    Is there any way to bulk remove contact photos? I have over 600 contacts and some have photos attached and some don't. It's starting to annoy my OCD and I want to bulk remove all contact photos.

    Does anyone know of an easy way?

    Most of them are from Facebook but some are from myself.

    The only thing I can think of is, turning that feature off in settings for Facebook.

    Then depending how many are left, manually deleting them. I thought there was a way to turn off contact photo's but I don't think there is.

    You could always try some sort of an export/import method if you have a computer. I believe that if you were to somehow export your contacts as a CSV file (this works on the iPhone: https://appsto.re/us/618vE.i ) the photos wouldn't be in the file. Then you've got to find a way to get them back into your contacts.

    I'm pretty sure you're going to have to do the rest using a computer.
