How to remove photos in google, hosted by imgrum & pictaram

Hello everyone,

I have the following problem:
Imgrum and Pictaram "puplished" all of my instagram photos whilst my instagram profil had been puplic.
I tried to delete them in instagram, I set my profil on privat, I contract both providers in facebook and received the following answere:

Hi,
Your account will be removed from our website in next 2 hours, if you send your Instagram username to us.
imgrum.org does not store your private information or photos on its own server. System uses Instagram's public API to get your public information and shows it dynamically to the visitors.
Search results on Google Images will also be removed but it could take some time according to Google's re-indexing policies.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
Bests regards
imgrum team

Furthermore, I requested the removel in google through the following link:

https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/6349986?hl=en

Unfortunaltely, google denied to remove my photos except of 2 of them (see the attached photo) and imgrum & pictaram stopped answering me in FB to solve this problem.

Please let me know if you have any advice for me.

Thank you a lot !!!

Hello,

I'd suggest to check if the images you want removed are live on the websites linked from Google images. 

If they're not live, you can request removal for those images using the URL removal tool in Search Console: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/removals

If they are still live, you can request them to remove those images first before using Google's removal tool. Also, as long as the images are removed from the live pages, Google will also de-index them on the next crawl automatically.

If your images contain any personal information that falls under our removal policies, you can then raise a request to remove that content from Google even if it's live on the web.

Hey :)

thank you for your answer. 
Well Pictaram and Imgrum said they removed my photos and I cant find them trough their website anymore, but google denied the removel through the tool because they said:

"Your request has been denied because the content hasn't been blocked with the appropriate robots.txt directive or metatags to block us from indexing or archiving this page."

What do they mean with "the appropriate robots-txt directives or metatags?"
Google cant index it, right?

Is their anything else I can do?

This has happened to me too and I am furious.  I post on instragram but not for companies to post and then to fill up google images when you search my name! 

Did they remove your images?  I have contacted them on facebook now.  There are just too many on google for me to request all of them be removed individually.

Will they disappear once bloody pictaram and imgrum have removed me from their site. 

Instagram really should stop this!
