess I am pretty much stuck the way it is. Thanks for the help and info! I guess I will just have to go out and get some more pics to get a better one.

All these programs can do is clean up noise and find and sharpen edges by adding pixels there. If you don't have any edges to start with, as in an out of focus pic, you can not sharpen them. I used PhotoImpact. Not sure it is any better.
