@HRiddick, there's a cut with UID 972832426, which doesn't seem to be an FM UID. Looks to me like it's Embolo (98029385), can you confirm it please?

Yeah that's Embolo, who should of course be 98029385 - the image must have been saved as his Getty Images ID in the request

Must have accidentally deleted his cut before uploading the pack, uploaded here instead

@HRiddick, 39014574 is in psd - can you upload it in png please?

That's a strange one - uploaded here
This request can be rejected as @Belajariman has already taken it and beaten me to the punch by one minute

FYI ID 85152912 should be 83152912 @mons
Please reject this one @mons !
I've cropped and resized it so that it's around 180 pixels high, and I don't think it's beyond cutting, really. Plenty worse sources have been cut

I'll give it a go myself in the weekend if nobody's cut it since then


For sources like this, this link here (or here when that one is down) is a godsend, as evidenced in the completed request

Yeah I use sources from here where possible too, but unfortunately not every team (Crystal Palace, Huddersfield, Stoke etc) has proper portrait images available there, only from the Premier League or their own websites. Hopefully that's not the case next season!
It looks like the below is the favoured option for now, but I want to hear more feedback before making it official
  • Have 2 standard sizes: 180x180 and 250x250.
  • Leave the existing images be – no resizing.
  • Everyone should strive to make all the new cuts in the larger size, but if good source images simply are not available, 180x180 will do as well.
In the meantime, wherever possible, I'd like all cutters to start cutting in 250x250 where the sources allow. Should we not go down that road, it'll be easy enough to resize them down to 180x180...

I'm still not at all a fan of the idea personally. A lot of the packs I've released recently have been clean-ups of SI cuts, where the originals at 250x250 are messy and not cropped correctly to the chin and top of the hair, so by cleaning the snow and scaling down to 180x180 the results usually end up pretty good, while with the new resolution I'd either have to scale up the images and lose image quality, or they would not be cropped correctly.

Also, I tend to release packs for a lot of major teams with sources from the Premier League and UEFA websites every year, and the new resolution would mean all of these sources would likely be unworkable as they would have to be upscaled (and therefore not worth cutting). I know that it is not priority to cut new images every year and that this is only a personal preference of mine (where I strive to make new cuts at least of equivalent quality to the existing megapack image if it's not a clear improvement), but up to date images in the megapack for major teams are always regularly requested meaning they are at least in demand, and this would be made more difficult at the new resolution.

Finally, stylistically I'm not keen on the inconsistency that would be caused by mixing image sizes in game, for example seeing half of the players in your team with a smaller image and half with a larger image, and while this would become less of a problem over time I think the transition period would be a good few years at the very least for even the bigger name players to have 250x250 improvements, let alone the majority of the 200,000 images in the megapack.

Of course I won't be throwing up a fuss if the changes go ahead as I recognize all the positives and will strive to work at the new resolution where possible, just thought I'd put in some more thorough input
Not a big fan of this idea personally! If the megapack was starting now as a brand new project then it would make perfect sense to use a higher resolution, but the time it would take to resize the huge amount of cuts we have now, only to result in nearly 200,000 poor quality images, would really not be worth the effort. Plus as you mentioned above, sometimes it is possible to work with poorer quality sources to produce good cuts at 180x180 but this would be nearer impossible at 250x250 or bigger.
With the recent news reports looks like this guy will be out of a job soon/won't be in the game for much longer...
