Removing photos from users due to poor quality

How do you remove a photo a user took? we recently cleaned up and did some work on our business. So when you search it, its the user's photo that first appears in the side view of the google search. Or is there a way to change the order of the photos that appear when our business is searched on google?

Hi @Omid S


Unfortunately Google doesn't provide a means for business owners to remove photos posted by other people.

The algorithm that determines the image that goes in the Knowledge Panel chooses the image it considers most relevant to the business.  I suspect in time, Google will change out the image to one of the newer ones.  Unfortunately there isn't a way to trigger this, it has to happen on its own.
