Thank you. I’ll take that on board. I’ll have another go when I get a chance. I’ll check out the existing pending requests next. And I’ll post a draft in here. 

 

Looking forward to that 👍

 

It shouldn't take you more than 2-3 minutes for every cut once you get the hang of it. Of course, at the start it'll be a bit slower, naturally, but the learning curve is very gentle 🙂

My two new drafts. Any tips on the second guys hair? - his left hand side specifically There was a lot of green pixels on the source image 😢

Both look quite good, but there's a bit of margin for improvement in both 🙂

 

There's a bit of snow in the first guy's hair, especially on our right. There's a video in the first post on how to easily spot and clean it.

 

As for the second cut, it looks fine, but I think you may have overdone some clone stamping of the hair at the top and possibly on the right, because it seems a bit lacking in definition. Can we see the source? Also, there's a video in the last spoiler in the first post on how you can remove most of the green reflections in a source if you wanna take a look 😉

Second attempt + the source

 

 

Happy to see you've taken the feedback on board and both look much better; more than ready to be uploaded on the submissions forum, frankly 👏

 

Are they taking you long? Done right, it should only be a couple of minutes' work each image, but they'll take a wee longer initially naturally 😉

@mons  just haven't got the time atm to do these as much as I'd like to contribute. It's just as and when I find a spare bit of time.
I haven't got PS so I'm just learning my ways around photopea. Most “time consuming” stage is sorting out snow or any pixel discolorations such as around the edges of hair etc.
Here is another draft, this was fairly quick although the “hair fixing” stage almost made me gave up on this cutout…

Looks fantastic 👏

 

I don't think it's an issue in this cut but keep in mind that there's a difference between snow and light reflecting on the hair edges. The former should be removed, but not the latter - save yourself some time 😉

So yesterday I just uploaded a new pack which all the sources got rejected. But I do have a website (imageenlarger.com) which I did use for some cuts to make the sources bigger, and it gets the job done. I put some examples below. But can I still work on these rejected sources if the result is good?

@NassFas, if the person doesn't currently have a cut-out in the megapack, then they will be added. However, in my view, all 3 sources are much too small for a 250x250 cut anyway since the final cuts are all not very sharp, especially the last 2.

 

If the person currently has a cut-out, then they will be compared to the existing cut. If the existing cut is of a good quality, recent and looks similar, then I have to say it is unlikely they will be considered as improvements, in view of the above reasons.

 

Remember, more recent is nice, but it is not always automatically an improvement if the source or cut quality isn't there.

what platforms or fonts do you usually use to get photos of players?

Generally I look on the teams website, facebook or google

There's a whole thread on the best ways to find sources for your requests 😉

There's a link in my previous post, do you not see it?

How is this @mons ? Wanted to ask before uploading. I'm not sure if the collar is needed (I did watch the video).

Perfectly fine and almost exactly what we look for in our cuts 👏

 

One small thing you might want to keep in mind for future cuts is to rotate the image before cropping it, in the manner demonstrated in the below video. It's barely perceptible here but the face might be a bit more tilted in other cuts you do, so I thought it prudent to let you know about it 🙂

Perfect! 

Thanks for the heads-up. Will definitely look out for that.

Would you mind uploading it for me @mons ?

Did not know that there was a limit of requests (will of course remember next time I request a lot of faces).

 

Edit: I found a way to make it work. Just have to do some more cuts for it to work and upload as a pack.
