I was wondering if any one could look at a wedding pic that was taken at a wedding I was part of. The picture seems alittle grainy and just in poor quality. Im a novice in PS , could someone please bring this pic to life. I would like to eventually print it off as a 5x7 if I could get the quality up

If you want to be able to print it, you should post the original file, in the original filesize...

If we edit this you still won't be able to make a good print.

This is the only file I have for the picture. They are scanned in from film negatives.

Correct. At 300dpi this image is 2 inches wide. :D

If you only want 5" x 7" I don't think it will be too bad a print with the new scan. For what it's worth, here's what I would do with it:-
(Before you do anything, make a copy of the image so you can compare any changes you make. Go Image > Duplicate, give it a name and click ok.)

First crop to remove the distracting pew and chair in the foreground. Choose the crop tool and set the options to 7" x 5" at 300 dpi. Drag in the image until you're satisfied with the crop then click enter.

Get rid of some of the grain. Go Filter > Noise > Despeckle.

Sharpen it up a bit. Go Filter > Sharpen > Unsharp Mask. Use these settings:-
Amount 100%
Radius 1.0 pixels
Threshold 0

Increase Saturation slightly. Go Image > Adjustments > Hue/Saturation and move the Saturation slider to around +10 (certainly no higher)

Don't be afraid to play with the settings. As long as you're working on a copy you can't go far wrong!

Good luck
