Google Places Bug Prevents New Images

Google PlacesThere are several threads and complaints from business owners that they cannot update their photos on their Google Places page.

The central thread is at the Google Places Help forum where Google has confirmed the issue.

The issue seems to be where using the image source feature from a third party site. It simply won't add a new image that way. Here is a picture:

Another issue I see is that all my business places images I uploaded years ago seem to be gone - maybe it is part of this bug.

Google's Vanessa confirmed the issue saying:

We know you're having trouble, and we're working on it -- but in the mean time, if you're having trouble uploading your photos via the Places dashboard, use the photo upload tool via the listing itself, and manage them via your Picasa web album.
