is there a way of cheating google image search so that when people search for my band online they find the pictures we want them to and not the old ones?

the problem is that some lazy promoters are using photos with the old line up and they obviously just use the first ones that come up on google search.

Yes, but it's complicated.

what if he were to alter the old photo files either by archiving or changing the names of the pics to something ambiguous and putting the new picks in the old ones place?

E-mail photos to the lazy promoters before they can be arsed searching?

you'd be amazed at how many of them ignore that part.

"here is the new promo photograph. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE ANY PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE INTERNET AS THE BAND LINE UP HAS CHANGED"

Fire the promoters and hire new ones until you find a bunch that actually do pay attention?

unfortunately promoters don't work for us, they are the ones that book us to play and then promote the gig locally.
