When a G Suite user adds a Google+ profile photo, the image is displayed on hovercards and in other places. If the user's Google+ account is disabled, however, the user will not be able to remove or modify the image.

Note:  Changes to the profile image can take some time to appear in all locations. 

Allow users to remove or change their profile image (admins only)

  1. Temporarily enable the user's Google+  account.
  2. The user account owner can then change or remove their profile image (see below).  
  3. Disable the Google+ account again.

Change your Google+ profile image

  1. On a computer, log in to Google+ and click Profile.
  2. Click Edit profile.
  3. Select or upload a new photo.
  4. Click SAVE.

Replace your profile image with a generic icon
