@Mthcarmo, I appreciate the attempts but you really need to make sure that you follow the guidelines. We want all our cuts to have a collar while being cropped no more than 2-3 pixels beneath the chin. In cases like this where the collar is lower dow...

Good cut @mittadj, but we want all our cuts to have a collar while being cropped no more than 2-3 pixels beneath the chin. In cases like this where the collar is lower down or the neck is overly long in the original source, here's a method on how to nudge...

It's the guy on the right. Yours is just too small to provide a worthwhile cut @bigpole imo, but this should do fine instead 👍

Hmm, that seems to be the correct way to go about it. Can't think what might be the cause of it 😢

The bigger and better the source image, the bigger and better will the eventual cut be. It's worth spending time looking for the best possible source rather than cutting the first one which comes to hand. Here's a thread with some hints on how to locate t...

The aspect ratio issue is still present @mittadj. You should be able to get a good quality cut from this no problem, but please crop the source before using remove.bg and maintain aspect ratio and constrain proportions when cropping, otherwise I'll keep r...

@mittadj, the aspect ratio isn't quite right here too, like it was for this cut. Perhaps this post will explain it better 👍

If you drag a folder named ABC into a location with a folder already named ABC, Windows will prompted you if you want to merge the contents of the folder, overwriting when prompted. As long as the folder structure on your system is the same as that in the...

No worries, happy to see you're receiving it in the constructive spirit it was imparted. Your cutting technique is broadly fine, just a little bit of refinement needed here and there, so keep it up 🙂 If you have any issues without any techniques or way fo...

@Ghost77, the area taken up by the face is too small for this to be worth cutting. Please keep in mind the below when making requests; they're included in the guidelines on making requests for a reason, after all. If you are requesting an image...

Do you have the original source from which this was cropped @bp89? Pity to have to downscale it to 180x once the bits above and below the head are removed…

@mittadj, apart from the wrong dimensions, do remember to crop the original source to an area around the head before putting it through remove.bg. This will ensure that the final cut retains as much of the original source's sharpness, which is slightly le...

The current cut is quite recent, very similar and of a very good quality, hardly worth cutting.

Watch the below video from 2:50-3:10, where it explains how you press shift when using the rectangular marquee tool to choose a square to crop. You then select image size and resize it to 250x250, making sure that the below buttons are ticked.

It's good that you are nudging the collar up, but perhaps there isn't really a need to nudge it that much up. Just a few pixels at the bottom will look more realistic. Read this post for a more detailed explanation. Also remember to check your dimensions...

@mittadj, be careful to retain an image's aspect ratio when cropping it because you run the risk of the eventual cut being stretched out (or squashed) when compared to the original image, as has happened here.

Good cut @mittadj, but do try and crop closer to the top of the head. Leaving any more than 2-3 pixels above it is just a waste of screen real estate 😉

Try and avoid cropping images so high up @Gtomasibi, it doesn't look quite right and isn't really necessary tbph.

Not bad @Gtomasibi, but if an image is tilted to one side, please rotate it so that the eventual cut is as upright as possible, using the below technique before cropping it 👍

There are around 4,500 pending images. We can't do everything ourselves. You've been frequenting this forum for a while now, can I encourage you to give cutting a go yourself instead of depending on the community to do it for you? Have a look at this...

@jockemed5e, this image was cut in the 2022.02 megapack, and the one you have uploaded doesn't have a transparent background or the correct dimensions anyway.

@Apiwit Sukyam, this is a good initial draft but it's not quite game-ready yet, so I've changed it to source. It needs to be cropped closer to the chin and resized to 250x250 Have a look at this thread for guidelines for cutters and video tutorials o...

@Brockie19, neither are remotely big enough to be improvements, and I would imagine such a relatively high-profile player will have better images available anyway. Please do your best to find them.

@Lucian vidican, the image you have uploaded isn't good enough. If you take a selfie on a clear background, it would help us give you a better cut-out.  Requesting an image once is enough, no need to do it twice. And it should be requested as so...

Not a bad cut @The fixer , but it's not better than the current cut, more an alternative than anything.

@FBMAN, please upload images in their original size. Upscaling them so that they fit 800x800 makes little sense and only serves to produce low-quality sources such as these.

Also, when you have a number of images to upload, my suggestion would be to do so as a pack, where you can upload up to 50 images at one go 😉

@RoCCo_42, these are decent images but the area taken up by the face is quite small, so getting it to 250x250 would mean that the image loses a lot of sharpness so wouldn't be an improvement. If they were available in larger dimensions, they would, howeve...

@Gtomasibi, good work but there's a couple of things you can do to improve the quality of your cuts. If you're using remove.bg, you need to crop the original source to an area around the face. The free version of remove.bg downscales all images to a...

You can't improve until you try 😉 If we don't know who it is, then I'll just have to reject it.

@mattdonne, these are, yet again, huge. There's no reason why a cut has to be 5.7MB. When saving them, can I have a screenshot of what you're saving them as?

This guy hasn't been in the game since FM18 @julkjulk, so adding a cut for him makes very little sense at this stage…
