    Photoshop Request - Improving Picture Quality

    Hey guys,

    I was at an event a few months ago that Kal Penn was at and took a picture with him but unfortunately only had my Blackberry to take the picture. I've tried to improve the picture quality in Photoshop 7.0 myself but I just can't seem to get this picture to look any better.

    Can anyone here try to make the picture better quality? There is a lot of noise and it's just all around low quality. I've attached the full size picture but feel free to resize it if that makes it easier to edit.



    Thank you!

    This can be improved but i'm afraid not with that eye candy result.. it's just because of poor camera of blackberry ... I would give it a go at night if I get some spare time.

    Here's a quick edit, HighPass filter around 4.8. Dodge Tool around the eyes and have tried to remove the streak of flash in the eyes as this made my eye balls hurt. Quick levels and Curves. Topped off with some Noise Removal. Looks a bit better I think

    Yeah, a bit . . .
    Beast, it looks great. Just one suggestion. Clone out the naked light bulb; it's hurting my eye balls! LOL.

    Clareby, they did haha will work on the bulb but fortunately for me the naked bulb just made my eyeballs twitch rather than inflict pain

    It's something I use when I remember but forget about on most occasions. Handy tool to know though buddy

    Nem, Nice job buddy although the vignette starts on the eyeballs if I stare too long =
