Need help on this photo

Hi guys, so recently I took a screenshot from a video but it looks slightly blurry and grainy although it's on 1920x1080 resolution. It doesn't look nice when I set it as my wallpaper. Is there anything I can do with image editing software to make it look nicer?

Thanks in advance

The image is as attached

Basically the answer is "no". You can bring up the image in preview then in the adkument dialog move the "sharpness" slider all the way to the right. But it adds noise. Sharper yes but better? I don't think so.

In the same dialog box try making it very bright and low contrast. So it is just shades of white and you don't see the problems.

Go the other way with it. Give it a soft glow.
