How can I get an image not to show in the public view of a private profile?

I have a distant cousin whom I've never met and who lives half way across the country.  I've entered her ain Wikitree nd marked her "Private" (Red).  I uploaded a newspaper photograph of her wedding picture and I noticed it was showing in the Profile Public View.  So I went in and unchecked the "Set as Primary" button, but it still shows.  Do I have to remove it entirely -- why is it showing when I've UNhecked that button??

I think if you were logged in when you looked at the public view, and you are the profile manager or on the trusted list, you would be able to see the photo.  See if it behaves the same way when you're not logged in.  The implementation is described here:

Thanks, Dennis, but it didn't work.  I went to the page not logged in and it still showed.  (Contrary to what Wikitree says about a photo being private if the profile is private.)  Also, I checked and it's not connected with anyone else. I unchecked it as the primary photo and saved that but Wikitree keeps putting the checkmark back in.  Finally I uploaded an image of a blank sheet of paper and made that the primary photo and that worked!!
