Answer:

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

The big picture on the left will be impermissible since the facial features are easily seen. However, the small thumbnail at the bottom, here and here will be permissible since the facial features are not distinguishable.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
