I am making a Dota 2 (video game) fan site. I want to use portraits of the characters of the game, but the game provides portraits that look really awkward when placed on a website:

enter image description here

His head is sliced at the middle and so is the beard. The bottom and left of the photo give a very unnatural straight-as-an-arrow edge to the photo. Unlike these crops which will blend nicely into a website:

How do I go about making the first crop look more "Smooth" like the second type of crop?

  • @mattdm I am doing that right now. What tags do you suggest for that question? – Bar Akiva Dec 28 '16 at 15:25

Here's an easy way. Launch the game and go to hero loadouts. For every hero, take a screenshot and open it up in any editor. Now, you just have to use a circular filter to get the portrait you are looking for. This is a long process I know, but your images will look much better on your website this way.

  • It sounds like a good idea, but I believe if I find a way to "Fix" the official portrait everyone sees on the wiki, it will be more recognizable in my website. Still 1+ :) – Bar Akiva Dec 28 '16 at 16:46
