Removing an image from Google Images


Dec 9, 2011
I had a photo of an acquaintance and their name up on a web page for a number of years. The person recently contacted me and asked if I could please remove the photo (for very legitimate reasons). So I have now removed the photo.

However, Google Images still "remembers". It has a full-sized copy of the photo, and when searching for the person's name on Google Search, that photo comes up when they click on image results.

I've noticed there is a "Send Feedback" option on the photo in Google Images.

Is this the way to go in order to get the photo removed from Google Images? Is it more effective to claim copyright violation? (And this is in fact a blatant copyright violation in my view ...)
