There's a MeFite with amazing abilities for the computerized "zoom and enhance" trick who demonstrated those skills in an AskMeFi post a few months ago. If we can find that MeFite, s/he might be able to use those skills to help ID the hit-and-run car that struck down a DC Comics artist last weekend.

Several months ago there was an AskMeFi post in which the asker was looking for help in identifying an object in a blurry, poorly lit photo. The object may have been a license plate, but I can't remember.
Despite the poor quality of the image, a responder was able to identify the object after applying some kick-ass Photoshop skillz -- some sort of filters perhaps? At any rate, the work was awesome and everybody was impressed. I'm thinking those same skills might be useful in helping with the investigation noted in the Jalopnik link above.
Anybody remember the post I'm talking about?
