High quality and recent sources for danish superliga here : https://mbmediasolutions.photoshelter.com/gallery-collection/Danish-Superliga-2018/C00002PW3vvz_IQ8

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.

like this:

//ssl.c.photoshelter.com/img-get2/I0000AWPIl57bli4/fit=1000x750/g=G00005bVRzXFcD1Y/40-Daniel-Anyembe.jpg

//ssl.c.photoshelter.com/img-get2/I0000AWPIl57bli4/fit=2000/g=G00005bVRzXFcD1Y/40-Daniel-Anyembe.jpg


If after doing this, the face stills show a watermark across the face, just change the string to fit=500x500 and you'll get the biggest thumbnail without a watermark.
If after doing this, the face stills show a watermark across the face, just change the string to fit=500x500 and you'll get the biggest thumbnail without a watermark.

Another trick I use for Photoshelter images is to use fill=350x1440 (which will show with no watermark). If this image is too narrow, just paste it directly on top of a wider fit, for example using fill=800x1440.

Example links:

//ssl.c.photoshelter.com/img-get2/I0000Az50V8dzZ9M/fit=/fill=350x1440/g=G0000rw36luh.mUw/I0000Az50V8dzZ9M.jpg

//ssl.c.photoshelter.com/img-get2/I0000Az50V8dzZ9M/fit=/fill=800x1440/g=G0000rw36luh.mUw/I0000Az50V8dzZ9M.jpg
That's an awesome trick
Feyenoord players:
Default URL is something like this: https://www.feyenoordmedia.nl/images/thumbs/8682ebd43f594a049098da16afe853ae_800_600.jpg
Replace 'images/thumbs' with 'media' and get rid of everything after the underscore, so the url looks like this for full-size image:
https://www.feyenoordmedia.nl/media/8682ebd43f594a049098da16afe853ae
For sources on EFL websites, such as with this request:

Replace the segment "?preset=square", or any other variant like "?preset=header" with "?anchorpoint=top" to get the largest portion of the top of the image, "?anchorpoint=middle" for the centre portion and "?anchorpoint=bottom" for the bottom portion. These can be combined to make a larger image than the one provided on each player profile.

Example links:

https://www.barnsleyfc.co.uk/api/image/cropandgreyscale/74506261-81ac-4ac8-b368-56d2c90dce89/?preset=square&greyscale=false
https://www.barnsleyfc.co.uk/api/image/cropandgreyscale/74506261-81ac-4ac8-b368-56d2c90dce89/?anchorpoint=top&greyscale=false

I see Uefa pics on website are now smaller, changed from 324x324 to 200x200. Is there any way to get these images bigger?

Doesn't look like it I'm afraid, hopefully it'll be back to normal with the club teams next season
Atletico de Madrid bigger versions. Just change this:

https://img-estaticos.atleticodemadrid.com/system/fotos/7119/cantera_140x140/fede_obama.JPG
https://img-estaticos.atleticodemadrid.com/system/fotos/7119/destacado_460x460/fede_obama.JPG

It's valid for profiles on staff too. Just change the path before filename (usually the name of the player)

Sometimes pics aren't best quality though

Best sources for Napoli or Serie A players? I really want to do a Napoli facepack for myself. Callejon really needs a update but i can't find a good picture. I have tried gettyimages and google already
Thai League sources:

https://sealssportsimages.photoshelter.com/gallery-collection/Football-Soccer/C00001s1clFVTWGM

"Search this collection" at the top and you can easily find the player you're looking for. Then right click on the image u want from there and copy the images web address and change "fit=188x188" to "fit=3000" in the link

Is there any way to get images bigger than 324x324 from the UEFA website?

Unfortunately not, the image quality/compression seems to have got worse over the years too
Thought I'd posted this here before but apparently not...
For fupa.net profile images, useful for German lower league players:
change 256x320 (or 128x160 etc) in the URL to 512x640 for the largest size like below
cdn.fupa.net/player/jpeg/512x640/WuR0xvgtFq1NPrGeoGoPXaUWNohAdOzaBiGcV8Fi

Even better, a recent change allows higher resolution versions for some images by changing the resolution parameters to 1024x1280 or 2048x2560, and by changing jpeg to png to get the image without jpeg compression
For example:
cdn.fupa.net/player/png/1024x1280/be47dCCoxjKeNUnvKwxq098QbC57NPrVDNC3oKnZ
or
cdn.fupa.net/player/jpeg/2048x2560/be47dCCoxjKeNUnvKwxq098QbC57NPrVDNC3oKnZ
Bigger pics from LaLiga's website. Just change the size 256x278 to 2048x2225.

(Edited because I found a better way than the previous one )

These are much too small to cut unfortunately
Linkedin is a good source for staff pics sometimes. If you don't know, there's a trick: If you click in the profile pic, it makes it bigger.

Example: Default pic vs. bigger pic

Not sure if anyone's already figured it, but great source of Croatian national team players and youth
https://hns-cff.hr/en/national-teams/

Once you've found a picture remove "/resized" and "_660_375_cut" from the url and a nice big image shows up
One extra correction for getting the best quality images from fupa.net sources:
Take the default image url like below
https://cdn.fupa.net/player/jpeg/256x320/TbITR5FZ07vMV0H2gGuOIhyF5sDeomave10kBw5p
and replace jpeg/256x320 with origin like below. This gets the original image size rather than a resized one so you don't lose any image quality.
cdn.fupa.net/player/origin/TbITR5FZ07vMV0H2gGuOIhyF5sDeomave10kBw5p
