I have read several different blogs and read several pages of the thread.  Can not find an answer.


Is there any specs for our google my business photos and which ones display. 


Some of my listings Display Profile Pics,  Another It displays a random photo, Then another It's the Cover Image.  I can not find any common ground.  


One of my listings will not update not matter what I do.


Is there a secret method to this? There doesn't seem to be size requirements.  
All My photos are different sizes and are all good quality. 


This is an annoying bug... The business shouldn't have to guess which photo work or not have direct control. 



Also, I noticed that some of my profiles have an updated UI.  Why or how do I update my other profile UI...   Support?


I am speaking of this photos
