Is there a way to take the profile pics off of iMessage messages on the iPhone plus?

Thanks in advance!

I agree - the closest you can get is to set their profile photos to an all-white photo.

I'm including one below for your convenience. Right-click and save to desktop if you wish to use it:

You can't. I didn't know the new iPhones showed a profile pic in iMessage. I knew they did on all iPhones for group messages.

Agreed. I see a lot of people on other forums, especially reddit, asking for removal of contact pictures.
I like the full screen photos on phone calls, but don't think I'd want the profile pics on text messages. Is that a new feature on the 6 phones, or were the comments about group messages?
