I head up the Irish research for FM. I have a wetransfer file of updated facepics in the Irish Premier Division and Irish First Division that I'd like to send to a cutter. They aren't of the highest quality but look sufficient for FM purposes.
I've saved each headshot to one folder, all named in their individual FM database player ID. I'd like to send onto a cutter to include in the mega pack downloads but not sure where to post or who to contact? Any takers?
Make sure that the images you request are indeed missing or are real improvements.
If you can (after checking against existing MP) I'd suggest splitting them up into packs of 15-20 as if it's too big a job it might put potential cutters (ie, me) off
Great minds think alike

Take the picture URL (for example http://hns-cff.hr/files/images/_resized/0000021206_660_375_cut.jpg)
Remove '/_resized' and '_660_375_cut' to get full-size image (http://hns-cff.hr/files/images/0000021206.jpg)
Why these images are a full resolution?
Go to a player profile (e.g. https://www.futbalsfz.sk/andrej-fabry), inspect element on the picture to get the picture url (there's an unnecessary part before the actual link, remove the first part until the '#' ) (e.g. https://mediamanager.sportnet.online/images/0x0x4912x6393-255x325xmedia/csm/f/futbalsfz.sk/2018/09/1da91d3d-55ac-47cc-80aa-50dcea0360e9.jpg)
Remove '-255x325xmedia' to get the full-size image (e.g. https://mediamanager.sportnet.online/images/0x0x4912x6393-4912x6393xmedia/csm/f/futbalsfz.sk/2018/09/27c46704-1182-43a9-83ad-11cfbc68b4d1.jpg)
I don't know how, but stumbled across these, I've created a request for bayern, but other quality sources here -
Your cuts are invariably excellent from a cutting point of view, but some of the lighting on those sources is very poor (I can remember the Leverkusen and Wolfsburg sources in particular, for example) to the extent that I feel that previous 180x180 versions are still better. You know even better than I do that a poor source will rarely make a great cut.
That said, since you last spoke about your frustration at not seeing your cuts included in the megapack some years back, I've changed the way I decide which images are improvements or no, so I'm very surprised you feel that way. I've gone through your list of facepacks produced recently and from my recollection, the absolute majority of all of them (and I'd be surprised if it's less than 95%) were all added to the megapack unless I'm very much mistaken. I might have missed the odd pack here and there very occasionally but, knowing the quality of your work, I'm pretty sure there can't be more than a very tiny amount of images which didn't make it in. Please let me know if there's any in particular you have in mind so I'll review them again...
I think you've got me confused with someone else because up until now I can't recall ever complaining about my pics not getting in the megapack, only started taking notice this year with the search tool being available (never really used it before then) and I haven't made a Wolfsburg or Leverkusen pack in a long time, if ever.
simply delete the &w=150 part and HQ source is available .
Same tric for youth teams.
No offence taken and I'm sorry to hear that. I'll have another look at your Soton pack again; iirc it was just a case of some new sources being cut rather than anything in particular being wrong with yours'. One of the reasons why I don't like having duplication of recent cuts, and not only because of the extra work they give me.
Hands up I wasn't clear about the Wolfsburg or Leverkusen packs - I meant that those 2 packs, in particular, produced recently had very poor lighting which is why a lot of them weren't added, rather than meaning that you were the cutter. As for older comments, I think it was when we were still on the previous version of this forum - but it may well be the case I've confused you with someone else. Old age and all that
The only time I've kicked off or complained before was a series of drunken foul-mouthed rants one night on the old forum against someone who was only doing the big teams and nothing else and kept on beating me to the sources. I think I still hold the record for the longest warning note in forum history, it filled the entire page on my screen.
You (and I) have Baja to thank for that Austin cut, as he double checks my work all the time and has no hesitation in pulling me up when he thinks I've messed up - and I'm ever grateful for that
I don't really remember that particular rant but I now seem to recall that you also got royally pissed off at me for tweaking the colouring of same of your cuts, actually, rather than for not having included your cuts
Anyways, let's get back on-topic
if you use the image downloader (get it here for chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/image-downloader/cnpniohnfphhjihaiiggeabnkjhpaldj ) and open the picture in a new tab and replace the fit=1000x750 with fit=2000 from the url you will get a higher resolution.
Remove '_bvbprofilbild_small' or '_bvbprofilbild_regular' from the image URL
so this image would become this much larger image
Thanks to @MMXX for posting a link to this image format, I previously tried to figure out how to get the full-size from BVB's site without success
Anyone know how to make them bigger?
Replace 'custom_style_1' in the image URL with 'original' for full resolution images, like so:
https://assets.dfb.de/uploads/000/186/373/custom_style_1_Fynn_Otto.jpg would become
