On Google My Business, 4 images are shown that come from our blog posts. Because they are not directly uploaded onto our GMB account, I don't have a dashboard where I can remove or modify them. 

 

I'd like to only show photos of our own roofing and construction work on our GMB page. Because I used an image of the Southernmost house in Key West for illustrative purposes in one of our blog posts, it shows up when you search our business.

 

How do I remove an image from Google My Business that was scraped from our blog post?

This isn't quite the same scenario. This solution suggests to contact the webmaster, but that would be me. So, it sounds like the way to have Google NOT pick it up is to remove it from my website altogether. That's not the aim, although I'd do that if it came down to it.
