I have seen photos removed right away in some cases and others where it took several hours. It appears to fall in line with most edits. Sometimes, it can be super quick while other times, it can take a while. I had a situation where we added new photos and they did not show up until the next day. It could be another GMB glitch. I would ping GMB support for assistance.
