In most scenarios, businesses cannot block people from uploading photos to your GMB listing via the “upload to public” feature. The one exception to this is if the business is getting slammed with tons of inappropriate photos from users due to a public media incident. For example, the stone supplier referenced in this article had the ability to add a photo disabled after users uploaded tons of statues of genitalia after the social media scandal.
If a public user has uploaded an image you would like it removed from your listing, and it also breaks a Google guideline, you will need to flag it to have removed.
