Default Photos not updating in Latitude or Talk

Hey guys I'm having a bit of trouble getting certain things to automatically sync and such.

1. Google Talk photos are not updated to reflect my Google Account.
i.e. Some people have no photo displayed on the phone, but on my computer (in my Google Account) there is actually a photo, whether it be one the user selected or I set for them. And the photos that are there are not updated when/if someone changes it. The old one remains there.

2. Google Latitude photos do just the same. They are not updating...
Anyboy experiencing similar problems, or have a fix?
The photos seem to update, but slower in my contacts (People). But they don't update in the Google-based apps, which is wierd.

Thanks

I can't speak for Latitude, but for Talk it does not sync with your contact photos. You should only see the photo that your Talk contact has uploaded for themselves. For example...if you tap the empty photo icon for yourself, you can choose a photo from your albums. The photo you choose will be seen by whoever you use Talk with. In reverse, you will only see a photo of one of your Talk contacts if they have chosen a picture for themselves. Thats why when you click on the empty photo box of one of your contacts nothing happens. Hope you understood that! Give it a try with one of your Talk contacts and see if it works. That's how mine is set up.

I'm fully aware of how its 'suppose' to work. I know that friends have to set photos on their end in order for them to display on mine, and vice versa. What I'm saying is that when they do so the changes are not reflected on my phone, like they are on a computer.

Since posting this I have noticed others are experiencing the same problem and there is no known fix for it. I would assume its something on Google's end, and its just a matter of waiting for them to release an update that addresses these issues.

Thanks though

just want to bump this thread-- I still have this issue (a year later) in latitude. Anyone else?

GTalk seems to be inconsistent-- sometimes I see the photo, sometimes not.
It seems that most can see my photo on their end.

Figured it out. Whether you use Google+ or not, it is now fully in control of your Gmail profile in many ways. I changed my daughter's Google+ profile even though she doesn't use the service and now all is fine. Her profile and mine as well were updated on my phone.
