    Enable show hidden files and folders in Folder options .
    Go to C , Users , "your user name" , AppData , Local , Packages , microsoft.windowsphotos_&wekb3d8bbwe , Localstate
    note the characters following "microsoft.windowsphotos_" might be different than mine .
    Open the Localstate folder set the view to medium , large or extra large icons . Delete the LargeTile and SmallTile jpeg that you donot want to have shown on the Live tile .
    Go to the Start screen . Right click the Photo app and click Turn off the live tile , reright click the Photo app and click Turn on the live tile . The offending pic's will be gone .
