How can I remove a photo in the G2G?

I am somewhat red faced asking this question as the photo I posted as my Grandfather is not in fact him. The photo was sent to me by my 2nd cousin who had his family photo keepsake box when he started his own family tree a few years ago. He too was under the impression it was my Grandfather, but as I have researched more into him it turns out to be the Rev. O.D.Wiles. How he fits into my family history has yet to be determined but of course I have removed the photo from Ernest's profile. It still shows in the G2G though and of course that isn't correct.

It is no longer on the post, so it's disappeared on it's own, or you figured out how to remove it.

Photos which are deleted from all profiles will eventually removed from WikiTree but it's not an instant process.  Make sure this picture isn't on another profile and if not, then check back in a few weeks and it'll be gone.  Meanwhile only people on your trusted list would be able to see it anyway.

Thank you for replying Dave. It was only on the one profile and I have deleted it from there. I was just concerned over the g2g forum post as it still shows and is obviously incorrect. I will just add a comment to that post explaining the error.

Hi Wendy.  As Dave says, a photo eventually gets deleted if you disassociate all profiles from it, but I'm not sure if that would apply to a photo you added to a g2g post.  Seems like a stretch to me.  If you are logged in, and can access your original g2g post, there should still be an edit link under it, and you may be able to delete the file that way.

Thank you Dennis and Anne for replying. As much as I would have like the photo to have been of my Grandfather...putting a face to the name of a man I never knew, I am glad it has disappeared from view and the Rev Wiles has his face back :)
I'm not seeing the same thing Anne is seeing.  There is no actual photo displayed on the post, but there is still a link to a .jpg file, and that takes you to the photo at issue (I think), and identifies it as a thumbnail version of a privacy protected photo.  I think you would still need to edit out the link to the .jpg file.
