I could not disable the photo icon the world map. No offense but I really don't care about other player photo when I'm playing, I just want my map free of this unnecessary icon.
I try to desactivate photo mode in the game option, and to disable the icon in the legend option, but nothing work, the phto icon still appear on the world map, the only way is to select each of them manually and delete them.
Is there any way to fix this?
For the technical info, I play on PC, with mouse and keyboard, and I have the ultimate edition with season pass.

I've merged together several threads about being unable to filter out Community Photos in the Misc map settings. This issue was marked as resolved in TU 1.0.4. As we have had no new reports that this issue persists, we will now be locking this thread.
If you encounter any trouble when using the map filters, or with the Community Photos feature, please don't hesitate to open a new thread so we can investigate further.
Can't hide Community photos from the world map as the "Misc" filter does not work as intended.
I really hate seeing the world map littered with spoiler community screenshots that block actual important things on the map.
Just wanted to mention it here so it can be added to the bug list.

How did this pass QA testing? Any tester worth their weight in gold would have IMMEDIATLY caught this. It's literally one of the very first things I noticed when beginning the game *mega facepalm*
This on its own is embarrassing, however what it represents is more insidious: if they so casually missed this glaring, easy-to-find bug, then what other more critical game systems have they completely missed/ignored. Something bad is going on in the Ubisoft offices methinks...

PLEASE fix the Map Legend so we can filter out pictures! The options is there but it currently doesn't work and is bugged!

Yeah, they need to get this fixed before people get far enough in the game (though they probably already are) and start posting spoiler images. Not to mention as had to see as the glowy spots are on the map, the last thing we need is people's photos covering them up. It seems to work ONCE when you first launch the game as turning it off does remove the pictures, but then images start appearing while you are playing. Then toggling it on and off doesn't do anything after that.

In AC Odyssey you could easily turn of player photo markers on the World Map. How can you do this in Valhalla? Thanks!

Same issue, can't turn them off so it's spoiler central. Such a disappointment.

I've been trying to filter out the community pictures that appear on the map (the little white squares) by selecting the "label list", scrolling down to the bottom and clicking the label where an eye shows. Once clicked the eye is striked through and greyed out, implying they should be disabled. However, when you go back to the map the community pictures are still there...

Well ubi support told me "While I'm sorry to read over your experience, currently those online services are working as intended."
So not like their support is any more competent than the QA for this game.
That's ridiculous. The ability to filter the photos DOES exist, but does not work at all. That is certainly not "working as intended"...
Come on Ubi...

Ubisoft, I absolutely HATE the photos showing on my map yet when I open the filters and turn off the "Misc" where the 3 types of photos are located NOTHING happens and they remain on my map yet if I turn off any of the other filters they will disappear but not the Misc to disable photos. WHY?!? Please fix this! I know it's minor overall but I don't want to see photos littering my map with what could also be potential spoilers if I happen to cross over one while browsing the map if it's close to another point I am trying to mark with a waypoint.
This game feels very unfinished and rushed. This is for PC version of the game and can't speak for consoles but I would assume same bug there as well.

It's a problem for me as well.
Should have really been noticed by QA.

When I open map, there is lots of these annoying rectangles with photos created by other players. In legend settings at the bottom, there is a "Misc" category I can click on that which I guess should hide the photos but it does not work and I can still see then on the map.
Is the any other way how to get rid of the photos before this is fixed?

There is an option on the map, to hide misc. stuff like photos and the like from the main map.
But it doesnt work, if you opt to hide them and start viewing the community photos anyway (as they dont get hidden for some reason) it will cause a CTD after a few photos.

Actually i had to look at the eventviewer after the CTD, because it was actually a "display driver unresponsive and restore".
Seems the game caused a D3DDRED2.
Its a fairly general code, its a noncritical crash according to the logs, but it is almost always a software created problem. (in rare causes its faulty hardware, but i can rule that out)
But it is clearly caused by the game as its mentioned clearly in 2 seperate logs right at the timestamp the display driver crash happened.
Its an asus rog strix RTX 2060 OC non-super edition. (not using overclocking in this case) running on 457.30 drivers - clean installed.
Edit : i cant repeat it very consistently, i do know i cant hide the community items though, that should be fairly easy to reproduce for anyone.. just click the hide option on the map options, it doesnt make community pics disappear from view.
