Hello Angela Cronin,
 
Thank you for reaching out. I understand your concern of removing certain photos, and I would be more than happy to help!
 
To prevent a photo from displaying on Nest Display:
  1. Say “Hey Google, remove this photo” and follow the prompts to confirm the removal.
  2. To do this manually, long-press on your photo frame, and tap on the archive icon that appears.
If you remove a photo, it will be archived in Google Photos, so it will no longer appear in your main Photos view, but will remain in any albums that it is already in. Archived photos can be viewed in the “Archive” section in Google Photos. 
 
Another option is if you have the Face Group feature on. This feature identifies faces so you are able to see all of the photos of a person in an organized layout.

To delete that person,
  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Photos app Rdianco_0-1630342374286.png

     

    .
  2. Sign in to your Google Account.
  3. At the bottom, tap Search.
  4. Next to the row of faces, tap View all.
  5. At the top right, tap More Rdianco_1-1630342374283.png

     Hide & show people.
  6. Tap the faces you want to hide. To show a face, tap the box again.
  7. At the top right, tap Done.
 
Please let know if you have any other questions or concerns. Thanks!

Hi 459,

 

Thanks for posting.

 

For you to remove pictures from your Nest Hub/Nest Hub Max, go to https://goo.gle/2Tp6dIH via web browser or through Google Photos. Select the picture you want to delete and it will be removed from your Nest Hub as long as you're using the same account.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Kind regards,

Dan
