Are the dimensions of the cutout 250px*250px? If it's not a square image it might display in a different position to normal.

Yep. I have moved it to the centre. It just looks too small

Can you post the cutout image and the source image as an attachment?

Because you didn't crop the source image first, your cutout image has a large amount of empty space above the face, and a lot of the shirt below, which means that the face is small in the cutout.

Here's a fixed version, does this look better in your game?

That looks perfect. What do I need to do differently next time?

In the future you can use a site like picresize.com (if you don't have an image editor) to crop the image to a square size (cropped to just the area around the face) before putting it through remove.bg
This is how I cropped your image, for example:

Oh right. I think I know now. Do I need to change the canvas size?

Either that or the Crop tool should work, but it might depend on which program you use

The Crop tool should be fine, then. If you're not sure how to use it then this article might help: https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-crop-in-photoshop-4690942

I need some help, I am cutting a face and the edges aren’t smooth and the quality is poor even though the source image is good. I also have bits of the background remaining even tho I’m using tools to remove the background and it looks like it’s removed but bits remain on the cutout

Posting the source image, the cutout you've produced and what technique(s) and program(s) you used to get there would help us to be able to give you the best possible feedback

Have you tried using remove.bg for your cutouts? It should give better results

You can use remove.bg to get the first draft of the cut-out, then use Photoshop to refine it. Have a look at the tutorial in the opening post on how to use it. You'll get better results than what you've produced thus far for sure.

P.S. You can upload more than 1 attachment per comment by clicking the add attachment button multiple times.
P.P.S. If you quote a person in your reply (like I have here), that person gets a notification and may be able to reply more quickly than if you don't. Just saying

I'd recommend giving it a try - there are a few steps on how to use it in the first post of this thread if you're unsure.
This is the result I get using remove.bg after just cropping the image:

Here is a few i have made

In the first cut, the source was cropped so that part of top of his hair has been cut off prematurely. For the second and third cut, the cut would look much better if the source image was rotated a few degrees clockwise so that the cut-out was perpendicular rather than slightly slanting. For the third cut, you cropped off the source too close to the head with the result that the shoulders were cut off, and there's an empty space either side of the cut.

Eye for detail is important

For the crop tool, in the 'W x H x Resolution' dropdown, set it to '1:1 (Square)', which will crop the image to the correct ratio, and then either use Image>Image Size to resize the image to 250x250px, or File>Export>Save for Web where you can export the image as 250px from a larger image size.

I have had a go at creating a team pack for Mansfield Town season 2020-2021 for the first and youth team.

I am not the best at it but here is my attempt. Unfortunately some images have a bit of the snow affect which is above my ability to fix. Can anyone please offer help smarten this up ready for FM21 please?

The file has 43 players in total of which you will notice 10 youth players that are not in the FM20 database. These are the new first year scholars in the U18s team which are expected to be in the FM21 database and I will update their ID's once FM21 is released. I doubt their images will be in the new game by default as the club only updated the profile page and images for the youth team over the last couple of days so I thought I would get a head and create their cut outs in advance.
