One appears to be sump leak (front bottom right corner of the engine - 1st pic), the second one is what is confusing me as it seems to be between the engine and the torque converter (right bottom back corner - 2nd pic, the oil is leaking from the bolt at the bottom which is coming from inside), but the screw that has the oil is coming from the engine bay. So is this the engine sump or some other gasket between the engine or the torque......

Also, looking at the oil drops can people contribute there experience if this is heavy leakage or small leakage or really small leakage. After changing the OFG and VCG recently (to which I was losing about 1 litre in 3-4 weeks with 250-300KM driving) I don't know how much I will be losing now. But would appreciate your experience contribution here.
What your pictures show is the result of gravity. Look up from there to find the leak.
