Here I will be displaying all 30 NHL team player photos that I will be updating and adding to our wonderful game in the next few weeks. I will do my best and try and aim for a start of season release for all packs but until then I will be making a flurry of photos and updating the teams I have already done as NHL training camp and exhibition proceed.
Here is how I have now figured how to make my player photos for the game,
Firstly I search as many full photos from https://www.gettyimages.ca/ as possible, then I individually search for the best possible photo for any players not on Getty, crop all of them one by one to where it looks best (not just a severed head) remove.bg one by one after then in Photoshop I resize width % to around 125-130 depending on photo then when copied in template I set layer height to 1.5 in, center the image, sharpen, remove black and white matte, jersey swap and edit any players that need proper team apparel
each team has taken about 3 hrs per so far but I'm getting quicker
that being said I need to be careful 🙃
I know this is a somewhat tedious method but I find that using full sized HD images from Getty gives the best result
