Faint sayagaki

Recommended Posts

I would put this at a longshot, but can anyone here offer suggestions on the left side of this sayagaki? I have put a few similar to perhaps bring us in the right ballpark. I would not reject that the lower left is a date, but appreciate hearing any options that I should consider.

Additional photos, and adjusted to the best of my ability to increase contrast and visibility.

Hi Ray I suggest that you try a UV light. You can often see more. Photoshop has a nice feature control/command i gives you an inverse view.

Ray, sometimes if you moisten it slightly it will increase the contrast. That is a tough one , hard to get a pattern recognized when it is not there. I think the 2nd and 3rd characters look like Mei-o or Mei-toku to me?

The file size is too small. Usually I would use the highpass filter and then change the blend mode to soft light. Dodge/burn can also help. But with 66,9 kb it is simply not possible.

Hi Uwe, I will take higher resolution photos and share. Also will try those methods.

 

And Steve, thank you! Was not something I had considered.
