The Phantom Chrome Extension makes it possible to easily export and download photos and photo data from any Google Business Profile. Currently, Phantom supports downloadable exports of individual photos associated with each Google Business Profile in addition to graphed data.

Follow these steps to export Google Business Profile photos and photo data:

  1. Find a business profile in Google Search or Maps
  2. Click the export data button
  3. Use the Export buttons to download photo data

Once Phantom has been installed, it will be enabled by default for Google Chrome, allowing you to analyze and export photo data using Phantom’s Photo audit button, which will automatically display in Google Search & Maps on Google Business Profiles.

Find a business profile in Google Search or Maps

Search for the name of your business (or a competitor) in Google Search or Maps. I recommend using the the following branded search + locality format to ensure the results you want: business name + locality

For example, Napoli 3 St. Charles

Click the Photo audit button

Once you’ve found the business profile that you want to analyze in Google Search or Maps, click the Photo audit button.
