  3. Add Photos: Click on Photos From the menu. Then, click the + Icon to upload new photos.
  4. Choose the Right Category: Select the appropriate photo category (e.g., Interior, Exterior, Team, etc.).

However, uploading photos directly to Google My Business can sometimes be problematic. That's where Circleboom Publish comes in. Here's why Circleboom Publish is a better option:
