Unable to remove photos from Google Business that I uploaded

Hello,

 

I am having issues removing pictures from my google map listing that I uploaded a year ago. They do not show up in any of my google albums (photos,google+, my business) But you see them when you search my business and click my listing. When I click the pictures it shows it is from my website and only provides me the option of reporting them. What would be the best solution for this I have much better pictures now and want to be able to change them periodically with my latest projects (5 pictures at a time) with out filling up the album for customers. I need help please!

Can you share a link to the specific photos in question that you want to remove?

this is for 1 I have about 35 in total that all go back to my website even though I have removed them from my website. Very confusing it says it is from the web and shows the link to my website. (This is when I have clicked the picture)

You listed a link to your website. I meant for you to list a link to the photo on Google Maps. If you want a bunch removed, please list them all.

I'm not sure there is going to be a way to get these removed since they are coming from your own website (Google automatically scrapes them) and they are still there: http://www.houstonelitehomesolutions.com/wp-content/gallery/roof/20160320_150840.jpg

 

I will ask if it's possible.

Just wanted to update you that I'm currently trying to fight this but at the moment, they're not going to remove them since they don't violate any of the policies in place. I'll update you if I succeed in arguing that this is ridiculous :)

To help make my point can you describe for me why you don't want these on your page when you do have them on your website? I have a few arguments of my own but would love to pass along your specific comments.
