Tried one of my own using GIMP... before and after pics... Not sure if its good enough. I can probably do better with a better pic and more time.

Now that I see this against a dark background I definitely needed to do better around the hair especially....

@huttdes 

Thanks for your pics!

Do you see the hatching of the pictures in the background?
That means first 3 images are not PNG but JPG with hatched background.

It does not speak against actresses to put in several pictures here. In the end the best pictures for the resource are selected (and all other came to my second download offer, the whole collection - actor pngs collection.rar).
These actors are all already included in the resource. At my first post at the bottom is a list of actors already included or just look in the resource addon. I want to spare everyone the work and the effort to work something twice.

Although I support fanart.tv, I do not work with PNG cutouts myself, I've tried a lot, but I just do not get it well enough. You are already far ahead of me. If you go to fanart.tv recommendations Photoshop and GIMP are the best programs that are suitable. So you use the right program, now all you need is skill and practice. The image of Carrie Fisher does not have a flowing transition at the edges, from the image to the invisible. I hope you use Chrome, in Chrome you can view and open PNG as an extra tab quite simple with dark background. You can see the transitions there very well. Look at a few examples of @manfeed posts how it should look like.
See also section concerning the quality in my first post:
Quote:The edges should flow smoothly with the transparency. This is most noticeable in hair. The best are therefore real render graphics. 
@manfeed also uses a very useful and noteworthy solution look this post: https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=342468&pid=2840979#pid2840979

In the picture of Carrie Fisher she has costume and mask of the Star Wars movies. The image of the actress should not be directly related to a movie/franchise but be more neutral (but preferably eyecandy)
See also in my first post:
Quote:If possible, don't use movie role images, like scarlett johansson in her avengers suite, that doesn't look good in other appearences, use more "civilian looking clothing" (but sexy) images..
It would therefore fit more to my other artwork project: [ARTWORK PACK] Characterart for Movies/Moviesets

Great thanks in Advance

I have to say that the most time consuming task is to find a suitable source image... It's not easy, sometimes I would like to get a better result but the quality of the source takes a great toll in the final image...  Undecided anyway I will keep trying to fill the gaps in the list...

Ha... I didn't really check after I downloaded as I saw this last minute and rushing. The last time I searched for no background PNG files my browser was in standard light mode which Google would display a proper picture with white and grey hashground... Now I'm browsing in dark mode so it would be dark which I didn't realize. Look at this pic with a true no background PNG file in a light mode and dark mode browser. These are the exact same pictures... Lesson learned!

Image

So the pic on the left is what I was accustomed to seeing when doing a search like that.

Yeah, didn't really think about the pic of Carrie Fisher with the hairstyle... just wanted to try one out real fast before I had to head out.

I'll try and get some more proper uploads here in the near future.... I'll use those first 3 I sent up as before shots and use them for practice and try to make them proper.

OK. I have no idea of any modes in Chrome, I just meant to click on the image and you get a view where you can check everything, quality, transparency and transitions very easily:

You can also easily drag and drop local images into the browser and see the same.

I can totally understand that.
Since I am still a hobbledehoy with PNG editing i am still using finished PNG's as sources.
But pretty slowly i have scoured the whole web, or for the actresses on my toplist i find nothing. But no reason to give up.

Maybe, only when time and desire, you are able to record one whole editing process with Nvidia Experience (Nvidia Shadowplay) and share it here.
More than modest reputation points, I can not offer you in return.
