I made an attempt this morning to clean up a photograph of an old photo of Seed & Feed Marching Abominable band member Rob Anderson. It's a photo taken at the 1997 Inman Park Parade and I believe it's a crop from a slightly larger photo and unfortunately it's slightly out of focus as a result of either the subject moving or the photographer not attaining focus. To do this I saved the jpeg from the published image on Facebook and then loaded it into Topaz Sharpen AI. This software did a reasonable job of making the image slightly clearer, but only having access to the jpeg and now a RAW file wasn't optimal. Of course given the time that the photo was taken there was never going to be a RAW file to use although I suppose a high resolution Tiff file from a scanned image could have improved the sharpening process.
